About the surrounding area

Once the most important port in the Mediterranean under Roman Emperor Julius Caesar, the town of Frejus is today a pretty town of pastel coloured buildings and historic monuments, with extensive Roman ruins and a marina. The town's centre, framed around a lovely cathedral square full of cafes, is 2kms from the beach, which runs along into the popular seaside resort of neighbouring Saint Raphael. The main appeal of the town is the ruins of the ancient Roman aqueduct, as well as a 10,000 seat amphitheatre and a theatre which both host atmospheric concerts and theatre performances during the summer months.

Towns nearby

The ancient Roman port town of Frejus borders the resort town of Saint Raphael on that gorgeous red rock stretch of coast between Cannes and Saint Tropez. Frejus sits on the major trainline that runs all along the Riviera, and is serviced by international airports at Nice, Toulon-Hyeres and Marseilles. You can also hop on the express bus to Frejus (No 20) from Nice, Cannes or Aix-en-Provence.

Restaurants nearby

For Michelin starred food you'll have to head to nearby Saint Raphael or Sainte-Maxime, but that's not to say there aren't some very good restaurants in Frejus! This town has plenty of cafes and restaurants to choose between. L'Amandier is your best bet for gourmet food, Le Mérou Ardent does good seafood, and La Bastide du Clos des Roses is a lovely restaurant set in villa gardens just outside Frejus.

Sights nearby

The baptistery of Frejus Cathedral was built in the 5th century, making it the oldest in the Provence region and one of the oldest in France. In town, you'll also find the Cocteau Chapel, conceived by Jean Cocteau In 1961, while the Archaeology Museum is a good starting point to discover the Roman heritage in the area. In the south east of the old city is the 3rd century Porte d’Orée, the only remaining arcade of monumental Roman thermal baths, while if you head north you'll find the ruins of a Théâtre Romain and the old amphitheatre. North east, towards La Tour de Mare, you'll pass a section of a 40 km long aqueduct, which once carried water to Roman Fréjus.

Things to Do nearby

The park of the ancient Roman aqueduct is a wonderful place for walking, picnicking and bike riding. There is also a safari park near the city (Parc Zoologique de Frejus), and for family entertainment you can also visit the water park Aqualand Frejus, the biggest waterpark along the Riviera. It's worth taking a 7km hike up to the ruins of the Malpasset dam,which broke in the floods of 1959, killing more than 400 people in Frejus. For longer hikes, both the Esterel Mountains and the Maures range have wonderful hikes (including the GR51), but they are not easily accessed from Frejus town by foot as the area is very built up.

Beaches nearby

The beach at Frejus has a 7 mile coastline, linking up with the popular coastal resort of San-Raphael. Scuba diving and windsurfing are just two of the many watersports on offer, and there are miles of wide sandy beaches and calm waters for the family to enjoy.

Golf-clubs nearby

The closest golf course to Frejus is the Golf and Tennis Club Valescure just outside Saint Raphael, with an 18 hole, par 68 course. This is a very short course with narrow fairways, small greens and a number of water hazards. There are also excellent courses in Cannes, Saint Maxime and Saint Tropez.

Book My Round

Nightlife nearby

Frejus isn't known for its nightlife, but there is a nice buzz and some live music in local bars on summer nights- as well as the concerts at the Roman amphitheatre and theatre of course! The nightclub "La Playa" at Frejus-Plage is the spot to go for dancing by the beach- but if you want a big night out then the clubs of Saint Tropez or Cannes are definitely your best bet.

Cycle Hire

You’ll need to organise your own bike hire when staying here.  Things to consider are the type of bike you want to rent such as road, mountain, hard trail and/or an electric bike; and whether you’ll need helmets and protective clothing with your rental. You’re best off choosing a shop that is close to your accommodation for ease of access, and making it quicker to return the bike and pay at the end. Some companies may also deliver so it’s worth looking at all the options.

Visitor comments

  • "What a find! We booked this as a St Valentine package, and it was outstanding value. Warm reception; beautiful large suite; champagne and a rose in the room. The restaurant staff were equally welcoming and professional. An outstandingly good meal, and of course, more champagne. The chef had created a well balanced menu, with excellent presentation. He even used parsnips - considered a great vegetable in England, but normally thought of as pig food in France. Even the French can learn! Breakfast was efficiently served in the room, and the coffee arrived piping hot, with a good selection of breads and Viennoiseries." - Trip Advisor
  • "We have just got back from this hotel in Frejus and once again were very pleased with our stay. The staff are so friendly and helpful and the restaurant was lovely. We felt that everyone was working so hard to maintain the high standards of service quality and value and we hope to return again soon." - Trip Advisor
  • "We just spent a splendid three nights in this hotel; booked a standard room but the hotel upgraded us to a suite complimentary. Thank you. We could not fault this hotel; nice staff, clean spacious rooms, beautiful garden area with pool and wonderful French cuisine served in the dining room of an evening - we ate dinner in there twice and were not disappointed - food was lovely." - Trip Advisor
