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.
