at the foot of Mount Baou on the heights of Toulon
The town of Toulon was built between the sea and the mountain. It is therefore easy not only to practice water sports but also to go hiking in the hills and discover magnificent panoramic views. Standing at the foot of the mountain in a quiet, residential district, this property is just 10 minutes from the TGV train station and the motorway, 45 minutes from Hyères airport and less than an hour from that of Marseille. The nearest beaches are 20 minutes away, the shops are a 10-minute walk and a supermarket just 5 minutes by car.
The main house
This dwelling faces south-south-east like most of the old houses. The main section of the house, spanning approx. 350 m² of living space, with three straight windows on the facade and a central French window featuring panes with curved corners, opens on to a large terrace, covered with terracotta tiles, in the shade of two old trees, and offers a view of the mountain. It is extended to the north by a self-contained, two-room flat and outbuildings.
The main entrance, opening on to a terrace amongst the olive trees, is on the west side. The entrance door opens into a very large vestibule, housing a stairway with terracotta tile steps and wooden nosing that leads upstairs. On the south side, a central lounge, with a marble fireplace, opens on to the terrace and into the dining room as well as a small lounge-study, with a separate toilet. The entrance hall and the lounge are laid with cement floor tiles, featuring multi-coloured motifs. Both the dining room and the small lounge are laid with terracotta floor tiles. The ceilings in the entrance hall and the lounge are 3.60 m high.

This family home, exuding a certain charm, is extremely sound and in a good state of repair. Concealed from the road and out of sight of onlookers, it is in a quiet district within walking distance of a few shops. Hiking trails through the natural surroundings are nearby, despite being close to all main communication routes. Its two annexe dwellings make it possible to accommodate a caretaker or passing guests with no loss of privacy, given that the garden has been designed to include numerous nooks and crannies.
