Whether admiring the mesmerising sea views from the terrace or making the most of the private access to the pretty beach below, La Madrague enjoys an incredible setting on the French Riviera, part of the much-loved seaside resort of Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer.
Step through the characterful courtyard into your holiday home and be amazed by the sight of the Mediterranean from your living-dining space and open-plan kitchen, with doors opening out to a large terrace facing the sea. A bright villa with contemporary interiors, there is a great sense of open space across the main floor with the perfect blend of modern style and rustic touches.
Sleeping up to six guests, choose between the two bedrooms upstairs, one with an especially romantic balcony facing the sea, or the third bedroom on the main floor with its own private shower room – both bathrooms feature impressive walk-in showers.
The pièce de résistance is surely the beautiful terrace where you can lounge and gaze at the sea, or perhaps the beach access – follow the steps down from the terrace to your own private door that opens out to the promenade and little beach below. As well as swimming in clear water, there are summer watersports here or wander a little further towards the traditional marina, home of a weekly Provençal market.
Then there’s Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer’s long sandy beach, just under a kilometre by foot or car, or venture towards the heart of the old town, a short drive away, for atmospheric cafes, summer festivities and charming weekly markets. Within a short drive, visit Sanary-sur-Mer for its historic waterfront, play golf with a view at Fregate Provence Golf & Country Club or head into the hills to discover some of the region’s wonderful vineyards.
Nature enthusiasts and keen scuba-divers should hop on a boat from nearby La Ciotat to île Verte whilst city-lovers will adore Toulon with its grand architecture and fascinating maritime heritage. For a true French Riviera experience, join the winding Route des Cretes, one of France’s most scenic coastal roads, and reach the gorgeous town of Cassis, the gateway to the magnificent Parc National des Calanques.

La Madrague enjoys a stunning setting above a picturesque small beach in Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer, on the French Riviera between Marseille and Toulon.
Around 10m above sea level in a residential area, you can walk down the property’s steps and through your own door to reach the promenade and pretty beach below, which can be busy in the summer months. As well as swimming in the clear sea, there is a selection of watersports to enjoy such as kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding and pedalo hire – usually open June to September. Wander along to the traditional marina just a little further and look out for colourful boats and fishermen as well as a little aquarium. Furthermore, a weekly Provençal market usually takes place by the port.
Following the coastal road accessed at the back of the villa, you can reach the far end of Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer’s main beach in under a kilometre (partial pavement en route). Along this stretch of sandy beach there is an abundance of summer restaurants as well as the main tourist office, 1.6km away. In the opposite direction, you may prefer to discover the coastline around Plage de la Rainette, an area ideal for snorkelling and coastal hikes with incredible views.
In the heart of old Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer, around 2.5km from the villa, stop off for a coffee on one of the café terraces of Place Portalis and soak up the musical ambience on Wednesday and Saturday summer evenings in the square. The Farmer’s market is a delight on a Thursday morning whilst the main market takes place on a Sunday morning – look out for other small markets and festivities dotted across the town and by the coast in the summer months.
Sanary-sur-Mer (15km) is also worthy of a visit during your stay with its historic harbour and picturesque waterfront whilst Cassis (21km) is such a charming place to stop off for lunch, also the gateway to the incredible Parc National des Calanques, best explored by boat or on foot. Reach Cassis via the famous Route des Cretes connecting Cassis and La Ciotat, arguably the most scenic coastal road in France.
This region is a paradise for guests seeking a range of outdoor activities, not only watersports across Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer and beyond, but also golf at the exceptional 18-hole course, Le Frégate, a number of wonderful walks and hikes, wine-tasting in the hinterland’s vineyards and a wealth of places to amuse younger families with waterparks, tree-top adventures and local playgrounds across the area.

The Provençal way of life is one that’s deeply tempting for anyone who’s been feeling the need to get away from it all. This is a place where the Mediterranean weather turns fields of corn and lavender into picture-perfect backdrops, where you can sip your locally bought wine and enjoy the landscapes before heading out and tackling them head-on with a range of great activities for families, groups of friends and adventurous foodies. Better yet, our range of villas in Provence and chateaux and holiday homes in the Côte d’Azur make the perfect base to explore this enchanting region!
The French Riviera resort of Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer is much-loved by families due to its wonderful beaches, summer watersports, beachside restaurants and an abundance of child-friendly activities close by.
The villa has direct access, via many steps, to a small picturesque beach with pebbles (and sand further along) as well as gorgeous clear water. A watersports centre, usually open June to September, offers sea-kayaking, pedalo hire and stand-up paddle boarding whilst a little further is the marina, home to traditional fishing boats and a weekly market in the height of the summer. The end of the town’s main sandy beach, Plages des Lecques, is just under 1km away.
You will find children’s playgrounds scattered across the town, including a small play area on the beach below the villa, in the old town itself and by Plages des Lecques.
The town’s Aqualand (3km) is a popular day out whilst tree-top adventures can be found near La Seyne-sur-Mer in La Forêt de Janas and in the Six Fours Les Plages area, both around half an hour away by car.
Boat rides nearby include a trip from La Ciotat to île Verte, a small island covered in trees and a paradise for nature lovers and scuba-diving enthusiasts, or drive to Cassis and take a boat tour of the incredible Parc National des Calanques.
