From Cavalaire-sur-Mer, 18 km west of Saint-Tropez, to Cap Benat, a small rocky point in the commune of Bormes-les-Mimosas, this part of the Var coastline is simply breathtaking.

At the foot of the first slopes of the Massif des Maures, Cavalaire-sur-Mer is nestled in the heart of a bay that bears its name. Its 4 km of fine sandy beaches offer visitors and residents alike an ideal living environment for family walks and picnics in the mild winter sunshine and lazing around in the summer.

Adjacent to Cavalaire to the west, Le Rayol-Canadel-sur-Mer is a charming little town with an exceptional environment, a veritable bastion of tranquility. To the south, the rocky coastline is made up of headlands, creeks and bays that are home to 4 beaches of great beauty.

Continuing down the coast in the direction of Hyères, the commune of Le Lavandou, a former small fishing port, stretches over more than twelve kilometres with its vast sandy beaches and small creeks. Its natural environment of pines, mimosas, eucalyptus, succulents and palm trees makes it a most pleasant place to live. The luxury real estate sector in Lavandou is dynamic.

Bordering on the west, Bormes-les-Mimosas is clinging to the hillside. With its 12th century heritage, the village is listed among the most beautiful sites in France and is a choice residence for lovers of old stones and history enthusiasts.

Off the coast of Cap Bénat are the Hyères Islands, an archipelago made up of the islands of Porquerolles, Port-Cros, and the Levant Island. More generally called the Golden Islands, they are administratively attached to the city of Hyères. Each of the 3 islands that make up the archipelago has its own unique personality and presents a great variety of Mediterranean landscapes. From the maquis to the fertile and cultivable plains, these islands are veritable gardens in the sea, offering colourful sea beds and exceptional water purity.

A luxury house in Le Lavandou makes you envy? Unless you are dreaming of a property with your feet in the water in Bormes-les-Mimosas?
