Overview

About the property

800 m from surfer's paradise

The year 1912 Victorian House apartment is fully refurbished with all modern comforts by its Scandinavian owner and the interior has been sourced from the USA and EU. The garden vegetation is mature, rich and inspired by its Mediterranean setting on the ocean road. The house comes with private access to a small beach(stone) across the road (currently inaccessible of subsidence of the access path) and the public beaches (sand) start 300 m down the road next to kite+windsurfers paradise, idyllic harbors, the nature resort Maures, wrecks sunken next to Porquerolles for the experienced diver, golf clubs on all levels within 1hr drive and with access to private tennis courts in walking distance. It is 35 min drive from dining in St Tropez, 7 min drive to restaurants and bars in Hyeres. It is not the place for people who seek a tranquil countryside holiday, however, ideal for young couples (with or w/o children) who seek an active water sport or sun worshiper holiday on the popular and beautiful beaches of Hyeres.

Charming house with tasteful setting

  • 5 of 5

We have spent three summer holidays with grandparents and children in this place and plan to come back. Having rented a variety of summer homes in France, Italy and Spain, we rarely found a house with such a tasteful setting at a comparable price.

The mixture of old architecture and new design pieces is something special and the landlady was quick to take care of any issues arising with the older items.

The next beach is just a few minutes by bike or on foot. When we did not spend our time there, the well-kept garden was a nice playground for the children. Thanks to the old trees surrounding it, the dining table just outside the kitchen is a comfortable place to be at any time of the day and long into the evening.

Vraiment agréable!

Stunning apartment in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We just had a lovely weekend stay in Hyeres enjoying long walks on the beach and trips to Porquerolles. Easy to get around. I saw one of the previous comments, so just wanted to mention we found the property in great condition and everything was as described and in excellent order. Charming house and lush garden. Highly recommended.

Elegant yet cosy retreat with private beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. Chic scandi minimalism but with a French twist in a gorgeous Victorian house. The apartment takes up the ground floor of this gorgeous building and has a lovely garden with shady terrace for long lazy lunches. Lovely private shared beach across the road down steep steps well worth the effort. Gorgeous restaurant towards hyeres just within walking distance. No shops nearby so if you get the late flight to hyeres make sure you bring tea and coffee and stop at a supermarket in hyeres to buy milk and wine or you are in for a hungry and thirsty night! Everything else provided including beach towels. We had the best time, visiting porquerolles and the islands and generally soaking in French life. Recommend the market in carquirannes on Thursdays (Centre ville) and the marches en puces ( flea market) on the way to giens on Sundays.

Loved our stay- we will be back (but with anti-mosquito cream next time- we are all a bit lumpy!)

Thanks so much- we loved it.

Superb garden house close Hyeres

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this house three times. It is probably the nicest house that you can rent around Hyeres and has the best interior design anywhere in this part of France... The rooms are modern, clean and supplied with everything you'll need, trust me!

Here are the strong points:

– nice garden with real grass!

– trees and shrubs make the garden feel like a mini-park

– the furnishing and decoration is very tasteful. Like a design hotel – in a good way

– romantic terrace for outdoors meals, conveniently located close to the kitchen

– dishwasher, fireplace, good coffee machine, flatscreen television, etc

– you can play tennis nearby

– nice beaches are easily reached by car or by bike

– the location within a real (upscale) neighborhood is very pleasant

– Jorgen, who is in charge is really wonderful

Conclusion:

The place is strongly recommend for people who want to enjoy a private and joyful time with their family or friends – in a very tasteful setting.

Beautiful house - Pros and Cons

  • 3 of 5

Spent nice 2 weeks in Hyeres. A good place to explore the Cote Azure.

The Pros:The house and the garden are very nice and we had a lot of fun. The owners are very friendly and helpful.

The Cons: The private beach near the house is of no use at all, very steep iron stairs and a not cleaned gravel-beach. Theres a road next to the house with quite a bit of noise, so the garden is not very useful in daytime; the evenings are quiet.

There are millions of ants around the house, one night we were flooded with ants that came through a micro-hole in the wall. Poison is essential.

Owner's Response: We are greatful for the review which invites to some supplementary information regarding the cons that we hope the readers find useful: Hyeres is a very appreciated green nature and water sports area. There are not less, not more ants in the ground, fish in the water and birds in sky than anywhere else along the parts of the French Riviera that remains fairly green and beautiful. The locals, including us, know how to take preventive measures so that nature does not enter the houses and this is generally never an issue. No need to bring anything other than your sunscreen and swimsuit. We stress in our advert that it's a popular beach destination with what it implies of traffic during the day and that if you more so prefer the quiet country side, you should not go to our place. Popular beach destinations are certainly also useful during the day by their pure nature and we have enjoyed many good lunches in the shades of the trees on the private terrace during the day in between our trips to the beach. One of our favorite holiday pastimes in Hyeres is to enjoy the privacy, quietness and the beautiful view over Presque'Ile Giens with a nice glass of cold white wine on one of the few private beaches on the French Riviera. It is indeed a small stone beach after a descend in front of the house which is never easy to walk on bare feet or to bathe from. I go to the closest public sand beach about 300 meters left of the house for that. Fortunately, the 2 different options are available within a short walking distance.
