The beaches of Rayol-Canadel-Sur-Mer, La Croix Valmer and Cavalaire sur Mer are all within a short drive. Also, easily accessible is St Tropez Bay with popular resorts such as Port Grimaud, Sainte Maxime and Saint Tropez itself.
There are also numerous activities available in the area such as walking, horse riding, tennis, golf, go-karting to name just a few as well as wide range of water sports on the coast. If you like entertainment, during the summer, the nearby village of Grimaud (14km) comes alive during the summer with the Grimaldines Festival held on four separate days over a four-week period. The festival attracts artists from all over the world offering free street music as well as evening concerts in the castle’s open-air theatre.

DAY TRIP IDEAS
Grimaud is a charming medieval village with a small selection of shops, bars and restaurants ranging from traditional to haute cuisine. Grimaud is one of many inland villages and has its own unique character. We highly recommend you pay a visit to the antique market the Brocante du Jas des Roberts. A must-see place for all bargain hunters.
Port Grimaud (16km)
Port Grimaud is a modern development built with colourful, traditional style fisherman’s houses lining canals, and has become known as known as the Venice of Provence. It is split into four islands linked by bridges over the waterways and is best visited by water bus.
Saint Tropez (20km – 30min or 20-30min by boat from Port Grimaud)
Saint Tropez is the jewel on the crown of the Cote d’Azur. With its unbelievable charm, this fishing port with chic pavement cafés, shops and sophisticated nightlife still attracts celebrities from around the globe. Arguably everything in St Tropez is famous: over forty beaches such as the Bouillabaisse, Canoubiers and Salins, the legendary Place des Lices in the heat of the town dotted with cafés shaded by plane trees and locals playing boules. Whilst the hype of the 1960’s has settled, Saint Tropez remains a very attractive spot for the international Jet Set and people watching here remains a favourite sport! Regular boat trips to St Tropez. This is a great way of discovering St Tropez without the hassle of having to park your car or getting stuck in traffic. Crossings take 20-30 minutes and costs around 13€ per person return from Port Grimaud.
Why not take a trip to the famous Pampelonne beach? This is where the rich and famous of St Tropez usually hang out during the summer months. There are lots of well-known restaurants dotted along the beach such as the famous Club 55 which in spite of its success has managed to retain its charm. The beach stretches over several kilometres with a string of wonderful coves and rocky inlets so all you have to do is take a stroll and take your pick! In contrast, you can visit the peaceful perched village of Ramatuelle which offers great views along the coast.
Sainte Maxime (23km)
Located on Saint Tropez Bay, the seaside resort of Sainte Maxime faces the Mediterranean Sea and is sheltered from the wind by the Maures Mountains.

There are also private beaches with restaurants available. There is ample parking in Sainte Maxime however it does get very busy in high season. There are numerous water sports activities available and also leisure activities such as golf, tennis but also walking, hiking and horse-riding in the nearby Maures Mountains. A boat trip across the bay is a great way of discovering St Tropez without the hassle of having to park your car or getting stuck in traffic. Crossings take 15 minutes and costs around 13€ per person return.
Frejus, Saint-Raphael (44km)
Fréjus is an ancient military port and Roman city with a rich historical and architectural heritage.
