    Location 5.0 /10

    The Village Club Pierre et Vacances Les Restanques in the Gulf of St. Tropez is located amidst natural surroundings on a 62-acre estate, which includes 47 acres of green space. Inland about 1.2 miles as the crow flies from the seaside, it is situated between Sainte-Maxime to the northeast and Grimaud to the southwest. The Gulf of St. Tropez is just a few minutes away by car; once you're there you can easily make out the city of St. Tropez.
    The train station nearest to the Village Club is the Fréjus/Saint-Raphaël TGV train station 18 miles away. Toulon TGV train station is 41 miles away.
    For those arriving by plane, the nearest airport is Toulon-Hyères, located 30.4 miles away. Nice-Côte d'Azur International Airport is 53.4 miles away from the Village Club.
    Its somewhat isolated location amidst the natural surroundings is both an advantage and a drawback. An advantage as it guarantees a calm, 100% natural setting, but a drawback because a vehicle is required to explore the surroundings of the Village Club, discover the region's points of interest, or just to get to shops and restaurants located outside its gates.

    Accommodation 7.25 /10

    The Village Club Pierre et Vacances Les Restanques in the Gulf of St. Tropez offers various kinds of accommodations.
    These accommodations are divided into classic studios/apartments and villas, with a zone reserved for each type of accommodation. The flats are located high up on the hill. There are available in 2-room (for 4/5 people) up to 4-room (for 8 people) versions. These are what you could call the 'basic' accommodation. With a total surface area of between 30 and 62m² (according to the number of rooms), the 2-room apartments include: a bedroom with double bed, a living room with 2 single sofa beds and 1 pullout bed, a bathroom with a toilet and a fully equipped kitchen.
    The studios measure 26m² and have a living room with two single sofa beds and 1 pullout bed, a booth with bunk beds, a bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen.
    The site has around one hundred villas spread out around a lake with between 3 and 5 rooms for a total surface area of between 44 and 110m². Some of these villas have a balcony, a loggia or a terrace. They are real little houses with all the comforts and amenities: equipped kitchen, toilet and wash basin on the ground floor, toilet in the bathroom on the first floor.
    No matter what kind of accommodation you choose, Pierre et Vacances offers three ranges of comfort: Comfort, Select and VIP.
    The Comfort range is the basic range. The Select range offers services a grade above the preceding category, that is to say a more modern and refined decor and furnishings. The VIP range is the very best the site has to offer. The VIP range comprises recently renovated accommodation units, higher-end amenities (kettle, toaster, Senseo coffee machine, kitchen equipment), a Hi-Fi system, a wide-screen TV and a DVD player, all set in a calm area or with beautiful views. But all this comes at a price.
    Of all the accommodations we have seen, the villas provide the best comfort, and more importantly a privileged location with a view of the lake, surrounded by greenery and the feeling of (almost) being alone in the world in the middle of nowhere.
    We must admit, the apartments are less exciting. The Comfort range lacks charm and the access is really quite depressing; it looks like the lanes of a public car park. Despite all of this, the large covered balconies allow guests to take in the view of the village, and if you look past the slightly dated aspect of the sofa bed covers and the decor, they are really quite comfortable.
    However, wherever you are staying on the site, you are never more than 7 minutes from the restaurants and the reception.

    Overview 8.00 /10

    The Village Club Pierre et Vacances Les Restanques in the Gulf of St. Tropez is certainly worthy of its village classification. Spread out over 62 entirely enclosed acres and guarded 24 hours a day, the site does actually seem to be a small village where greenery reigns supreme; 47 of its 62 acres are covered with green spaces.
    After walking through the gates and having your identity checked by the security guard, guests simply drive along the small roads winding through the luxurious Mediterranean greenery, behind which you can make out the accommodation, leisure spaces and reception buildings. Everything has been designed to allow nature to take over and the architecture of the buildings blends perfectly with this verdant setting.
    Having covered the first few metres and arrived at the entrance with its small square dominated by a fountain, we are reminded of a high-end residential area with its small villas hidden back in the elaborate greenery, the maritime pines and cypress trees. After taking the road that runs along the Village gate lined with villas, guests arrive at the site facilities. Here you will obviously find the reception lobby, but also two restaurants and bars, a supermarket, as well as the main centres of activity at the Village. It's a bit like the nerve centre of the Village, the place that's "a bit more happening".
    The reception lobby, located in a lovely ochre-coloured building with the feel of a bourgeois private home, is vast, welcoming and bright. Other than the grand reception counter, here you will find little armchair islands and dark leather sofas where you can lounge about during summer in the cool haven this building provides. Once you cross this grand lobby and go through the door opposite the one you came in, a magnificent panorama opens up before you. Thanks to the view from high atop the terrace, it takes just one look to comprehend the breadth of the domain and to realise that the vegetation is not just a promise in the catalogue.
    One of the places you'll be sure to find your children during your stay is visible in the foreground: the large wave pool with its calmer pool (for the youngest children), a Jacuzzi and two water slides. This 1,600m² space has been designed like a beach and is lined with palm trees, tropical and Mediterranean plants and bamboo groves, and is the centre of aquatic activities with: a wave pool, two swimming pools and an equipped beach. This is where the fitness classes take place, in this setting between boulders, greenery and water, where exercise has never seemed so enjoyable!
    Next to the aquatic area, teens will find an area reserved just for them: the SpOt. Teens between the ages of 13 and 17 will rarely leave this area with an audio mixer, a dance floor, a chill out corner with a big screen, etc. And all supervised by a host who organises various evening activities.
    One of the two children's Club areas is also located here, as well as the four Thalgo spa treatment rooms sheltered by a wooden hut situated on the fringe of the 'forest'.
    Finally, this vast space made up of the aquatic corner and the reception area is also home to the two restaurants and bars. The 'Les Restanques' restaurant serves a themed buffet, but is only open in July and August. The 'La Calade' restaurant is open through the high season and serves regional dishes, especially fresh fish and sun-soaked vegetables, in a Provençal ambiance. In addition, it has a lovely outdoor raised terrace facing the Gulf of St. Tropez.
    Once guests leave the 'entertainment' area of the village, they find themselves quite simply immersed in nature. The various infrastructures present on the site are virtually invisible until the last moment as they are totally integrated into the natural surroundings. And yet there are many of them!
    Take a short stroll at the heart of the 62 acres of the village and you will discover the 700-seat theatre of greenery where shows, concerts and circus performances (with a fixed trapeze) are organised, and where the circus training courses also take place. Just a few steps away are the ping pong tables, the three tennis courts and the multi-sport pitch (football and basketball). A little farther on, you'll come across the beach volleyball courts, followed by the roller skating area, the football pitch and the children's clubs. As for the clubs, there is something for all ages: The Children's Club (ages 3-6), Kid's Club (ages 6-8), Junior's Club (ages 8-12), Pre-Teen's club (ages 12-15) and the Teen's Club (ages 15-18). These structures, combined with the fact that the whole domain is gated and permanently guarded, allow parents and children to enjoy their stay in complete freedom, where they are sure to find a activity to suite everyone.
    For the more meditative visitors, the stroll continues on a little farther around a small lake that looks like a Japanese painting. Between the reeds, the small wooden pavilion and the pontoons gliding across the water's surface, it is a perfectly idyllic setting and is sure to provide inspiration to those a gift for art.
