Sainte-Maxime, ideally located in the heart of the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, is a privileged destination of the Cote d'Azur. Sainte-Maxime is a real haven of tranquility where strolling by the seaside invite you to live moments that one would like eternal. Small corner of paradise between land and sea, the city shelters many beaches where bathing, idleness and nautical activities combine in a soft and family atmosphere.

With its 11 kilometers of coastline, Sainte-Maxime invites to the joys of the beach. Whether you are staying with your family, with friends or with two, the atypical and charming beaches fulfill all your desires.

Sainte-Maxime and its constant desire to protect the environment and to develop reasonably have been rewarded since 1987 with the award of the famous European label "Blue Flag of Europe". This label recognizes and guarantees the quality of bathing water and environmental performance.

The beaches and fields of posidonia (sea plants resembling algae found on Mediterranean beaches) represent a natural environment that everyone must strive to preserve.

Sainte-Maxime, like all the villages of Provence, cultivates and commemorates, throughout the year, its festivals of yesteryear... which were often linked to the cycle of the seasons and the activity of the fields. Also, these festivals were an opportunity for the village to meet, celebrate and forget the vicissitudes of everyday life.
