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.

                                                                  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

                                                                  Everything was fine.

                                                                  SteveSan Francisco

                                                                  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

                                                                  Emma & MorayGlos, UK

                                                                  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

                                                                  Maz and PeteMelbourne, Australia

                                                                  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.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  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.
