is situated in the south of the Côtes des Maures, protected by
the Chaîne des Pradels and surrounded of wooded hills. Near to
nature and far from the stress of the large cities, Cavalaire sur Mer
is a very nice and friendly city. During one week in autumn or in the
spring or of course during estival holidays, you will enjoy simple things
- rest in serenity,
- excursions on the footpaths overhanging the sea, smell the maritime
pines, hear the song of the cicadas,
- dive in the crystalline water of a creek to the emerald reflections...
Lay down under the sun, listening to the murmur of the sea...
the definition of hapiness.
Cavalaire is also a very good location to visit to the popular seaside
town of Saint Tropez or to go to the Pampelonne-Ramatuelle
Beaches. It is only 15 km far from Cavalaire.
