Outdoor enthusiasts will love Saint-Raphaël for its beaches, watersports, golf courses, and hiking and biking trails in the protected Estérel mountain range.
Market lovers will enjoy the choice in food markets:
Place Victor Hugo: every morning except Mondays
Place de la République: every morning except Mondays
Place de la Poste: only Monday mornings
Place Giannetti: only Wednesday mornings
and the daily marché aux poissons (fish market)
Between January and March, follow the 130 kilometre Mimosa Trail from Bormes-les-Mimosas to the perfume capital of Grasse. Saint-Raphaël is roughly halfway at the 59 km mark, its a great place to stay. More details (in French) here.
