If you’re looking for sun in France, head to Sanary-sur-Mer. This sunny little port town in the Var region, with its pretty Provencal houses, palm tree-lined streets and selection of beaches seems to benefit from more sun than anywhere else in the country. Strolling around the quiet pedestrian streets, you’ll come across a number of interesting sites including the Gothic Eglise Saint Nazaire church and the medieval 13th-century watchtower, now home to the Frederic Dumas Diving Museum. It is in Sanary that Jacques Cousteau began diving, and now the museum boasts much of his original equipment. It’s certainly a wonderful place to scuba dive. A walk along the seafront is a must. Watch the fishermen pull in the fresh fish, and look out for what you might be eating later on that day in any one of the restaurants. Enjoy the beaches, and look out for the colourful Provencal market held every morning. Wednesday’s are the main market day.
