Travel Tips for Hyères
Alexis Godillot has drawn a whole new part of the city. He also took care of the ornament of the streets. He gave to the city the fountain standing at the crossing of avenue Andrée de David de Beauregard and avenue Alexis Godillot. It was molded in the Val d'Osne foundries that were owned by Godillot.
Villa with a tower
At the crossing of avenue Andrée de David de Beauregard and Boulevard Godillot, this large villa was built in the 1930 for renting to holiday makers. The staircase, in the central tower allows to reach the apartments in each aisle. At the cross road, a fountain offered by Godillot (next tip)
This house stands at the crossing between Avenue Foch and Avenue Joseph Clotis. It has nothing special in its architecture but, as it often occurs in Provence, the colors of the front are enough to transform an otherwise plain building into a part of the scenery.
Porte des Princes
There remains very few of the entrance into the second city wall named Porte des Princes (Princes gate). Only this gothic arch remains and it is in such a bad condition that I am surprised that it is not considered a threat for the passerbys! My opinion is that it would be advisable to avoid passing underneath on a Mistral (strong Northerly wind) day!
Église Saint Louis
The Franciscan (or "Cordeliers" because of the rope they used as a belt) settled in Hyères around 1230 but it was not until 1260 that they began to build a huge convent. Église Saint Louis was in the beginning the chapel of this main Franciscan convent.
