Escape to a luxury retreat beside the sparkling Mediterranean in Theoule-sur-Mer. Unwind at your exclusive beach resort, or venture out to discover the bustling centre of a village renowned as the most beautiful on the French Riviera. Savour the sun-soaked cuisine of Provence, or just while away the day swimming and sunbathing in a tucked-away cove.
The jewel of the Riviera, where green hills sweep down to copper sand and turquoise waters.
Things to do
BEACHES & WATER
Theoule-sur-Mer is famed for its striking beaches, unique among the golden stretches found all along the Riviera. Rugged, ochre-hued cliffs and fantastical rock formations break the beaches up into coves, with azure water ideal for swimming and snorkelling.
The beaches are far from the only attractions of this dazzling coastline. While in Theoule-sur-Mer, you could spend a day exploring nearby Cannes, with its glamorous boutiques and pretty harbour and old town. Or you could take a private boat tour out to the Ile de Lerins, home to historic ruins and many scenic walking trails.
FOOD & DRINK
Sample the enticing blend of the flavours of Provence and the Mediterranean. Savour an evening of fine dining on just-caught seafood and distinctive regional ingredients including garlic, local olive oil and fresh herbs. Or pack a sun-drenched salad and head to the beach. A glass of mellow Cote wine adds a touch of luxury, or you could sip a local favourite, ice-cold pastis.
One of the best beaches in the area is Plage de l’Aguille. Plan a day here to explore the coast and surrounding countryside – a protected nature park.
