HYERES (France)

Resort town in the Var department, SE France, in Provence, on the Mediterranean Sea. Founded in the 10th century, it developed as a medieval port.

The noted American writer Edith Wharton bought Sainte-Claire le Château, formerly a convent, in Hyères, which became her winter and spring retreat between 1919 and 1937. Hyères is also home to the Villa Noailles, designed by modernist architect Robert Mallet-Stevens for the noted art patrons the vicomte and vicomtesse de Noailles, now a museum of modern art.
