This is a beautiful, spacious apartment. It is actually the entire first floor of the house. There is plenty of room for six people - two per bedroom, then two in the living room. You can walk to the sea from the house, but I would suggest you drive to the public beach. The parking there is free in October as the busy season is finished. There is a small grocery store a ten minute walk from the house. A half hour walk will take you into the centre of St. Raphael with its bakeries, butchers, wine shops, the train station etc. It is a half hour train ride to Nice. Even closer, I would strongly recommend hiking in the Dramont (a five minute drive east), and visiting the Roman ruins in Frejus. Marie France is helpful, always there, but never hovering. We enjoyed our week and hope to return!
