Toulon Provence Méditerranée, 12 lands of rubgy
Are you a ruby fan and are you planning to go and see one or more matches of your favourite team in Marseille or Nice?
Choose to stay in Provence Méditerranée and combine your passion for rugby with a superb holiday on the Mediterranean
. The love of the Toulon people for rugby has been proven. You only have to see the atmosphere in the city around the Mayol stadium before and after the Top 14 matches
, or listen to the supporters singing the pilou pilou song
to understand that here, rugby is not just a sport, it is a religion.
At the time of the World Cup, in September and October, the weather is still very pleasant in the Var. The beaches are a little less crowded and the water is still good, the forests are accessible again, while the cultural season is in full swing.
Thus, the amateurs of walks and hikes
will be able to discover the preserved natural spaces which are the Toulon mounts (Faron, Gros Cerveau...), the massif of the Cap Sicié, the Gaou in Six Fours or the peninsula of Giens in Hyères.
Those who cannot choose between nature and the sea will be delighted by the islands of Hyères - Porquerolles, Port Cros
- or the more intimate island of Embiez
, jewels of our destination where you will alternate between walks on the flowery paths, idleness or discovery of the sea bed.
Of course, we are not talking about beach lovers
, sunbathers, swimmers... the reputation of the beaches of our beautiful Mediterranean coastline is well established
However, for those who like to enjoy the sea, many activities and water sports
are available to all. For example, you can discover the coast in a kayak or paddle, take up scuba diving, learn to windsurf or simply take a walk on the sea to discover the creeks of Cassis for example.
For those who want to discover a city on a human scale
, Toulon is perfect. Currently undergoing a complete renewal, you will be delighted to discover its city centre (the Rue des Arts, the Chalucet district, the art museum, etc.). Don't miss the Cours Lafayette market
where you can buy all your Provencal specialities
. You can also admire the most beautiful harbour in Europe by taking the cable car to the heights of Mont Faron
, or take a guided boat tour
And because there's more than just "French flair
", we also invite you to discover the "French art of living
" by sitting on the terrace of a café to drink a glass of Provence rosé or a local beer, chat around a petanque court with the locals, or simply take a little nap in the shade.
Remember, this is the South. And in Toulon, everything is different!
