“A wonderful villa provided all for the dream family holiday.” Our first villa holiday to celebrate a year of significant birthdays and anniversaries in our family, we chose to visit the beautiful fishing commune of Sanary-sur-Mer in the Var area of southern France. As the group of 8 ranged in age from 13 to 80, and included my 21 year old daughter and boyfriend stopping over for a few days during their tour of Provence, we needed to fulfill various needs and requirements and provide adaptable accommodation close to Sanary but away from the hustle and bustle. The villa achieved this.
The bedrooms are a good size with plenty of draw and cupboard space, two being on the ground floor seviced by two down stairs loos, one having a large shower unit. My wife and I had the large upstairs bedroom with a shower room and toilet across the landing. The living room area is very spacious & comfortable with various forms of entertainment including board games, wifi access, computer games and dvd's (French TV channels only) and the dining area large enough for 8 to sit.
In saying this, we spent almost all of our time between the well equipped kitchen and the outside covered seating area (sits 8 for meals), by the pool on the loungers or the barbecue area, fitted with patio furniture (even this late into September).
I loved Sanary-sur-Mer; it is relaxed and welcoming. It is a wonderful place to visit and has a fantastic Wednesday morning market with manner of goods available. The tourist office is just on the quay and worth a visit. The walk from the villa at La Cride into Sanary took me about 30/40 minutes while the 'less' mobile used a good taxi service. There are various beaches in the area, Baie de Portissol (sand) & Baie de Cousse (pebble) both within walking distance. Others are close but a drive away.
If you haven't done before, drive up into the mountain range behind the coast towards the forts. It is no more than 8 miles from the villa but the views and walks are stunning, especially early evening for sunset.
Any criticism. No. I loved this break with the whole family as its always been a dream to bring the family tgether to just chill.
The villa and Sanary did not disappoint.
