The Apartment
Situated on the top floor of a modern block, the apartment has the advantage of a degree of isolation from the marina below life whilst having immediate access to a plethora of restaurants and bars.

The views from the balcony or living room windows afforded by the high vantage point allows observation of life in the marina below and the interesting weather patterns over the hills. The westerly aspect provides shelter from the strongest of the summer sun and onshore breezes. There is a table and chairs on the balcony (that can seat up to 6 people) so you can enjoy the view whilst eating or having a relaxing read.

The sun is on the apartment from mid afternoon and when it sets, the lights in the marina provide an pleasing contrast as it fades over the Maures hills.



Each evening in July and August the port comes to life with an arts and crafts market.
