, VAR provence-cote-dazur FR


15 minutes from Toulon-Hyères airport, which can be used by private jets, and 70 minutes from Marseille airport.
10 minutes from the TGV train station, 5 minutes from the motorway and shops.


Built on the French Riviera, between Toulon and Hyères, this elegant, late 19th century villa is surrounded by 3 ha of private parklands with direct sea access.
Typical of the large properties built in the Napoleon III style by architect H. G. Tersling, this villa is in pristine condition and its dominant location provides a splendid view on all sides.

Its beautiful garden, a mixture of Victorian greatness and lushness, comprises a harmonious choice of plants. A wide, pink brick stairway leads down from the villa to the sea through flower-filled terracing with low, dry stone walls. Majestic palm trees, sweet-smelling pine trees and parterres of flowers surround the villa in cleverly organised confusion, exuding a peaceful and luxurious atmosphere. Spanish-style ornamental pools, one transformed into a swimming pool, are spread out to the east of the house.
A narrow creek that can be directly accessed via the gardens hides a rocky, fresh water cave and its peaceful shore makes it possible to take advantage of the sea at all times.

The villa and its gardens were completely renovated in 2004 by a French decorator who had bought the property in order to revive its “Belle époque” elegance and spirit. It has, consequently, become a prestigious holiday home once more.

The villa

This south-facing villa, spanning a surface area of approx. 1,900 m² over four floors, overlooks the terracing with its low, dry stone walls sloping down to the sea. All the windows feature semicircular arches and almost all those on the first floor open on to a balcony.
With its old-fashioned construction techniques and its high ceilings, the villa benefits from a natural insulation and has no need of air-conditioning on the ground or the first floor. The rooms remain cool in summer and are easy to heat in the winter.

Garden level
This level essentially comprises a vast kitchen for functions opening on to the garden and the summer dining rooms, a large back kitchen with numerous cupboards and miscellaneous cellars.
Ground floor
The entrance hall formed by a large room with marble columns could be used as a function room. It features the impressive stairway leading upstairs. It communicates with a library with panelled walls, opening into a conservatory with a large, rounded, small-paned window and a floor decorated with dainty, hand-painted, floral motifs. A south-facing lounge and dining room make it possible to take full advantage of the view. There is also a kitchen and a cloakroom.
First floor
This floor with its 5 m high ceilings comprises six bedrooms, (85 m², 58 m², 55 m², 52 m², 40 m² and 25 m²), 4 of which have balconies overlooking the sea, the ornamental pools or the famous Mont Faron. Each has a lobby, a lounge area and a bathroom decorated in accordance with the dominant theme chosen for each bedroom (travel, artistic period, tribute to an artist, etc.).
Second floor
This floor with its sloping ceilings comprises 4 air-conditioned bedrooms respectively including a shower, a bath, a dressing room and a shower, a dressing room and a bath as well as a small lounge. The mirror-covered, window walls provide optical illusions.

Our opinion

It is unusual to find such a large property in such a superb setting in such an irreproachable condition, knowing that it could, moreover, be sold furnished.
Completely surrounded by fencing, its location away from the main roads guarantees a change in scenery as well as tranquillity. This ideal setting also makes it possible to organise sumptuous functions out of sight of onlookers. Far from the hustle and bustle of the crowds, the singing of the exotic birds in the aviary is the only sound to be heard by its residents, excluding of course the lapping of the waves.
