Sainte-Maxime, the art of living in Provence with its traditions, its atmosphere and its unique scents...
Beyond its coastline et its water enjoyments, Sainte-Maxime offers a natural environment smelling Provence where a particular fauna and flora is observed.
The diversity of its landscapes, the mildness of its climate have made it a land of choice for cultures full of sunshine.
Within the Massif des Maures perpetuates a unique know-how. Sainte-Maxime invites you to savour its local products that will delight your taste buds through its markets and domains.
Walking through trails and hills, a whole palette of colors, from the silvery gray of the olive trees to the powdery gold of the mimosas. The parasol pine, the olive tree cultivated since the most ancient times, the holm oak and the cork oak, cistus and shrubs are all species that embellish these lands in the Massif des Maures.
Depending on your desires, on your own, with family or friends, you will take the marked paths of Catalugno or Quilladou or will prefer a guided walk organised by the Tourist Office throughout the year.
Numerous hikes or mountain biking paths are available from Sainte-Maxime. Overlooking the bay of Saint-Tropez and beyond the hillsides, you will venture to the land of cicadas.
