Sanary-sur-Mer

The commune of Sanary-sur-Mer is a seaside resort in the département of Var in Provence, located 13 km from Toulon and 49 km from Marseille, in the south of France.

The seafront location was part of the commune of Ollioules. In the 16th century the seigneur established a fishing village here, clustered around the medieval watchtower, under the protection of "Sanct Nazari" of Lérins Abbey. The port was constructed and the harbor deepened in the mid-16th century. The little fishing port of Saint Nazari was finally granted its independence from Ollioules in 1688, and in 1890 officially received its local name in Provençal, Sanary, which was formalized and distinguished as sur-Mer in 1923.

As a tourist rendezvous, the village underwent a strong decade of growth in the 1980s.
