St. Raphael

St. Raphael has risen to stardom as one of the richest towns on the Cote d'Azur. It is an important resort and has been popular with holidaymakers since the early twentieth century, hence St Raphael is known for its wonderful sandy beaches and maritime pursuits, such as diving and boat trips to local sites of interest. The beaches run from the new port of Santa Lucia to the old port in the town centre. From the gare maritime in the old port, or vieux port, you can take boat trips out to the Îles d'Hyères and St-Tropez, and the Îles de Lérins towards Cannes. Lots of other watersports are also on offer, or you could head to the Grand Casino and mix with the rich and famous.

St Raphael is located between the massifs of the Esterel and Tanneron, midway between Saint Tropez and the Italian border. If visiting the haunts of the rich and famous appeals, there are the towns of Monaco, Monte Carlo, Nice, Cannes and St Tropez within easy reach. If you prefer the relative quiet (or cool) of the hills, there are numerous hill towns and villages, each with their own special interest. There is also spectacular geology ranging from the stiking red Massif d'Esterel, which creates awe inspiring coastal scenery between Agay and Cannes, to France's own 'Grand Canyon', the Gorge du Verdon with its steep sides leading down to a turquiose river.
