Perks for the Parents

This architect-designed villa is set high up in a pine forest between Bandol and Saint-Cyr sur-Mer, and is walking distance from a rocky beach on the Riviera coast. With a heated pool, huge terrace and 3-4 bedrooms, it offers a unique place to stay, on stilts in the middle of a pine forest. While it feels immersed in nature in a calm environment, it is under 2km from a rocky beach at Port d’Alon and is within easy reach of Bandol and Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer for shops and further beaches.

Why Kids Love it

This is a magical hideout in the woods to rent with children. The swimming pool is a key draw, and the bohemian décor inside the house encourages creativity and play. There is a woodland garden on the hillside beside the house. The pool is a heated, 11x3m saltwater lap pool where you can swim in the heart of the woods, shielded from noise or pollution. There are beaches within a short drive. Bathtime in the open air of the master suite's deck is sure to be unforgettable. Baby care items including cribs and high chairs are available for a small fee through a rental agency. Please confirm the rate and request on booking.

This level has 2 bedrooms, both open to the terrace: 1 with double sofa bed and 1 with a single bed.

Style Notes

Modern bohemian. With large scale pop art prints of Brigitte Bardot mixing with wicker lampshades, polished concrete floors, brightly-colored armchairs and spectacular woodland views, this property is a standout in our collection. The villa integrates into the natural environment, mixing a cocoon-like feel, pop culture references, and unique touches. The huge bay windows let light into the spacious and airy rooms. We love the poolside lounge areas, the ethnic masks and travel photography, and the welcoming and eclectic lounge space with contemporary fireplace and monochrome pattern cushions.

Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer, French Riviera

Pack swimming kit and sun hats

This beautiful Var village between Toulon and Marseille is one of the most stunning spots on the French coast, with a sandy beach to play on and a winding cliff path running all the way to Bandol. Take up water sports, spend a day at Aqualand, and don't miss the tiny gold statue of the Statue of Liberty in Place Portalis, made by the same sculptor.
