A House with history. After 1933, Sanary-sur-Mer developed into a escaping point for many European artists. For the writers Sanary was also a place to work in peace. The German writer and journalist Sibylle Bedford belonging to the friends group around the Mann Family, née von Schönebeck, lived in this house until 1940. This is testified by the plaque that adorns the house facade.

A true oasis at arm's length from the city center at the Harbor, Theatre, Cinema and the beach of Sanary-sur-Mer, one of the most typical harbor towns in the south of France.

About LiveAzur Immobilier Karyn Vermast Bissuel

I rent my own properties since 2004 (mainly on Homeaway) and opened a Real Estate Agency "Liveazur Immobilier" in 2015 to rent out other owners properties and take care of holidaymakers from various parts of the world.

Why LiveAzur Immobilier Karyn Vermast Bissuel chose Sanary-sur-Mer

I helped the new owners of Villa "Carpe Diem" to buy this beautiful house and they naturally asked me to take care of it ... It's a great pleasure and honour for me to take care of this very beautiful house from the twenties renovated with a lot of taste by a great architect.

What makes this villa unique

Successful renovation of a vintage house (1920), beautiful heated pool, very cosy, absolute comfort and quietness 2 steps from the city center, the harbour and the beach.

Superb location near a beautiful town

  • 5 of 5

Warmly welcomed by Karyn! Walk to the harbour, restaurants etc. Beach about 15 mins walk so "two steps" shouldn't be taken literally! Sanary sur Mer is a beautiful small town with a lovely, classy night time market.

Amazing holiday destination

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from a weeks holiday in this wonderful property, the photos do not do it justice. The real estate agent Karyn was so helpful, even booked us dinner the first night we were there. The property has everything you could ask for and the pool was fabulous.

The property does have a steep glass spiral staircase so if travelling with children you may need to ask for a safety gate, but there is a bedroom on the main floor, the pool is also unfenced, and a car is essential.

This was one of our best beach holidays ever and we will definitely be returning to this spot in the very near future.

Great spot, Sanary-Sur-Mer is a charming little village with a great market, We frequented a local beach club MANTRA (Plage du Lido Sanary) which had a stunning beach and a very impressive Thai Menu.

Thank you again to Karyn and also the owners for providing a beautiful property

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your nice review and feedback about your holiday experience. Holidays are made of a good location, comfortable housing, extensive leisure, multiple excursions and last but not least about the encounters you make. I try my best to make the holidaymakers feel at home. The owners have the same spirit when decorating the house. Sanary is a great location. The region is full of leisure and excursion opportunities. All ingredients are there ! We hope to welcome you again soon !

Très belle maison, très bien équipé, calme, beau jardin, Belle piscine, à proximité du port

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons vraiment apprécié l'accueil que nous avons eu , la très belle maison très bien équipée non loin du port, des plages et des magasins. Nous avons bien profité du calme qui régnait dans le jardin et avons bien profité de la piscine chauffée. Pour nous tous cela a été un excellent souvenir et voudrions revenir dès que possible. Merci !
