A literal stone’s throw from the Mediterranean, this characterful French Riviera home enjoys the most magnificent sea views from its swimming pool and terrace. This almost sea-front abode has direct access to this region’s famous coastal walking path, Le Sentier du Littoral, and cove below.

Once the home of a highly-regarded Rugby coach and former player, guests can expect an abundance of French charm and authenticity alongside contemporary touches. The interiors have been simply yet thoughtfully furnished with four pretty bedrooms (two with air-conditioning) and three bathrooms in the main house alongside two separate studio-style bedrooms sat around a pretty terrace, allowing Villa De La Baie to sleep up to 12 guests.

Sit back in the attractive lounge and open the French windows out to the stone terrace overlooking the sea. Prepare your breakfast in the modern and spacious kitchen-diner and enjoy it in peace in the summer room or beneath the shade of the fig tree. The wisteria-clad dining terrace is an idyllic spot for leisurely al-fresco meals with views of the bay. Not forgetting the long swimming pool with its decked terracing, sun loungers and yet more beautiful scenery.

The Mediterranean garden is filled with citrus, olive and fig trees whilst pines lean over the terraces towards the sea, such a typical sight along this coastline. A little gate allows direct access to the much-loved coastal walking path and a rocky cove below for swimming in the sea.

You can walk just 400m to a popular summer restaurant right by the sea serving catch of the day for lunch. In this tiny former fishing village you will also find a pretty beach for snorkelling.

It is lovely being just 2.5km from Toulon’s charming Mourillon neighbourhood with its restaurants, daily market, blue-flag beach and summer activities including watersports. Take time to visit the maritime city of Toulon itself and experience a boat tour of the grand harbour, then admire the glorious coastal views from Mont Faron reached via cable car.

In the other direction is the pretty port of Carqueiranne and the windsurfing beaches of the Giens peninsula as well as ferries from La Tour Fondue to the very beautiful Île de Porquerolles.

You could even venture as far as Saint-Tropez and its iconic Plage de Pampelonne, or head west to Cassis with its pretty fishermen cottages, vineyards and Parc national des Calanques hiking trails. Return to your sea-facing terrace for a glass of Cassis white wine as you listen out to the sea lapping over the rocks below you in this idyllic corner of the French Riviera.

Set in its Mediterranean gardens perched above the sea, this is truly a breathtaking setting only 5km from the heart of Toulon. Fly into Toulon Hyères Airport (18km) or you may prefer Marseille Provence Airport (95km), just over an hour away by car. Meanwhile, if arriving by train, Gare de Toulon (5.5km) has TGV arrivals from Paris (Paris to Toulon takes just under 4 hours by fast-speed train).

Between the sea and the house (with direct access from the grounds) is the much-loved coastal walking trail, Le Sentier du Littoral, and a small rocky cove below via steps (around 30m on foot). In the other direction you can stroll around 400m to a popular seafront restaurant in a tiny former fishing village. Check opening times/dates in advance - in the summer it is usually open daily for lunch as well as Friday/Saturday evenings.

Once Toulon’s fishing neighbourhood, Mourillon is around 2.5km by car (or experienced walkers can follow the coastal hiking trail). Here you will find inviting restaurants, cafes, shops, a daily market (except Mondays) and a blue-flag sandy beach with seasonal watersports and other summer activities. This is an especially lovely place for families with its summer seaside ambience.

Food-lovers should visit the maritime city of Toulon (5km) with its daily morning market, gourmet food hall and great choice of restaurants. Visit the city’s museums, explore the harbour by boat, admire Toulon’s charming old town and take the cable car to the top of Mont Faron for fantastic views of the city and its coastline.

In the other direction is the pretty port of Carqueiranne (10.5km), the windsurfing beaches and bird-watching of the Giens peninsula and the charming French town of Hyères (20km). Another wonderful day out is the idyllic island, Île de Porquerolles, reached via ferry from La Tour Fondue or Toulon – hire bikes on the island to discover the gorgeous natural landscapes and beaches.

A little further afield, spend the day soaking up the glamour of Saint-Tropez (69km), dine in an exclusive beach club at Plage de Pampelonne (73km) or try the wines of La Croix Valmer (66km), an area also known for its pristine beaches and coastal walking.

Wine enthusiasts should also try the wines of Bandol (25km) or venture to the vineyards near Cassis (52km), a picture-perfect fishing village on the edge of the Parc National des Calanques, a paradise for keen hikers.

Region

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!

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages

Families with older children who are keen walkers will appreciate having direct access to the coastal hiking trail, Le Sentier du Littoral, and rocky cove below.

The coastal hiking trail eventually leads to Mourillon (2.5km) just outside Toulon or you may prefer the short drive. This city neighbourhood is loved for its blue-flag sandy beach, play areas, water-based activities and summer amusements including mini-golf and basketball courts.

If visiting Toulon, take a boat trip around the harbour, tour the city via the little tourist road train and enjoy the cable car that takes you up to Mont Faron for views of the city and coastline.

There are plenty more beaches to enjoy either side of Toulon from the glorious bays around Six-Fours-Les-Plages, Sanary-sur-Mer and Bandol to the windsurfing coastline along the Giens Peninsula.

Another popular day out is the Île de Porquerolles where you can hire bikes to explore the beautiful landscapes and Caribbean-style beaches. Arrive by ferry from La Tour Fondue or Toulon.

Elsewhere, enjoy the forest activities of La Foret des 4 Monde in the Janas Forest and look out for a wealth of different things to do around Circuit Paul Ricard with its tree-top adventure centre, go-karting opportunities and X-trem Park.
