Between Cannes and St.Tropez, St.Raphael is a beautiful area with a stunning coastline, in particular the drive from St.Raphael to Cannes is in my view unmatched within the Cote d`Azur. The Cap Esterel separates St.Raphael from Cannes ie a hilly area heavily wooded and with stunning red rock.
The town of St.Raphael is a thriving commercial town but with great charm - ideal both for shopping but with many interesting attractions. The old town of Frejus, just 10 mins by car is stunning and full of character with its Roman remains etc.
There are many vineyards within 30 minutes drive of St.Raphael.
Golf: This is a glorious golfing and tennis area. There are two golf courses in the immediate area and at least thirty more within a one hour drive. The green fees are quite reasonable ie in the region of €70 to €80 per round. The Valescure Golf Club is the oldest in the Var established in 1895 and is full of charm. There is also a nine hole golf course more suitable for beginners golf as well as a driving range.
The two courses in the immediate area (Valescure and Esterel) are interesting with lots of trees to catch the wayward drive and plenty of challenging water features around the greens. Then of course there is the 19th.
In high season it is preferable to tee off relatively early due to the heat. Buggies can also be hired.

About TONY & DENISE BROPHY
My wife Denise (who is an artist) and I used to bring the kids camping to France over the years. We spent many wonderful holidays in campsites all over France but particularly loved the South of France. When I retired although my wife still works we had more time and decided to try and buy a small place in the St.Raphael area, an area we had come to really love during our camping holidays in the South of France.
TONY & DENISE BROPHY purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why TONY & DENISE BROPHY chose Frejus
When we came across the apartment in Valescure we literally fell in love with it. It is unique with so much character and is in such a beautiful and tranquil setting. It has everything we were looking for. It also has an amazing history since it was originally a hotel and was converted to apartments about forty years ago. We consider ourselves so lucky to have it. We now have three grandchildren and our kids love it as it is ideal for couples with small children.
