You probably don't need us to tell you what an amazing region you will be visiting. Or how many great places there are to see and things to do - enough to keep the whole family happy. From the glitz of Cannes to the majestic Gorges du Verdon (Europe's very own Grand Canyon); from the style of St Tropez to the artists' paradise of Mougins; and from the watersports and beaches of the Lac de St-Cassien to the glamour of Monte Carlo. It's all within easy reach.

Things To Do

To get the best out of this region you will need a car.


This will give you the opportunity to explore the local Lac de St-Cassien with its restaurants and watersports; the fabulous beaches of the Riviera; the stunning Gorges du Verdon; and of course for exploring the local "perched villages" with their markets and restaurants.

​The 7 mile long Lac de St-Cassien is a 10-minute drive away. Here you will find pedalos, sailing, windsurfing, fishing, rowing, horse riding, an aquatic assault course, restaurants and bars. And for the more energetic there are some great walks and bike trails around the lake too.

A few minutes' drive takes you to the start of a beautiful walk which ends up at the staggeringly beautiful Pont des Tuves - if you don't know it, Google some photos! A great spot for a picnic.


A 30 minute drive will take you to Cannes and St Raphaël and from there the beautiful Riviera and the stunning beaches and bays of the Esterel coast. Theoule-sur-mer is the closest and one of the best.


Lunch in Monaco or Italy is only a 75-minute drive away! Or try taking the train heading east from Cannes or St Raphaël - the stunning Riviera line gets you to Nice, Monte Carlo and Menton and on into Italy, with fabulous sea views all the way. The family 'Carte Isabelle' makes this a great value day out.


From Ste-Maxime there’s a ferry over the bay to St Tropez and from Cannes you can hop on a boat over to the local islands.


There are numerous golf courses in close proximity, with the closest being the very highly rated Terre Blanche Golf Resort, rated as one of Europe's best.

The local towns and villages have great markets and restaurants. Just 15 miles away is Grasse, the perfume capital of the world and near to a “Go Ape” type complex with the most amazing views. It's a 75 minute drive to the famous Gorges du Verdon – Europe’s very own Grand Canyon with its walks and water sports. 


And nearby you’ll find great walking, cycling (including cycle hire) and horseriding, along with one of Europe's best gliding centres (Fayence) for the more adventurous!
