The St Bastide golf is conveniently located just 2 km away.
Nearby Saint Raphael (18 km) is one of the jewels of the French Riviera. A spa resort at the time of the Romans, partially destroyed during barbarian invasions, Saint Raphael city centre was rebuilt in the 3rd Republic urban style and recovered its long forgotten fame. Like its neighbour Fréjus it can provide a very lively nightlife.
Lining the Old Port, cours Jean-Bart and quai Albert-Ier are very lively. Promenade René-Coty and boulevard du Général-de-Gaulle, which are planted with plane trees and palm trees, provide a beautiful view over the sea and the twin rocks known as the «Earth Lion» and the «Sea Lion».

The leisure port, Santa Lucia, is the 3rd largest of the French Mediterranean coast
Next to St Raphael, Frejus, first Roman port of the region, is famous for its historical treasures including 29 monuments such as the roman amphitheatre, the theatre, the aqueduct, the medieval cathedral and the city walls.
For nature lovers, the Esterel or Massif des Maures mountains (both nearby) and the “gorges du Verdon” canyon (90 km) are a must.
The Esterel is a low-lying, ravined mountain range extending to the sea with promontories, deep creeks, headlands and beaches. Its fire-red colours form a striking contrast with the indigo blue of the Mediterranean. The Corniche d’Or coastal road running between Frejus/St-Raphaël and Cannes is a great way of exploring the area.
To enjoy le Verdon you must take the Route de la Corniche Sublime which begins at Comps-sur-Artuby, a former stronghold of the Templar Knights. The village is at the foot of a rock crowned by the 13C Eglise St André where the views over the Artuby gorge and the Provençal landscape are really worth the climb. The road then heads for the amazing Balcons de la Mescla overlooking the Verdon. Continue on past the two Tunnels de Fayet which command a breathtaking view of the curve of the canyon, turning into the Falaise des Cavaliers. The latter towers above the precipice between 250 and 400m high and stretches out over 3km. Then the road leads into the Cirque de Vaumale offering splendid views on the way out. On your way back to St Raphael, the turquoise Lac de Ste-Croix into which the Verdon flows, and the attractive village of Moustiers-Ste-Marie , reknowned for its fine ceramics are well worh a stop.
The Massif des Maures mountains stretches from Hyères to Roquebrune sur Argens, with emerald-green vegetation reaching between the sea and the Gapeau and Argens valleys. Discover numerous resorts , their viewpoints and charming landscapes; the Corniche des Maures is a magnificent road for touring. The interior was long isolated and remains wild. It is home to interesting sites such as the village of Grimaud, Verne Monastery and the villages of Collobrières and Bormes-les-Mimosas.
