A Local Tip: Théoule-sur-Mer

8.18.2012


Before leaving Provence on my last visit to the Pays de la Lavande and olive groves, my family decided to act on the recommendation from a local acquaintance. He suggested we visit Théoule-sur-Mer, a small village with nice beaches and especially a smaller one, more intimate and quiet, sandy and only accessible by foot - a little alcove away from the more touristic destinations of the Côte d'Azur. Théoule-sur-Mer is located in the Bay of Cannes with views of the legendary city known for its annual film festival.  Our resident local mentioned the little restaurants that sit 10 meters from the sparkling azure water.

We arrived mid-morning and found a space where the body sinks comfortably into the landscape. We swam, lounged and had lunch watching the kids play in the sand. We didn't have to venture far off the busy life of La Riviera yet felt so far away. Perfect.

So when you find yourself seeking a more intimate yet accessible corner of the Mediterranean Sea, Théoule-sur-Mer is un arrêt sableu qui en vaut le coup, a sandy alcove worthy of a stop...
