Overview

About the property

Apartment in Cavaliere, Le Lavandou, Var, France - 300m From The Beach

A modern apartment comprising entrance hall with bunks, bathroom, separate WC, living room with double sofa bed and kitchen area, one double bedroom, balcony with rural views. The balcony is approx 8 square metres with a table and six chairs for entertaining. The umbrella and cushions are in navy and white. The flat has its own designated parking space opposite the front door. As the development is on an incline, the front door is at ground level and the rear balcony is on the first floor. The apartment faces south and overlooks hills planted with trees and shrubs. The building has recently been decorated. The gardens and buildings are kept in excellent condition. We installed a new kitchen area in 2014, new sliding doors on to the balcony in 2013 and a new bathroom in 2015.

About Ann Walker

We live in the countryside in England and decided that the seaside would provide a different experience for everyone. Our children who are now in their late twenties and early thirties still come with their friends and partners. I teach French and therefore love to visit France every year to practise my French.

Ann Walker purchased this apartment in 1989

Why Ann Walker chose Hyeres region

We love this part of France. We are so near the beach and enjoy the Mediterraen sun at all times of the year. It is relatively unspoilt when compared with most of the Cote d'Azur and is a resort enjoyed mainly by French families. Of course we do have some English and Italian visitors but for the moment it is a well kept secret from the masses!!! The countryside too is lovely with the wonderful Maures mountains in the background and with many delightful places to visit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The apartment was perfect and beautifully presented."



"We are very much looking forward to returning to your lovely apartment for the second year running."



"We had a wonderful holiday - the flat was ideal for us and we loved Cavaliere and the surrounding countryside/coastline."

Car hire recommended, though you can reach Cavaliere by bus from Toulon/Hyeres Airport. Alternatively we often drive down to Cavaliere sometimes via the motorway and sometimes on the A roads taking time to visit places of interest in France on the way.

Distances:

Le Lavandou 6.5km. Bormes Les Mimosas 9km. Hyeres 29km.

St Tropez 32km. Cannes 104km.

Further Details:

Tennis courts may be hired at the tennis club where there is also a gourmet restaurant (owned by a highly acclaimed French chef who has recently returned to the area ) and a swimming pool. Bicycles may be hired in the village and the old railway line is now a coastal cycle track and walkway.

Shopping is very convenient with two boulangeries, a post office, a tourist information office and two small supermarkets in the village . There are also several other shops selling gifts, beach clothes, newspapers, books etc, and some restaurants, bars and a pizzeria. In Le Lavandou there are three large supermarkets, a range of shops and many delightful restaurants. There is a very good self service launderette in Cavaliere and dry cleaning facilities in Le Lavandou.

Cavaliere is one of twelve beaches in the commune of Le Lavandou and is situated on a protected coastline. The area benefits from a mild climate in winter with lush semi-tropical vegetation. From Le Lavandou and also from Presqu'ile de Gien you can take a ferry to the islands of Porquerolles, Port Cros and Le Levant. Visitors can enjoy a relaxed lunch at the local restaurants and the excellent walking and cycling tracks on the islands. On Porquerolles you can hire bicycles and Port Cros it is particularly suitable for walking as there are no cars.

To the west you can visit Bormes Les Mimosas, an ancient hilltop medieval village famous for its mimosa, which flowers from January to March, with views of the sea and the islands. Hyeres, an old medieval town, has a casino, a racecourse and some wonderful public gardens and large avenues lined with its famous palm trees.

To the east is Le Rayol, with its spectacular, restored Edwardian garden and arboretum which sweeps down to the sea.This garden was first created in 1910 but fell into disrepair in the 1960s. In 1989 it was acquired by the Conservatoire du Littoral and the restoration began. Musical soirees and plant fairs take place during the tourist season.

Beyond lie St Tropez, Port Grimaud and the rest of the Cote d'Azur. St Tropez and its peninsular are a delight to visit. Beautiful scenery and views. In St Tropez there are some excellent shops and a typical provencal market on Tuesdays and Saturdays. There is a small museum called the Annonciade which is worth visiting and of course the stunning yachts in the harbour. Nearby are several hill top villages like Gassin, Grimaud and Ramatuelle, all set amongst the vineyards.

Behind the coast is the Maures Massif, covered in huge forests, an important centre for the production of cork. Its capital Collobrieres, home of the chestnut and ‘marrons glaces’, is a charming village and well worth a visit.

Notes:
Outside: The balcony is 8sqm and is large enough to seat six people comfortably around the table. The parking space is immediately outside the front door. Towels and linen are not included, but hire can be arranged through one of the shops in the village or if available I have a small amount of bed linen which I can offer. Most people bring their own sheets, duvet covers, pillowcases and towels. I provide duvets, pillows and some cotton blankets free of charge. If I provide the bed linen (sheets etc) a small charge to cover laundry and wear and tear is made. We do not have a cleaner and each group of guests clean the flat on departure. This has worked well for over 25 years. We can be flexible on changeover dates and the number of nights visitors want to stay especially out of season.

Lovely quant villa right near the beach.

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful and relaxing place where I spent a wonderful holiday with two other friends for a week. The villa was very clean and well taken care of and very comfortably slept all three of us. We spent many hours sitting outside on the large terrace having meals and relaxing. The villa is a short walk to the main strip where the beach and several bar/restaurants are. Everyone we met within the community was very lovely and I felt very safe the entire time I was here (abroad for me). Laundry was onsite which we did use, as well as free parking. The bathroom was also completely renovated and beautifully done. The air cooled at night and we slept with the living room windows open for a nice breeze. I found the entire condo village a very authentic experience in the South of France and highly recommend a stay here. Lots to do nearby including boating, the Beach, hiking and wine tasting at one of the local vineyards. Thank you to the hosts for a great stay and for taking such great care of their place. They also left a wealth of information about the area with personal recommendations of what to do.

What a wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place to stay for a week in Cavaliere. The flat was very clean, very comfortable and very functional. We were a 10 minute walk to the beach which was very convenient and left us with many options. We could stay at the beach all day, go home for lunch, go back to the beach or visit one of the many nearby towns. We were also left with a detailed book of suggestions for places to try in Cavaliere and in the surrounding area which was most helpful. The flat is conveniently located to cafes, shops, restaurants, laundry, and most importantly the beach. There are many wineries about a 30 minute drive away and many other small towns worth exploring along the coast. It was an absolute wonderful week and I cannot wait to go back.

Great property in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice time in Ann's apartment in June,

The apartment had every thing you need a lovely balcony not overlooked and a good size for sitting out

With the sun in the morning early afternoon.

The beach is a 5 minutes walk away and there is an excellent shop for all your needs

We shall visit again in the future Jim and Jean retired

Yet another wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Well situated slightly away from the melee in the main area but close enough to have a pleasant stroll to the beach and shops. The apartment is well equipped for self catering but there are plenty of bars, cafes and eateries nearby. Enjoy sitting on the balcony for breakfast in the morning sun and overlooking a nice wooded area. Great having reserved parking just outside so unloading and loading the car is easy. Comfortably sleeps 4 adults and full size bunk beds for children. Good layout with bathroom and separate toilet between the two sleeping areas. Thoroughly recommend and going back for our fifth year in a row next year.
