Pool Villa/House Modern Ideal for Kids Walk to Beach Laptop Friendly Workspace Parking Space On-Street Parking

Between Saint-Tropez and Hyères, only a short stroll from idyllic beaches and restaurants, this architect-designed villa on the French Riviera enjoys the most magnificent sea views. Sit out on a warm summer evening with an apéritif in hand and gaze out towards the Îles d'Hyères.

You can appreciate the vistas as soon as you walk into the top-level of the house with its two double en suite bedrooms both opening to the upper balcony overlooking the Mediterranean. The next level down is home to the stylish living space, modern kitchen and dining area, again leading out to a sea-facing balcony – such a scenic spot throughout the day, especially as the sky changes colour at night.

There is another double and a twin on this level, alongside a family shower room, whilst the fifth double bedroom can be found on the lower level near the swimming pool. All bedrooms are air-conditioned and have Egyptian cotton bed linen whilst furnishings throughout are classic and contemporary. Other great features include TV with English/French channels and an Amazon Firestick, a DVD player, books and games as well as a sound system.

The Mediterranean garden is beautiful with terraces so perfectly positioned for those 180 degree sea vistas. Dine al-fresco beneath the shade, relax by the poolside bar or watch fellow guests enjoy the swimming pool as you sit back in the outdoor lounge. There is also a traditional boules court on the lower level.  

Stroll down the winding lane to reach the coastal road which leads to a small handful of seasonal restaurants and a couple of gorgeous beaches, the nearest being a small and wild sandy bay with turquoise sea backed by rocks, reached via steps through the pine trees. Plage d'Aiguebelle is another picture-perfect place for swimming or sunbathing at one of the summer beachside restaurants.

The attractive seaside resort of Le Lavandou is only 5km away, loved for its authentic French Riviera charm, pretty fountains and more glorious beaches (especially loved by divers thanks to the clear water). Boat trips depart the marina towards the incredible Îles d'Hyères – a day trip to one of the islands is a must!

Elsewhere, venture along the coast to the pristine beaches and vineyards around La Croix Valmer, then continue to experience the glitz and glamour of Saint-Tropez and it’s iconic Plage de Pampelonne.

Closer to home, explore the medieval flower-filled lanes of Bormes-les-Mimosas, follow wonderful coastal and mountain hiking routes, hire bikes to cycle from beach to beach or just make the most of your stunning terraces facing the sea at your elegant Côte d’Azur holiday abode.

What you should know…

  • Please note that air-conditioning is featured in the bedrooms only.
  • In a beautiful setting with sea-views, guests need to be able to manage many steps (the main entrance is on the top level).
  • Indeed, if travelling with young children then supervision is needed across the balconies, steps and terraced grounds.
  • It is great to be able to walk down the winding road (no pavement) towards the beach and seasonal restaurants - do note it's uphill on the way back (the views make it worth it)!

With glorious sea views, Villa Belle Éclat is a short walk to a beautiful beach around 5km east of the picturesque French Riviera resort of Le Lavandou, located between Saint-Tropez and Hyères.

Fly into Toulon Hyères Airport, just over half an hour away (Nice and Marseille are both other options within a two hour drive), or arrive by TGV train into Toulon (45km) with connections onwards to Hyères. A car is recommended to be able to fully explore the region but there is a bus stop on the coastal road with buses towards Toulon or Saint-Tropez (do check seasonal timetables in advance).

You can walk down the hill to the coastal road where you will find a small handful of seasonal restaurants as well as a wild sandy beach with turquoise-coloured sea, reached via steps through the pine trees. Head there early if staying in the height of the summer – this is such an idyllic spot. A little further along, Plage d'Aiguebelle (1.5km) is another pretty beach which is easier to access and home to summer beachside restaurants with sun loungers to hire.

Le Lavandou (5km) is a much-loved French Riviera seaside resort with restaurants, shops and other glorious beaches. Look out for the Thursday morning Provençal market, soak up the charm of the old town, visit the many art galleries, admire the fishing boats and yachts swaying in the marina and partake in a range of seasonal watersports – this coastline is a paradise for keen snorkellers and diving enthusiasts.  

In the summer you can catch a boat to the wonderful Île de Porquerolles where you should hire bikes and cycle to your heart’s content passing olive groves, vineyards and eucalyptus trees to pristine beaches. Back on the mainland, keen walkers have a choice of hikes along the coast (Le Sentier des Douaniers) or through the Massif des Maures.  

The gorgeous village of Bormes-les-Mimosas (9km) is not to be missed with its medieval flower-filled lanes. Meanwhile, spend time in the family-friendly resort of Cavalaire-sur-Mer (15km), head to the vineyards of La Croix-Valmer (21km) and discover the beauty of the beaches and walking paths around Plage de Gigaro (23km).

The allure of Saint-Tropez (33km) also awaits, one of the France’s most famous destinations, as do the watersports and exclusive beach clubs of Pampelonne Beach (38km). Drive to picture-perfect Côte d’Azur villages such as Gassin, Ramatuelle and hilltop Grimaud in this captivating corner of the French Riviera.

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!

Perched on a hillside, you can walk down the winding lane (no pavement) to the coastal road where you can access the nearest beach – best for slightly older children as there are steps through the pine trees to access the beach. The beach is beautiful with clear sea for snorkelling. A little further along is Plage d'Aiguebelle, another pretty spot which is easier to access. Not to mention other glorious beaches in and around Le Lavandou.

The resort of Le Lavandou is home to tennis courts, mini-golf, beach volleyball, bike hire and lots of lovely walks for all abilities. Summer watersports across this part of the coastline and beyond include snorkelling, paddleboarding, boat hire, wake-boarding and more.

There are yet more fantastic beaches and family-friendly activities in Cavalaire-sur-Mer which has been awarded the 'Famille Plus' designation. The beaches and coastal walking path along the coastline near La Croix Valmer are also loved by families, as is Saint-Tropez’ iconic Plage de Pampelonne with its beach clubs and watersports.

There are so many lovely boat trips from nearby ports including excursions across to Île de Porquerolles, a must for cycling-loving families who should hire bikes to explore the gorgeous natural landscapes of the island.
