Additional Location Information
A true garden oasis by the sea, at the mouth of the gulf of Saint Tropez, Sainte Maxime enjoys exceptional surroundings and long annual hours of sunshine. With 6 kms of sandy beaches called the Croisette, Madrague, Nartelle, Eléphants and Garonnette, Sainte Maxime offers all the authentic treasures of a typical Provencal village on the Mediterranean: a gulf with wild rocky inlets of incomparable beauty and long stretches of sandy beaches rarely found on the Côte d'Azur.
When wandering through, enjoy the wonderful Provencal scents of pine and palm trees, mimosa, flowers and other Mediterranean plants. Stroll through the cobbled streets in the town centre where you will find stalls bearing local crafts, and flower and fruit and vegetable markets, bursting with colour and delicate fragrances.
Sainte-Maxime, the elegant family destination offers a completely particular climate with an exceptional sunning of almost 300 days per annum and a winter temperature ranging between 12 and 19 degrees Celsius. All year long Sainte Maxime shows a real dynamism for sports and cultural events, children and adults activities. The sea invits you to relaxation and to nautical activities, the town offers you a wide range of discoveries and walks: Farniente, culture, fairs and sports, everything is there for an ideal stay!
In the evening, after a hard day on the golden sandy beach, the promenade's busy café terraces light up to the sound of live orchestras. Whether you want to rest, sleep or romance, every possible holiday wish comes true in Sainte-Maxime in Summer. And if you're feeling athletic, you can also practise tennis, sailing, boules, jet ski, mountain-biking and every other imaginable sport here.
