277 Chemin du Vieux Colombier - La Garde


During our many years in California, in the San Francisco Bay Area, my American friends often got the wrong name and called me Bernice instead of Beatrice. They likely combined my husband BERNard and me BeatrICE in a single first name!

We found this wonderful property by chance during a family holiday and decided to buy it to allow our four children, scattered between Europe and North America to have a place to meet.

Bernice is made up of 4 units, three of which we rent regularly during the summer:

  • San Francisco - bungalow for two - available sept 1st through May 31st.

  • Malibu - bungalow for two - generally available June 1st to August 31st.

  • San Diego - Apartment for 4 - available June 1st to August 31st.


This is a serene location, ideally located to discover the magnificent coast from Toulon to Saint Tropez (Le Pradet, Giens, Hyères, Porquerolles). The swimming pool is shared with the owners and 2 other guests.


The coastal cycle path goes from Hyeres to Toulon, in a rural setting and totally protected from car traffic.


Each bungalow / apartment has its own private outdoor space, barbecue and one parking spot.

  • French classes : remote or French immersion
  • Discovery of an authentic  part of Provence 
  • Vacation rentals with pool and beach nearby


Very easy by:

  • Plane (Toulon - Hyères airport 20 minutes away)

  • Train (Toulon station 20 minutes away by direct bus)

  • Bus 19 and 29 (Ginouse Stop - 4 minutes walking distance) bus 39 (Pont de Suve Stop then 7 minutes)

  • Car: Exit 2 Le Pradet from Toulon

Please Note

  • No wheelchair access

  • Not recommended for young children (cactus and unsupervised pool)

  • Sorry no dogs.

  • Smoking OK - outside, in your private garden
