Iles d’Hyeres archipelago

Made up of four islands in the Mediterranean, the Iles d’Hyeres archipelago is often referred to as the Islands of Gold, and it’s easy to see why. The national park, which is off-limits to cars, consists of golden beaches, sun-kissed shorelines, pine forests and olive groves, making it the perfect spot for hiking, cycling, swimming and wandering.

Beach hop in St Tropez

St Tropez

Dreaming of a life of fame and fortune? We can’t really help you achieve that, but we can give you a taste of it in St Tropez. Once a quiet fishing village, the town shot to fame in the 1950s thanks to one Brigitte Bardot. While it’s overrun by tourists during the summer months, it’s still possible to experience the real St Tropez in the low season – sunning yourself on a quiet beach, sipping an aperitif in a cobbled plaza, or indulging in fresh-caught seafood in a beachfront restaurant.
