About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Martin McCloskey

We built this independently owned three bedroom modern villa in the centre of the small resort of Jard Sur Mer 13 years ago and have recently completed a full refurbishment of the property. The small resort of Jard Sur Mer is idyllic with its range of beaches, bars restaurants and a leisure port all within easy walking distance. As soon as we saw Jard, we knew it was the place we wished to build our holiday home as all the components for great holidays are within walking distance.

Why this location? Everything you need is within walking distance. Jard Sur Mer has beautiful, fine sandy beaches and there is always something to do and see down at the leisure port with its restaurants, bars and local entertainment in the summer season. A walk in the pine forests or along the coastal path are great ways to relax. People love to come and stay on holiday and hate to leave this idyllic place.
Unique benefits of property A modern clean recently refurbished villa situated in a quiet location but just five minutes walk from the centre of Jard-sur-Mer.
