Cavalaire Sur Mer

Cavalaire sur Mer is situated on a stretch of the Mediterranean coast that receives more sunshine than anywhere in France, more than 3,000 hours a year! The area has tall dark pines, oaks and eucalyptus trees.

Only 10-15 minutes’ walk to the town with interesting shops, plenty of excellent restaurants in the marina and in town , 4 km of white sandy beaches and a large marina. There is a secluded sandy beach (Bonporteau), which is 15 minute walk from our apartment.

Ideal for beach holidays, water sports, diving, deep fishing walking, cycling, tennis, golf, and horse riding. There is an excellent scenic cycle route through the Corniche des Maures nearby – heading west along the coast out of Cavalaire. It follows the old railway line so is mostly flat and nearly all off road – ideal for families. and lovely coastal walks along the famous Corniche des Maures just 15 minutes’ walk from our apartment.-or for further a field ( see the books and maps in the apartment) Golf at St Raphaels and Grimaud.

Travel to Cavalaire sur Mer

It is just 45 minutes’ drive from the airport in Hyeres (40km) and less than 2 hours from Nice (70 km) and from Marseille. Nearest railway station is either St Raphael (approx 30 kms) or Toulon ( approx 60 km) Trains from London St Pancreas International (Eurostar & TGV) goes direct to Marseille or via Paris or Lille either to Toulon , Marseille or to St Raphael. There is a direct bus to Cavalaire from Toulon ( Route St Tropez).

The Gulf de St. Tropez and the Iles d'Or

Several larger, well-known beach resorts are close-by and can be reached easily by local bus. These include St Tropez (17km), Ste Maxime (21km) and Le Lavandou (20km). The recently-developed marina towns of Port-Grimaud (15km) and Cogolin (16km) are now major tourist destinations. Catch the ferry from Cavalaire to visit the famous 'îles d'Or': the Levant islands, Porquerolles and Port Cros. These small islands are protected National Parks which have something for everyone: sandy beaches, signed paths and trails, extraordinarily clear waters with a signposted underwater 'nature' trail and ancient forts.

The Var region

Is famous for its vineyards and many within easy reach of Cavalaire are open to visitors. Take note of those that you would like to visit as you pass them on the roads into Cavalaire! Exploring inland, the hills, valleys, vineyards and pine forests of the Alpes de Haute Provence provides varied and fascinating destinations. Visiting the old villages perched high in the mountains are a great way to cool down on a summer evening. For example Grimaud or Gassin.

Beautifully situated appartement with stunning views and gorgeous pool

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is a home from home and more. It is equipped with everything you could possibly possibly need for your holiday. Jane, the owner, provides so much helpful information about the apartment and all the local amenities prior to your stay. She also provides 'treats' to welcome you, a really kind and personal touch we thought. The apartment is very spacious with lots of period features and an interesting history. There is a beautiful staircase up to the apartment from the entrance hall. I would suggest that because it is on the first floor, it may not be suitable for a person who has mobility difficulties. However as it is on the first floor, the views are fabulous from the large balcony where we had breakfast and then a glass of wine in the evening as the sun set....wish we were there now!

Amazing Balcony Views

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing pool/beach and walking holiday and stayed in this lovely well equipped apartment. The apt was very clean we arrived with sparkling wine and nibbles and some milk for tea or coffee.

The apt is in a quiet location but is within 10 mins walk to the town and beaches. There is a large swimming pool which we used every day. We hired a car, but there are lots of buses which go to many places including St Tropez, which we went for the market and for lunch. We always came back to the balcony though for dinner and for a glass of cold rose in the evening. The supermarket -Carrefour- sells everything you would need and the bread and pasty shops sell lovely cakes and pastries as well as the baguette. Although we did go out for Moules and frites, which are excellent here.

The owner Jane answered all my questions and was extremely helpful.

We will definitely come next year and would recommend the apt to anybody- families or couples or groups of friends

V.comfy apartment in notable building & setting

  • 4 of 5

With straightforward access from Nice airport our four UK based adults had a wonderful stay enjoying the crisp blue skies of late February. Starting our days with breakfast on the balcony overlooking the swimming pool to cocktails in the same spot as the sun started to set. In the meantime our days included walks along the coast and inland hills enjoying the South of France's ambience, cuisine and hospitality!

Excellent location,amazing balcony views

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday at this property. The owner Jane was very helpful and the apartment was equipped with everything you could need. The nearest beach is within walking distance,but we chose to visit a quieter one just 10 minutes drive away. Jane even provides beach chairs and pool toys. The pool was rarely busy although it is shared by about 10 apartments. We also had fun at Aqualand water park and visiting St Tropez. The only thing missing was a bigger freezer to fit all the ice cream in ,for all those relaxing afternoons on the balcony gazing at the beautiful sea view.

Owner's Response: I am delighted that you had a very good holiday at Castel Haussmann. The pool is shared by 4 apartments with in the main house, and approximately 6 small houses. The small houses are owned by older people who use the pool infrequently. We have 2 fridges with frozen compartments which should be enough for ice- creams in the afternoons
