Sanary-sur-Mer, the summery port on the Cote d'Azur

Like wine? You'll love Provence and the Cote d'Azur. Located an 8-mile drive east of Toulon, Sanary-sur-Mer is a charming French port lined with lush palm trees and colorful historic buildings. Boasting more than 280 days of sunshine a year, it's often called the sunniest place in France and draws a beach-loving crowd. A Sanary-sur-Mer vacation rental makes a great base for exploring Provence and the coast. Visit the Diving Museum in the port's 13th-century watchtower, go scuba diving in the depths of the Mediterranean, or take a wine tasting tour around the ancient vineyards of Bandol.

Seafood, sand and sunshine, Sanary-sur-Mer hits the spot

Sandwiched between Marseille and Toulon, this picturesque fishing port is the perfect place to relax. Potter around its buzzy food markets and quirky shops, enjoy a seafood lunch at one of the many waterfront restaurants, or just kick back with a pastis in a local bar. There are several beaches surrounding the port. The locals' favorite is Esplanade Beach, which is within walking distance of the town. Sanary-sur-Mer also has a deeply rooted diving history. The legendary inventor Jacques Cousteau developed the Aqua-lung just off the coast and diving is still a popular sport, drawing scuba fans to the port.

Diving the deep blue sea off Sanary-sur-Mer

A Sanary-sur-Mer vacation rental makes a great base for exploring the Cote d'Azur. But there's plenty of attractions in the town too. Visit the Frederic Dumas International Diving Museum, housed in the port's 13th-century watchtower. It displays a fascinating collection of diving equipment from the past century. Prefer wine to waves? Then visit Bandol, a nearby wine-making region famous for its excellent rose wine. Book a guided tour around the many vineyards, which includes generous sampling of the local vino, so book a cab.

Could Sanary-sur-Mer be the sunniest place in France? Oui!

Famously called the sunniest spot in France, Sanary-sur-Mer boasts over 280 days of sunshine each year, making it a very popular vacation destination. Like much of the south coast, it has a Mediterranean climate with long, blazing hot summers and short, mild winters with a little rain in between. In June, July and August, temperatures can reach the mid-80s and above, and Sanary-sur-Mer vacation rentals get snapped up well in advance. For a wider choice, visit in the shoulder seasons of spring and fall when the sun still shines, naturally, but the temperatures are cooler and a light jacket may be required.

Wild thing, you make my heart sing in natural Cote d'Azur

Perched on France's Mediterranean Coast, Sanary-sur-Mer is 8 miles from Toulon and 36 miles from Marseille. Surrounding this section of coastline is the rugged Maures Mountains. Want to stretch your legs? Why not conquer part of the Grande Randonnee, France's iconic long-distance walking route which zigzags through the range. You may even spot the region's famous wild boar and deer on your travels. Or head an hour's drive west towards Marseille and the Calanques National Park, a beautiful coastal reserve famous for its coastal walks and hidden sandy coves.
