Villa TamarisVilla Tamaris nocturneVilla Tamaris
This villa, built from 1890 by Michel Pacha and restored in 1991, is reminiscent of the Tuscan style with its cubic plan, its pediments decorated with garlands, its large openings and its terraces with balusters.
Perched on the heights of the Tamaris hill, surrounded by umbrella pines, the villa overlooks the bay of Lazaret and the Toulon harbor. Built at the end of the 19th century by Blaise Jean-Marius Michel, known as Michel Pacha, the palatial 3,700 m2 house is reminiscent of the Tuscan style, with its cubic floor plan, garlanded pediments, large openings and terraces with balusters.

Rehabilitated by the municipality of La Seyne-sur-Mer, it opened its doors as an Art Center in 1995. In December 2003, it was transferred to the Communauté d'Agglomération Toulon Provence Méditerranée. Every year since 2003, Villa Tamaris has hosted the "Œil en Seyne" International Photography Festival, with two floors devoted exclusively to image, video and photography. Artistic programming will be handled by the Association "Objectif sur Seyne", chaired by Jacqueline Franjou, and its artistic committee.
