Travel Tips for Hyères

Villa Mauresque, 2 avenue Jean Natte

by JLBG

Villa Mauresque was realized in 1881 by Chapoulard for Godillot and designed both for the receptions that gave Godillot and to be rented to winter holidaymakers when Oriental look was poshy. The general drawing of the villa is classical, with a lot of open space and openings but an oriental décor has been added with minarets, azulejos, palm trees, orange trees, etc.

Oh, no, that cannot be true!

by JLBG

"Les Dames de France" was at the turn of the XIXth century one of the most modern departments stores, with stores in most main cities of the country. The one in Hyères is characteristic of the 1900's architecture, with superb plaster molded décor. During the 50s, most "Dames de France" stores closed. This is what happened in Hyères too. The upper levels are now used as offices, but, horror, the ground level has been turned into a Fast Food! I will not give the name! Shame, shame!

Villa Léonie

by JLBG

Villa Léonie, 7 avenue Ambroise Thomas is an example of the small functional buildings that were built in the 1930s for renting, when holidaymakers began to visit Hyères in Summer instead of Winter. The décor is limited to the name of the villa on top of the entrance.

Île de Porquerolles

by JLBG

Île de Porquerolles is not really an off the beaten path destination but as it is outside of the town (though administratively a part of Hyères), I have chosen to put here a brief presentation of Porquerolles. I will build a separate page on this island (to come).

Porquerolles is the largest and the western most of the group of the Îles d'Hyères. It is 7.5 km long and 3 km wide, with an area of 1254ha. Its summit is at the lighthouse, elevation 142 m.

The village of Porquerolles lays at the bottom of a small bay. It was created in 1820 and has now a population of 400 permanent inhabitants. In summer, there are many visitors for day trips but few spend the night on the island where camping is forbidden and that has very few housing capabilities.

Since 1979, he Parc National de Port-Cros is in charge of the Conservatoire Botanique National Méditerranéen de Porquerolles as the island has a very special Mediterranean vegetation.

Château d'Hyères

by JLBG

The Château d'Hyères (Castle) was built on top of a hill that overhangs the old city, with a cliff on the West. That was undoubtedly a fine place to build a stronghold. The first fortress seems to have been built in the XIth by the Lords of Fos. For several centuries, there was a rivalry and several wars between the House of Barcelone and the Count of Toulouse. The castle of Hyères was often wounded in these wars.

In 1257, the Fos family had to give back to Charles d'Anjou, the new Count of Provence their tenure over the castle. Important improvements were then made to the castle.

From 1579 to 1596, the Castle of Hyères played an important part in the "guerres de religion". It was several times assaulted and taken by each party, the Catholic "ligueurs" and the Protestant "razzats".
King of France Henri IVth ordered the castle to be dismantled, what was finally (partly) done after his death by the next king, Louis XIIIth.

There remains now only a part of the castle wall and half destroyed towers.
