If you’re looking for a beautiful coastline and sandy beaches in the south of France, La Croix Valmer is a popular choice. Located on the Cote d’Azur, this lovely town has the wooded hilly Massif des Maures as a backdrop, full of wild flowers and cycle trails to enjoy a peaceful country ride or walk. The peaceful town itself has some wonderful ‘belle-epoque’ villas to marvel at, and there’s a fantastic market every Sunday morning on the Place des Palmiers, but it’s most certainly the beaches of La Croix Valmer that hold real appeal. With seven natural sandy beaches, great care has been taken to preserve them, and along with their clear blue waters, have been awarded the ‘blue flag’ for cleanliness and facilities. Plage de Gigaro is the most popular. Cycling and hiking equipment are available, so prepare yourself for a wonderful journey exploring the vineyards, beautiful countryside and coastal walks.
