Whether you want to relax, jet-ski, surf, swim or shop, Cavaliere in the south of France could be your perfect holiday destination. Just a 20-minute drive from the natural harbour of Toulon, the long stretch of fine sand that is Cavaliere beach is a wonderful place. Lined with tall pine trees, here you can engage in all manner of watersports, though many are here for the bathing, swimming and lovely climate. Hailed by many as a secret seaside for families, unlike nearby St Tropez, there are no airs and graces, just good old-fashioned seaside fun, with lovely beach cafes and bars, heavenly diving, and plenty of entertainment for everyone. And itís still simply beautiful. And, if you do want a break from the beach, thereís a typical Provencal market on Monday mornings, which runs from the end of May to September.
