Pristine sand and rocky beaches, sea marshes and luxurious gardens, vineyards and orchards, pinewoods and palms. So many decors gathered in one unique community: It is Hyeres, the city of 7000 palm also known today as the palm capitol of the world. Situated at the southernmost point of Provence, only half an hour from Saint-Tropez, the town where the French Riviera was born,was visited during the 19th century by Queen Victoria, Robert Louis Stevenson and D.H. Lawrence amongst others.  In 1887, it was in Hyeres that the writer Stephen Liegard invented the term “Cote d’Azur”,  known by the anlgo-saxon as the “French Riviera”. The profusion of palm trees adorning the wide boulevards, as well as the picturesque hotels and villas, give an exotic aspect to the whole town.

The Historic City

Hyeres has always had a great reputation for its rich agricultural soil, hence its thriving trees and plants, its orchards and vineyards; The queen Catherine de Medici visited Hyeres in 1564 to see the orchards which reminded her of her native Italy.  A century later, King Louis XIV created the “jardin du roi” (the garden of the king) in front of the actual Park Hotel, where he collected some specimens to be planted in the “Orangerie” at the castle of Versailles. In the old town, you’ll find yourself strolling amid winding medieval streets, a medieval guesthouse, Porte Massillon and the 12th century tour Saint Blaise. Look out for Renaissance doorways, the 13th century Provencal gothic church of St. Louis and other examples of a rich past. Above the town is the 12th-century chateau of Saint-Bernard from which there are wonderful sea views and a surrounding park full of Mediterrranean plants. At the top of the hills you’ll find the cubist Villa de Noailles designed in the 1920s by Robert Mallet-Stevens, for art patron Charles de Noailles and used as a film set by Man Ray and Brunuel. Also don’t miss the park Ste-Claire , where American writer Edith Wharton lived and cultivated a rich terraced garden. Among other historic parks in the vallon of Costebelle, visit the “Plantier de Costebelle”, neo-palladienne villas surrounded by enchanting gardens.
