Theoule-sur-Mer, in the much sought after department of Alpes Maritimes on the French Riviera, is build on flats, crags and inlets of the striking red rocks that plunge into the turquoise sea.

In the evenings, swimming along the shallows with a snorkel is an invigorating way to finish the evening, before retiring to one of the many beachfront seafood restaurants or to a glass of wine on the balcony of your Theoule-sur-Mer holiday home.
