Les Issambres is an excellent seaside community on the Cote d’Azur, southern France, located between the famous resorts of Sainte Maxime and Frejus. Les Issambres is a beautifully clean coastal retreat, bursting with facilities and services, located right on the Cote d’Aruz’s stunning beaches, and with excellent access to all the famous resorts of Provence.
Les Issambres lies on a beautiful stretch of the Cote d’Azur, blessed with a great number of beaches which have somehow managed to avoid the crowds of mass tourists that descend to some of the more famous beaches in the area during the height of the summer. Les Issambres, as well as being a wonderful place to sunbathe and swim, is an excellent windsurfing and kite-surfing beach. There are actually a string of fantastic beaches along the coast of Les Issambres, as well as facilities for enjoying a vast range of water sports, including surfing, wind surfing, water skiing and para-sailing.
Les Issambres Port is the best place to start your search for water sports centres, especially if you are looking for sailing, scuba diving of deep sea fishing trips into the Mediterranean. There are also regular ferry services to St Tropez leaving the port, allowing you visit the beach resort of the rich and famous without having to try and navigate the busy coastal roads during the summer.
There is no need to venture far from your Les Issambres villa during your holiday as all the amenities and entertainment you could need are right here on your doorstep. There are a great range of bars, restaurants and beach cafes in Les Issambres, as well as a lively market every Monday. During the summer, there is also an artisans market during Thursday and Sunday evenings, which offers a fantastic place to find local crafts, art and wines.
The deep pine forests of the Massif des Maures are only a short drive from a Les Issambres property too, meaning that budding walkers and mountain bikers can use a Les Issambres villa as an idyllic beach base for magnificent walking, cycling, climbing and mountain biking holidays in Provence.
The beach resorts of Sainte Maxime and Frejus are both around 15minutes from a self catering Les Issambres holiday rental. Both resorts are wonderfully free from mass tourists, offering a hint of traditional Provencial charm, yet filled with excellent water sport centres, excellent restaurants and a huge range of shopping streets, well worth investigation from a holiday rental property in Les Issambres.
Les Issambres is primarily a summer destination, but with glorious conditions lasting all the way from early May until late October, there is plenty of time to enjoy the best of Les Issambres. During July and August, temperatures reach their warmest, with daily temperatures peaking well into the mid or high 30’s (˚C). Even during winter, golf, walking and mountain biking holidays continue, as daily temperatures remain between 10 and 15˚C.
Nice International Airport (NCE) is just 70km from a Les Issambres villa, and luckily for those of us heading to a haven on the Cote d’Azur from Britain, is served by a great range of inbound services from airports across Britain.
