Hyères, the most southerly city of Provence ( and one of the sunniest), is on the same latitude as Cap Corse and Florence, Italy.
The city and its peninsula have 39km of pristine sand beaches and rocky inlets to affer.
Hyères, the city of palm trees, was once the favorite summer resort of celebrities, some of the intellectual elite and the rich.
The magnificent homes that they built near the old city in the beginning of the century are still there.
The charm, climate and wonderful scenery make this a special place across the way from the Iles d'Or of Porquerolles, Port Cros and Le Levant.
The port for private boats and its sheltered anchorage makes Hyères a first rate boating center.
With all the equipment available and the presence ot the French sailing team Hyères is not about to relinquish its place as a boating port of international importance.
