The area around Saint Raphaël 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 near Saint Raphaël, benefitting from the magnificent countryside that surrounds them.
