A rustic seaside treasure in France

Set on France’s south coast between Marseille and Saint Tropez, Toulon holidays take you to the heart of the French Riviera. With its mountainous backdrop, Toulon has a rustic charm, distinct from the glamour of the Cote d’Azur. Here, pretty fishing boats bob in the harbour alongside submarines and military ships, as the city is home to a major French naval base. Take the cable car up Mont Faron to see the harbour from above, where the views out to sea are phenomenal.

Once you’ve got your bearings, head to one of the area’s several Blue Flag beaches, which are lapped by calm waters. At sunset, make your way to the promenade for a stroll, then duck into one of the many great restaurants where you’ll find tasty seafood platters and delicious locally made wine. With pristine beaches, top-notch cuisine and wonderful scenery all rolled into one, holidays to Toulon offer the best of the French Riviera.

Your Toulon questions, answered

If you’re keen for a taste of glamour and a bit more bustle, then ever-so-chic Saint Tropez is just over an hour’s drive or bus ride away.
The beaches have calm waters and plenty of places for sandcastle building. Kids will adore the mini tourist train, and there are museums suited to little ones, too.
Besides plate upon plate of excellent seafood, when you’re in Toulon you must try some ‘cade’ – these delicious baked fritters, made from ground chickpeas, are a local speciality.
