Located in the heart of a pine forest, perched on the heights of a hill right next to the Mediterranean Sea and the bay of Tamaris, Villa Tamaris was built at the end of the nineteenth century by an officer of the Merchant Navy, Blaise Michel Pacha. It extends over 3700 m2. Since it was opened in 1995, this TPM art center has been reflecting the continuous change and constant renewal of painting but has also opened up to all fields of contemporary creation.

As of 2022 "Toulon Provence Méditerranée Metropolis" intends to make Villa Tamaris a place dedicated to photography and endorse the great protagonists of photography and video art of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries
