Saint Raphael is a charming marina town, situated between Cannes and Saint-Tropez, around 60 kilometres from Nice. Reclining beside the azure waters, with a picturesque mountainous backdrop, it is easy to see why Saint Raphael is such an attractive destination. St Raphael is one of the 'calmer' resorts on the coast, and it is also one of the oldest. There is evidence that wealthy Romans used to spend their summers here 2000 years ago! Today, French nationals and tourists alike, are attracted to its demure, relaxed ambience, as well as some of the most famous scuba-diving spots on the French Riviera.
