Les villas maritimes construites sur le littoral méditerranéen français : essai de bilan

Abstract : Summary : The seaside villas began to be built at the end of the Republic on the Thyrrhenian sea for the Roman aristocracy. They include fishponds and special features as harbours and piers with social implication of luxury, emulation and so on. In France we know for a long time these immerged buildings but lately they are more interpreted as small towns. In this paper, I try to explore several units, with special attention to the environment, nature of terrain and architecture to delineate typology from great complexes similar to Italy to ordinary villas and, sometime, The status of the owners is more difficult to be understand and it is impossible to draw maps of these villas except for the Var shore and, perhaps, the gulf of Marseille
