Saint-Raphael Hotels

Set on the French Riviera between the glitz and glam of Cannes and Saint-Tropez, the marina town of Saint-Raphael shuns the limelight in favour of a more peaceful existence. Boasting a Massif mountain backdrop and alluring azure waters, the picturesque town is all about life’s indulgent pleasures - from fine French fare, to beach-based R&R. Livelier pastimes abound too however, whether you want to trek rugged coastal scenery, live it up in the casino, or dive into the ocean to discover wartime wrecks.

Things to see

Saint-Raphael’s shore is gilded with several blissful beaches, which are undoubtedly the town’s biggest draws. Reclining just a stone’s throw from the resort’s centre, the main beach is every bit the Mediterranean cliché, with its golden sand and warm sparkling water. A short walk away you’ll find an even longer stretch lining the adjoining town of Frejus. Backed for much of its length by a palm-fringed promenade, it offers a myriad of water sports activities, as well as cafés and bars providing some icy refreshment. Frejus has no shortage of its own attractions either, including family favourite, Luna Park. An excitable hub of music and colourful lights, the bustling funfair offers rides for all ages, from the ghoulish ghost train to the traditional Big Wheel. Frejus Cathedral is a must-see for history buffs. Part of medieval complex dating from the 5th to 13th centuries, its characterful cloister features an intricately painted ceiling, adorned with biblical scenes and fantastical creatures.

Just over the River Pedega, the centuries-old town of Frejus brims with historical sites. Alongside its cathedral, it boasts an ancient Roman amphitheatre, where open-air performances are still held today. Shoppers can hunt for all-kinds-of-everything in the town’s overflowing street market, whilst outdoorsy types can hike about the fiery-coloured hills of Massif d’Esterel.
