About the property

Apartment in St. Mandrier sur Mer, Var, Provence - Quiet Town, 2 minute Walk to Beach

65 sq.m second floor apartment in a very well kept building. Completely refurbished interior comprising open plan kitchen/dining. Salon with TV and beautiful couch for siesta. Front balcony has sun all morning and looks onto the harbour. Listen to the tinkle of the yacht masts 25 metres away. Walk to the lovely little beach only 180 paces/2 minutes away. We have no elevator, so it's 35 steps up to the apartment. But that's your exercise for the day! St Mandrier is located on a small island peninsula tethered to the mainland by a small strip of land and one road, so it's quiet. There is a ferry every 25 minutes to Toulon which only takes 15 minutes. There are daily food markets in Toulon or La Seyne and there is very easy road access to the other well known towns and villages of the Cote d'Azur. Private parking with remote controlled barrier entrance is an added bonus. Nice is about 1hr 45mins. Cannes is about 1hr 20mins. Toulon is about 20 mins. Marseille is about 45 mins.

Wonderful Break

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was in an ideal location with lovely views and easy access to the beach and marina with several good quality restaurants nearby. The apartment had all the facilities for dining in and was very comfortable. A short drive away was another lovely beach. Ideal location for exploring the sights and scenery of the South of France. Renne the local representative was extremely helpful and very nice lady. We would recommend this property.

Le Petit Plage
Car: recommended


The beach that we mention (Le Petit Plage) is used by local families and is literally out the front door, cross the road, turn left and walk for about one minute. It is a small beach but well kept and the swimming area is marked out with nets. This is also the location of the harbour offices and the sailing school. There is another very beautiful long beach at Les Sablettes, which is only five minutes away by car.


Toulon-Hyéres airport is about 30-40 mins. Marseille airport is about 1 hr. Nice airport is about 1hr 45mins. The TGV from Paris to Toulon is 3hr 30mins., A car is very handy for exploring, but we have spent several holidays here without ever using the car. Between trains and ferries it is quite easy to get around. (The Toulon-St Mandrier ferrystop is 2 minutes walk from the apartment). My mother-in-law managed on her own for five months without a car or any French . . . and she's 82!


Cassis is about 20-30 mins by car. Marseille is about 45-60 mins by car. Toulon is 15 mins. by ferry. There are many little villages and towns worth exploring, but you will need a car for this. There is a Tourist Information office in the square in St Mandrier. The island of Porquerolles is just outside the mouth of the harbour about 45min ferry ride. It's a nature reserve, no cars allowed, but you can rent bikes. Or take a ferry to Corsica for a couple of days!

Further Details:

There are supermarkets in the town, but most people would do a 'big' shop at a supermarket like LeClerc which is about five minutes by car. Also you have various food markets which are fantastic. These are at La Seyne (10 mins by car) and Toulon (15mins by ferry). There is also a food market in St Mandrier every Saturday.
