This wonderful, chic converted boat house is located right on the sea between the main beach and the port in the town of Les Issambres, Cote D'Azur in France.
At Toowoomba you eat, sunbathe, sleep and wake up inches from the beach. The French call it ‘pieds dans l’eau’ (feet in the water) and there isn’t a house in the Mediterranean closer to the water. Whilst others are getting in their cars and heading through the Riviera traffic for the beach you are already there, before your eyes have opened.
From the main room, French doors lead out onto the veranda jutting right out over the sea, and up above is a stunning large roof terrace where you can sunbathe or simply take in the wonderful view over the sea to St Tropez.
Both the villa itself and the terrace measure 120 square metres.
The main room features an open kitchen, breakfast bar and lounge area with leather seating. You walk through big French doors and onto the veranda that juts out into the sea.
Above you there is a spacious, private roof terrace with dazzling views. You can lie in the sun or the shade gazing out to the sea and watch the ferries go back and forth to St Tropez. There are sunbeds and parasols on the roof terrace, plus a dining table and chairs. There is also a BBQ on the terrace, steps down to the beach and an outdoor shower.
4 bedrooms all with stunning coastal views:
Bedroom 1 - double with en-suite 'wet room'.
Bedroom 2 - double.
Bedroom 3 - twin with pull-out beds underneath.

Les Issambres is a lovely little town that offers a great butcher, numerous bakers, supermarket and even the weekly market is less than 300 yards away. There are also local tennis courts next to the sea.
At St Maxime, which is a couple of miles down the road there is a beautiful marina, a great 18 hole golf course and many wonderful restaurants, both formal and informal.
Another 6 miles down the road and round the bay is St Tropez. You might think about driving there but only briefly before you realize that there is a ferry from the harbour 300 yards away which leaves every few hours for St Tropez.
If you are feeling flush you can hire a car and drive through the Var, perhaps to the stunning Gorges de Verdon or maybe just a little vineyard in the hills.
Other nearby attractions include Aqualand Water Park in the towns of Ste Maxime, Port Grimaud and St Raphael.
Local activities available include water sports, golf, tennis, river kayaking, jet skiing and many others.
