Frejus is a sprawling Roman town in the Var department in France, just a few miles from the beaches of the Cote d’Azur (Provence). Frejus is a real haven of sport and nature, from the water sports along the coast to the walking, cycling and riding in the mountains behind the town. Taking Frejus accommodation means that you can enjoy the best of the Cote d’Azur without the tourist crowds or vast price tags.
When you first arrive in Frejus, France, the compact town centre just invites you to investigate further. There are so many charming little shops, historical places of interest and mouth-watering restaurants that you can wander through the narrow streets which centre on the Cathedral in the very centre of the town.
Frejus is busiest during the summer months as it is primarily a beach holiday destination, set just a few short miles from the stunning beaches which have made resorts like Cannes and St Tropez world famous. If you walk from the centre of town to the small St Aygulf port, you can then find your ideal little cove beach or sandy inlet from which to enjoy the warmth of the Mediterranean. From the main beaches, sailing, deep sea fishing and scuba diving excursions can all be arranged.
Those taking Frejus accommodation with an interest in the Roman era will be absolutely delighted upon their arrival at a Frejus apartment or villa, as the whole area is inundated with Roman ruins. The most impressive of these is undoubtedly the vast Roman aqueduct towards the outskirts of town. The largest Gallic amphitheatre is also found within the town limits.
Family holidays taking advantage of Frejus accommodation will love the Frejus Zoo and the Aquapark Frejus, just 6km from the Cathedral Square in the town centre. The Frejus area is excellent for walking, as the town is situated on the fertile plain which separates the Esterel Mountains from the Maures Mountains. However, the town does cover a large area, and you may have to travel a few miles outside of town to find the start of the trails.
An apartment in Frejus is the perfect base for exploring the region. Situated equidistant between Cannes and St Tropez, there are a huge number of places to investigate. St Tropez has been the playground for the rich and famous for many years, and is the perfect place to go if you are looking for exquisite shopping, luxurious properties and a glorious beach covered in bronzed bodies.
Summers on the Cote d’Azur are very hot, with temperatures hovering around 36˚C during July and August, which means finding a Frejus property with a pool is like gold dust! Walking holidays from a rural Frejus gite or villa are perfect in the spring and autumn as the bite is taken out of the midday heat, yet temperatures remain delightfully warm. In the height of the summer, crowds get bigger as people take Frejus accommodation to enjoy the famous beaches of the Cote d’Azur.
Frejus Airport (FRJ) is located just outside the town, but it does not receive any direct flights from the UK. Tours (TUF), Marseille (MRS) and Nice (NCE) are all within an hour of a rental apartment in Frejus, and receive direct flights from a huge range of British airports.
