The area around Saint Raphaël and Fréjus is one of the most naturally beautiful parts of the French Riviera. The monumental red cliff faces of the Massif d’Esterel rise out of the water, creating a stark contrast against the vivid turquoise of the Mediterranean sea and the deep greens of the surrounding forests. The region has some of the best walking trails in the Côte d’Azur, which range in difficulty making them suitable for all abilities. For the less energetic, a drive along the stunning coastal road, La Corniche d’Or, will reward visitors with breathtaking views of the secluded creeks and calanques that punctuate the dramatic rock formations.
Some of the best golf courses in the South of France are situated nearby, benefitting from the magnificent countryside that surrounds them. Good clubs include the Golf de Valesclure, the oldest 18 hole course on the French Riviera, the beautifully sculpted Golf de L’Ésterel, and the 9 hole Golf de Cap Esterel, which enjoys stunning sea views of the Côte d’Azur.
Les Etangs de Villepey is a large area of marsh and wetland, which is home to hundreds of varieties of birds, including flamingos, herons and other wading birds. There is a good 7km walking trail that allows visitors to appreciate the spectacular flora and fauna of the region.
