The "Sun City" (Centre Mondial du Naturisme). 152 acres at the western end of th Ile du Levant. Bought by the Durville brothers (doctors) in 1931 and built up as naturiste centre. The property is divided into allotments and sold tu numerous owners. The latter, however, are all subject to the "Syndicat des Propriétaires" with Dr Durville at the head. From a local government standpoint all these property awners are dependent on the Mayor's Office at Hyeres which also collects taxes. But neither the syndicate not the Mayor's Office directly concern themselves with arranging accomodation or other tourist matters. Interested buyers should note that bungalows and allotments only very rarely come up to sale on the property market. (Queries should be addressed to : Agence Minimum or Agence Meyer, Ile du Levant).
