Hyeres is located in the posh Cote d'Azur region in the south of France. It boasts many beautiful, clean beaches and a large, striking marina. Hyeres has a history which dates back to the 12th century and the old town is full of winding streets, small shops and a traditional market. There are many cinemas, restaurants and parks which offer recreation for people of all interests.
Hyeres is an ideal-sized town for a linguistic stay: with its 56,000 inhabitants, it is large enough to provide all the services and entertainment you would expect, yet small enough to have a soul and enable you to know all the best places and to meet local people easily. Hyères has a heart and a history dating back to the XII century, of which the old town bears witness, with its picturesque winding streets, small shops and traditional markets. Of course Hyères has developed and grown, but always harmoniously: interesting shopping precincts, affluent residential areas, parks and flower gardens everywhere. A theatre, an auditorium seating 3,000, a gambling Casino, cinemas, discotheques, restaurants etc.... are all to be found in the lively town centre.
