Theoule-sur-Mer (Miramar) condo description

Building sits directly on a SANDY QUIET beach. Best beach in the Riviera! Beachfront Apartment in the quaint village of Theoule at the foot of the red rocks and forest of Esterel, nestled between Cannes (15 minutes) and Mandelieu (10 minutes), (40 km from Nice airport).

Strict urban controls have maintained the traditional charm of what was once a fishing village. Wake up to sun rising over the water and take an early morning swim with just yourself and the sea birds. The beach right outside our Apartment is sandy with clean water, a floating dock for swimmers, and the occasional small sailboat from the nearby sailing club.

In the evening, enjoy a quiet stroll along the Promenade de la Darse, a paved pedestrian walkway that follows the Riviera Coast. This is our treasured Vacation Home; we regret no children or pets are allowed. Minimum stay is 7 nights, 14 nights in August.

Details of the Apartment: New building in Mediterranean red stucco style. The apartment comfortably sleeps 4, with 2 beds in bedroom and a generous sofa bed in the living room, which is equipped with new TV and DVD player. Both the living room and bedroom open onto a large terrace, 3 floors directly above the beach. Enjoy an afternoon nap on the Terrace in oversized lounge chairs or an evening meal around the teak dining table that can expand to seat up to 6 persons.

Master bath has a large tub and shower as well as washer/dryer for laundry. Small kitchen is fully-equipped. Attractive inside Dining room table seats 6. Entrance hall has a small WC for guests. Two parking spaces in garage. Locked storage area for beach equipment at beach level.

Plenty of restaurants and things to do- water sports, forest trails and seaside paved walking trail, mountain biking, nearby golfing, sea cures, lavender fields and perfumeries, museums, aquarium, Provence artisans.

Walk or mountain bike the many kilometers of footpaths and nature trails in the nearby Esterel Hills while enjoying the sandy beaches of Theoule. Many seaside restaurants offer a variety of casual and formal dining experiences at the water’s edge or over the water with a dock full of linen tables! There are 9 hotel restaurants and 21 restaurants in Theoule.

Sometimes referred to as La Ville d Ecriture for its yearly Writing & Arts Festival in June, Theoule’s town hall boasts the largest collection of inkpots of any town in Europe! One enters the village along the curved coastal road lined with 'larger than life' neo-modern sculptures, including Femme Sortant de L Eau, Woman emerging from water and 'Naissance de la Femme', Birth of a Woman. There is also the impressive 'Croix de Lorraine', a symbol of the disembarquement of allied troops in 1944 and a yearly celebration of this event.

Sports and other Activities:
There are many activities for land and sea lovers. At our apartment side beach, you’ll find beach volley ball and boccia ball courts, 2 sailing clubs, windsurfing, scuba diving, and nearby excursions to sea water cures. Hike in the scrub or in the forest of cork oaks and maritime pines.

Guest comments:
We're back & had a wonderful time. Theoule Sur Mer is a very special spot, you're right - a nicely hidden treasure. Theoule is close enough to Cannes restaurants & trendy Cote D'Azur nightlife, travel a few miles inland to the charming perched villages or just the perfect place to sit back, relax & enjoy scenic surroundings. Your apartment is quite lovely too, welcoming and in a great position right on the beach. Thanks again, we'd love to go back another time. JP Vancouver, Canada

A very comfortable apartment in a great location, right on the beach. We enjoyed Theoule so much we went house shopping there ourselves! -SueAnn, Switzerland

A perfect holiday place. Superbly situated apartment right beside the beach but in a small town setting - with good restaurants and other facilities in easy walking distance. If you're looking for a relaxing time in really nice surroundings, then look no further.
Jim Hunter, Inverness-shire, Scotland

Comfortable flat with amazing view, delightful, quiet village with friendly people, lighthearted atmosphere, good restaurants, perfect beach right outside the door, places of historical interest, art collections etc. within easy reach.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: I have two beautiful daughters which you see in some of the photos. We go to Theoule each year, it is my retreat where I recover from the consumer culture of Southern California. I enjoy making it available to others and am gratified by their heartfelt appreciation of it. I also donate several weeks a year for charities. I just opened an optometry practice in Yorba Linda California to provide leading edge eye care. I trained as a scientist in Physiological Optics -PhD from UC Berkeley and have my optometry degree from there as well. I have worked as a consultant for industry developing new ophthalmic devices or therapies and help them design trials to insure viability and safety and ultimately approval by the FDA.

                  Why the Owner Chose Theoule-sur-Mer (Miramar):
                  Best beach in the Riviera! We rented a place over the internet in Nice and it was awful...the beaches were rocky and we spent most of our vacation looking for a place to stay and for a sandy beach. When I found Theoule I looked up at the relatively new apartment building and wondered if there might be an apartment to buy. I asked a neighbor and they told me one just opened which is very rare and that it was not yet on the market. I asked around for the realtor and was directed from one seaside bar to the next until someone pointed him out on his balcony. I signed the papers the next day, an hour before flying back to the States. My grandmother and great aunt came to America from France when they were young girls. My love for them imbued me with a love for France, and now I have my little place in Theoule.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  I spend alot of time just enjoying our beach. Its quiet and quaint and the water is absolutely perfect. I swim a mile each day then eat all sorts of fattening food. I read a little in French, alot in English and enjoy the patter of the locals talking. I'll take a few trips to special places, return to ones I love, see a new art exhibit, decorate the apartment, shop for good wine good food and decorations for my home in the States. The apartment is very centrally located allowing one to explore the best the Riviera/ Cote D'azur has to offer in short one to two hour day trips...many are less than 30 minutes away. No matter how long a vacation I take I always wish I had more time.
