Levant Island

The LEVANT ISLAND is part of the group of islands of the Archipel of Hyères (the Iles d’Or) situated off the Var Coast in the South-Eastern part of France including also the ISLAND of PORQUEROLLES and PORT CROS ISLAND. The islands are administratively attached to the city of Hyères les Palmiers. 

Levant Island is served by two shipping companies, one from the yachting harbor of HYERES adjacent to the airport of TOULON-EST, the other one from the harbor of LE LAVANDOU. 



The domain of HELIOPOLIS on which is situated VILLA EGLANTINE is a private estate open to the public, founded in the years 1930.


It is located at the extreme western part of the island and occupies about 10% of the total surface of the island, i.e. 90 hectares. The rest of the island is military domain, inaccessible to the public.


The domain includes about 250 homes. Around one hundred residents live there year round.

The village center is represented by its square on the upper area of the island, at about 150 meters from VILLA EGLANTINE.


The village square disposes of a range of restaurants and bars, and, on the square itself or nearby, a bakery, a grocery store, a post office, and boutiques for souvenirs, jewelry, clothing, etc...

The domain disposes of a naturist sand beach and other bathing sites between the port of Ayguade and up to the extreme end of the nature Reserve.

In addition to beach activities and swimming, you can also practice sea kayaking, fishing, as well as snorkeling and scuba diving allowing to discover the most beautiful underwater world of the Mediterranean (more precisely the underwater reserve of Port Cros).

The naturist domain of Heliopolis is preserved from noise and pollution, circulation being solely by foot, with the exception of some authorized service vehicles.

So you may discover the field through its many paths, walkways and ledges, including the nature Reserve.
