Things to do

It's the Fort that counts on a La Lavandou vacation

A 20-minute drive west of La Lavandou is the Fort de Bregancon, the former residence of the French president. Perched on a rocky island, it's blessed with some of the finest views along the coast. Built in the 13th century, the fort is now national monument and visitor attraction, and visitors can book a guided tour around the fascinating residence. For more cultural attractions, history fans should head an hour's drive east to Saint-Tropez where you'll find the Saint-Tropez Citadel, a maritime and history museum housed in an old fortress.

Activities

Fall in love with La Lavandou's lush beaches

Boasting more than 7 miles of sandy beaches, this charming seaside resort is a haven for beach lovers. There are several to choose from but Cavaliere Beach is a favorite with the locals, thanks to its buzzy vibe and central location. It also offers plenty of activities, from waterskiing to parasailing, while sailors can rent a catamaran and take to the high seas where they may spot dolphins and whales. Organized cruises also depart regularly from the harbor. After dark, head along the waterfront for a sundowner in one of La Lavandou's many trendy bars and restaurants.

Summertime and the living is easy in La Lavandou

The south of France is renowned for seeing the very best of the French weather. It benefits from a balmy Mediterranean climate which means long, hot summers and short, mild winters, with only a smattering of rain in between. The summer is the busiest time to visit, when temperatures can reach the mid-80s and above. However, this means the best La Lavandou vacation rentals get snapped up quickly. For a wider choice, visit in the shoulder seasons of spring and fall when the weather is cooler but it's still warm enough to eat alfresco.
