Why Bob or Beatrice chose Sanary-sur-Mer
The appartment provides a comfortable retreat with great amenities close by while having easy access to many of the highlights of Provence including Marseilles, the Carmargue, Aix en Provence, St Tropez. This is a very French resort, away from the riviera, less congested, but still very lively and interesting.
What makes this apartment unique
Good beaches.,wartersports, walking, hiking, bike riding, horse riding are all in easy reach. The vineyards, lavender fields, perched villages are stunning and the oppotunity to join locals at their regular fétes is great too.
Guestbook comments from the manager
The apartment is in a very quiet, residential area just a ten or twelve minute walk from the beach. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony as the sun went down - nice and
quiet. The apartment is well equipped and comfortable, especially the king size bed.
We liked the beaches at Le Brusc and Portissol. It was very windy for a couple of days and watching the windsurfers at the beach closest to the apartment was very
entertaining. Wednesday market in Sanary is huge and well worth a visit.
