About the property

Terraced property in Miramar, Theoule sur Mer, Cote D'Azur, France - Overlooking The Sea And Esterel Mountains, Use Of Pool

A Provence style property situated in the quiet residence of Mas de la Mer, close to the village of Théoule sur Mer, occupying arguably the best position of all. Added to that, the rare two-storey configuration offers twice the the view!

Both the terrace and the balcony share the most spectacular vista across the bay of La Figueirette and to the foothills of the Estérel Mountains. A few minutes walk down the hill brings you to the beaches, which are safe, sandy and ideal for families. The bars and restaurants provide welcome shade and a view of the sunshine glistening on the calm waters.

For those with the energy, a short walk up the hill behind the property takes you into the Estérel National Park where you can explore the mountains along the many winding footpaths.

This stretch of coastline is renowned for its natural beauty and distinctive rose coloured rocks. But perhaps the most treasured asset, for locals and visitors alike, is the peace and tranquility of this unspoilt area.

About hilary marchant

The owners have been visiting the South of France for many years and love this quiet area with it's beautiful views. It's a great place to relax and there are many good restaurants nearby. The climate is ideal throughout the year and there are many interesting places to visit including art galleries, museums and gardens. It is not far from Monaco and a visit to the Historic Grand Prix is very exciting.

But the best part is just to relax on the terrace with a glass of wine and enjoy the view!

hilary marchant purchased this villa in 2006

Why hilary marchant chose Cannes - Grasse - Antibes

Both my wife and I have been visiting this area since the early 1960's. We chose our villa in the Esterel as it is in one of the most undeveloped areas on this coast line and we spend the out-of-season weeks here. There are many interesting places to discover and the winter sun is a great attraction.

What makes this villa unique

In addition to the fabulous location, the peace and tranquility of Miramar has been achieved by keeping cars out. This means that to reach our little ‘oasis’ you have to carry your bags a short distance along a winding path through very pleasant, semi-tropical gardens. It’s a small price to pay for the opportunity of sitting out on a warm evening listening to cicadas conversing rather than cars coming and going.

The villa has the rare benefit of being on two floors, both providing glorious sea views. These are especially appealing at night when the lights from houses across the bay glint under the starry sky.

The swimming pool is reserved exclusively for residents and is just a short winding walk away, and there are occasions when you may have it to yourself!
