St Raphael, enjoy idleness !

Sea and sun, welcome to St Raphaël, on the world-famous french Côte d’Azur. Facing the Mediterraneean sea, St Raphaël is a 36 000 inhabitants town which attracts a lot of tourists each year, looking for sandy beaches and bustling nightlife.

About France

The mild climate enables the visitor to come all year long. If you want to learn the history of the city, head the archaeological museum where you will see objects that were found in St Raphaël’s bay.

Enjoy the old city centre and the Provencal markets. Then head the San Raféu’s church, the oldest european sanctuary dedicated to the archangel Raphaël, dating back to the 12th century. You can also visit the Notre Dame de la Victoire de Lepante basilica, in a neo-byzantin style.

You also should have a walk along the "Corniche d’or", a road linking St Raphaël to Cannes that offers you beautiful views and landscapes.

    "The TGV is undoubtedly the best way to see Europe within a limited time frame. The punctuality is impeccable . However having said that it is important that one has to be careful of the connecting trains that connect to the TGV . In case the connecting trains are delayed TGV has no allowance on the departure time. "
