Seaside Holiday Perfection in Sanary-sur-Mer, France


My sister, Clare, and I ended our family holiday with a couple of days in Sanary-sur-Mer, a 10-minute train ride from Toulon. It was heavenly.


The sun shone and it was warm enough for a swim in the Mediterranean or a picnic on the waterfront.


The harbour was full of sailboats, including some really old ones.


The church has a neo-Byzantine interior with murals depicting Creation on the side aisle ceilings.


The stores lining the narrow alleyways sell interesting, one-of-a-kind crafts.


There are lots of fun activities for kids.



There is a daily market with a marvelous assortment of fruits, vegetables, and cheeses.



The town caters to tourists but doesn’t let that detract from its own identity as a year-round community.


If you’re dreaming of a seaside holiday, Sanary-sur-Mer is the place to be.
