About Lynn Marran
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.
Lynn Marran purchased this Condo in 2004
Why Lynn Marran chose Théoule-sur-Mer
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.
What makes this Condo unique
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.

The Stuff Dreams Are Made Of....
THIS was exactly what I wanted to experience in the French Riviera - a place On the Beach, with a balcony, nearby restaurants and in a beautiful coastal town. The apartment was perfect - with 1 1/2 baths, a living area, free wi-fi, a washer and a full kitchen.... along with a table and chairs on the balcony, where we spent most of our time. It was quiet, peaceful and the waves lapping lulled us to sleep each night. I will be back! Thank you, Lynn for an amazing stay!
Very nice place to stay
We (2 Adults, 2 teen boys) had a wonderful time in Theoule.
Everything was fine.
Elegant Beachfront Apartment
We have been renting apartments in Théoule-Sur-Mer for twenty years, and this is the best by far. The locatiion is perfect, and the view from the terrace, of the sea, beach, and all of the activities made it the perfect hang out, as well as convenient to all of the locat attractions and restaurants. We could watch the Bocce tournament from the terrace, or stroll down to the docks, and catch the Fishing Boat Jousting, (think medieval knights jousting, but from Gondolas, a real hoot!) and stop by Chez Philippe on the way back for dinner, all without ever getting in the car. The apartment is beautifully appointed, and the entry and exit contacts gracious, informative, and helpful. We hope to repeat our visit in 2016, to our favorite place in the South of France. We spent more time in the vicinity, and discovered the wonderful Le Coup de Fourchette, as well as trying other restaurants we had never visited on previous trips. Other years, we've driven into Italy for lunch, but this time we were more content to explore lovely Théoule-Sur-Mer more, from this great apartment.
Amazing apartment, great location
We had a brilliant week here, perfect location and lovely homely apartment. Decorated in traditional french style, felt more at home than in another hotel room with no personality. Great to be able to cook the odd meal in between excessive visits to the local restaurants. Lovely to sit on the balcony and watch the world go by, really lovely and very relaxing. Really valued the private parking, great to not have to worry about the car for the week.
Great Location but apartment getting run-down
The apartment is in a fabulous location and Christine who met us was friendly and helpful. However, the apartment's furniture needs to be updated as it is getting tired and the sofa is particularly uncomfortable. Everything else terrific - the restaurants nearby and the local shops everything you could need. Would return in a heart beat.
Would return in a heartbeat sums it up.
We are booked for all but 2 weeks for 2013 season
Half are returning guests
See you next heartbeat!
70' + in October, clear blue skies, sea warm enough for swimming, and the apartment is right on the beach. We didn't travel far - shops and great restaurants also in easy strolling distance - our favourite was Le Coup de Fourchette. The town is completely authentic, with friendly people.
The apartment is exactly as described, and is raised up so there are great views over the bay toward Cannes, and the bay is popular with boats of all sizes so there is plenty to watch.
Our arrival and departure were well managed, spoiled only because we had chosen the cheapest on-line car rental at Nice airport, and so had everyone else - we waited a very long time, while other renters had no customers - Grrrrrrr. But the friendly welcome from the housekeeper helped to quickly put that behind us as we settled in to this very well appointed apartment. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday which we would love to repeat.
