For a taste of style and luxury in an architectural gem of a holiday home, look no further than Palais De L’Océan, tucked away next to the Mediterranean on the French Riviera between Hyères and Toulon.

Everything here is grand and beautiful from the welcoming palm tree salute and palatial hallway with marble staircase to the vast ornately decorated living areas, dining room and library all interspersed with seating areas, tables, sculptures and works of art. With spectacular views from many of the eleven gorgeous en suite bedrooms, you might well feel you have arrived in paradise.

You will feel warmly welcomed with a personal host, daily maid service as well as concierge on hand for any requests you may have. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are also served each day, accompanied by carefully selected regional wines, whilst still/sparkling water, juice and hot beverages are available throughout your time at this magnificent abode.

Find a tranquil spot across the vast terraced gardens for your morning coffee or take a summer dip in the heated swimming pool, surrounded by zen gardens and elegant ponds. Stroll down the many steps for a game of pétanque or continue down the paths and rocks, passing iconic pine trees so typical of this coastline, until you reach a creek and the azure-coloured sea. Boat trips can be arranged as well as a choice of watersports.

One of the local villages has shops and restaurants so stop for a drink and watch the sailing boats bobbing on the water or the kite-surfers who love this part of the coast. Hikers will enjoy the coastal path which passes through lush vegetation above rocky coves and sandy beaches. Take a day trip to Toulon or Hyères, hop on a ferry to one of the beautiful Îles d'Hyères or even head inland for some mountain scenery.

Palais De L’Océan is superbly positioned with stunning sea views between Toulon and Hyères in the Var region of southern France. It is tucked away at the end of tiny road just a short drive from a charming village with shops and restaurants.

At the end of your terraced garden, there is shared access (via paths/rocks/steps) to a small creek - it takes just over 10 minutes to reach. Water-based activities can be arranged via the domaine's own nautical centre.

Across this region there are coastal paths passing wild coves and sandy beaches, all kinds of water sports, golf, hiking and biking trails and ferries to the idyllic Îles d'Hyères. There are other pretty rocky coves and several sandy beaches only a short drive away including the vast shores of the Giens Peninsula.

Visit the lively Saturday Farmer’s market and gorgeous restaurants in characterful Hyères, call into the fine harbour town of Toulon or book a show at its stunning amphitheatre, Châteauvallon. For a change of scene and mountain views, head inland to the pink roofed village of Le Revest-les-Eaux.

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!
