Luxury holidays in Saint-Raphaël
Resort town Saint-Raphaël sits pretty on the Côte d'Azur. Fabulous sunseekers will have a clutch of beaches to choose from and architecture buffs can gawk at the Old Town’s impressive 14th-century watchtowers and the Romanesque church. Stretch your legs with a hike along the marked coastal path – enthusiastic amblers can wander all the way from the Baumette lighthouse to the bay of Agay in around five hours – and settle in for sundowners (and a post-ramble crêpe) at any of the town’s classic French cafés and seaside restaurants.
When to go
Saint-Raphaël’s Mediterranean climate makes it a year-round destination, with hot, dry summers and mild, humid winters.
