Situated just down the road from Cannes, nestled serenely in an idyllic little cove, and lapped by the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea, lies the delight that is Théoule sur Mer. The coastline here is breathtaking with ochre coloured rocky inlets, cavernous limestone valleys and luscious vegetation, all set magnificently against a backdrop of rugged and imposing mountains; Théoule is a charming - and peaceful little seaside resort - and has everything to delight both tourists and residents alike.

During the 5th century the bay of Théoule sur Mer was a fortified stronghold complete with watch tower – providing safe harbour and security – but was destroyed in 1648. For many years Théoule was a quiet though prosperous little fishing village governed by the municipality of Mandelieu, until becoming a municipality in its own right in 1929.

Towering above this quaint little cove stands the proudly and imposing mediaeval-style Château des Mineurs. Built between 1918 and 1920 by Harry Leland de Lengley, the castellated Château is built from large red-stone, and is flanked by two square towers. Viewed from here, the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean Sea below, lapping gently on the shores of the Bay of La Napoule, and stretching far beyond the horizon… are breathtaking and have inspired artists and poets for ages, and continue to do so; there are many small villages and hamlets within easy reach of Théoule sur Mer where artistic quarters thrive and inspire to this day.

Théoule sur Mer is surrounded by absolutely stunning landscapes, and enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate of long hot summers and short mild winters; making it the ideal location for people who enjoy getting out and about, and prefer a somewhat quieter pace of life to the hustle and bustle of its more famous neighbours. The area has many kilometres of well signed walkways and footpaths from where one can explore the forests of cork oaks and maritime pines of nearby Tanneron Massif.

As a coastal harbour, water sport activities are very popular in the summer including; sailing, water skiing, swimming, diving and fishing; there’s also horse riding, numerous guided tours, a number of fine and challenging golf courses, and many festivals, carnivals and concerts, held around the region each year.
