A LOVELY VILLA WITH PRIVATE HEATED POOL. JUST 100M FROM THE SEA. NO NEED FOR CAR

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday villa in Tamaris-sur-Mer - Tamaris sur Mer

6 bedrooms. 5 bathrooms. Sleeps up to 12. 8x4m Pool. See link to website below.

The house was built in 1910 in a traditional French style but with a hint of the Ottoman.

Michel Pacha was Frenchman who made his fortune in Istanbul, designing the port there. He returned to France and built Tamaris, a resort for well to do Parisians looking for a holiday home beside the sea. His houses are of different designs, some large, some small. Ours is one of his later houses.

The house is 100m from the sea. You can swim from the end of the road or walk down the road to the fantastic long stretch of sandy beach, lots of cafes and restaurants and boat,kyak and windsurf hire. Churros, frites and sandwich places if you just wish for a snack and beds to rent if wanted. There is a lovely park here with summer holiday local entertainment on the bandstand, and a fairground for children up to the age of 10. Tourist information is also here. In August there is a night market every night with local Artisan products etc..

At the end of the our road is a passenger ferry (5 minutes walk from house) that takes you to the centre of Toulon or to the local resorts of Les Sablettes (5 minutes) or St Mandrier sur Mer in 20 minutes. Toulon is famous not only for its rugby team but also for its opera house and cultural attractions. You can tour the Naval port, go on the little white tourist train with a commentary about the sites, shop in the many clothing shops, go to daily food markets or visit art galleries. These are all walkable from the ferry within 5 minutes walk. You can also walk to Toulon train station in 10 minutes with trains to Cannes, Monaco,Nice one way and Marseille the other.

Behind the house one can walk up the hill to Napolean's fort or walk along the coast 10 minutes to Fort Balaghar.

This part of Provence is not like Nice and Cannes - it is much quieter and more family oriented. A bit like Cornwall or Devon in the sun - which is why we love it!

NEW for 2013- Refurbished with new kitchen, opening onto terrace and pool. American fridge freezer, double oven, heated plate drawer, ceramic hob and dishwasher opening onto the lovely terrace with plenty of seating for 12 to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner . The terrace has views out to sea. Lovely garden just below pool area with palm tress and a lawn. Also 4 new bathrooms/shower rooms all completed to a high standard with rainfall and hand-held showers in each. The house has also been redecorated.

This opens onto the terrace eating area and pool. There is a separate sitting room with a games cupboard and television with Freeview and DVD player. There is free WIFI too. There is a new downstairs toilet with granite wash stand. The first floor has 3 spacious double bedrooms, Bedroom 1 with kingsize bed, 2 sets of double doors leading onto a balcony with spectacular views to sea and a table and 2 chairs. there is a very large and stunning ensuite bathroom, double basins in granite wash stand, large shower with rain shower and hand held shower head option, toilet and freestanding oval bath. Bedroom 2 has option of 2 single beds or one large super kingsize as these beds can be bolted together. Another lovely balcony, 2 chairs and table and view out to sea. A beautiful ensuite shower room with toilet. Bedroom 3 has 2 single beds and ensuite shower room and toilet.

Bedroom 5 has 2 single beds, a balcony overlooking the pool and a lovely new bathroom with large wash stand and shower and toilet. Bedroom 6 is the smallest room with 2 velux windows and 2 single beds, small but light and cheerful!

You can park your car at the back of the house and off load your shopping easily as there is an entrance to the kitchen from here. The terrace has a new table tennis table, great for evening entertainment whilst waiting for the BBQ to be ready!

A family of five - three teenage children - living in Surrey.

we enjoy having our family and friends joining us as the house is so spacious.

Mrs Elliott purchased this villa in 2010

We love the house as it is a beautiful, spacious period house right next to the sea with views across the bay. This part of Provence is for the French, unknown by many holidaymakers and is much nicer (in our biased view!) than busy, built up Cannes, Nice, St Tropez and so on. We have always loved this area and my parents have been coming to this part of Provence since the 1950s - lovely quiet bays and pretty local towns (Bandol, Sanary & St Mandrier in particular)

The photo is of us with family friends eating at the little restaurant La Tama, just 200m away overlooking the sea. Very informal but lovely food - mussels from the Tamaris mussel beds and sea bass from the bay.

Spectacular views, sea front location and beautiful spacious 1910 Michel Pacha house- full of History. No need for a car, lovely little ferry from bottom of road, restaurants and beach walkable, lovely to have a pool too, best of everything!

Tamaris is in the Var region of Provence. Toulon is within 40 minutes drive and Marseilles is one hour away; both have airports used by British Airways, city-jet, Easy-jet and Ryanair.

St Tropez is about an hour and a half away. Nice and Cannes are just under 2 hours away. Monaco and the Italian border are just over 2 hours away. Further afield, we are 4 hours from the Spanish Border. All these places can be reached by train from Toulon, a lovely coastal easy journey.

Nearby: A 15 mins walk/5 min cycle from the sandy beach and seaside resort of Les Sablettes and a few minutes drive takes you to La Seyne sur Mer. Or take the ferry to Toulon, Les Sablettes or La Seyne sur Mer - it costs 83p (1 Euro) and goes from the end of our road.

20 minutes away is the lovely fishing port of Sanary-Sur-Mer. Bandol is also nearby, 25 minutes drive.

Tamaris is a quiet little resort but with wonderful access to beaches, villages, walking and boating but is also only 20 minutes from Toulon.

Our villa is just 100m from the sea - climb over the low sea wall and jump in! A little marina is 200m away.
