A wild and abundant natural landscape that must be preserved and cherished.
The landscapes of the Gulf of Saint-Tropez and the Maures Massif have captivated people from all over the world. But beyond the most famous locations in the region, you can also unwind in more private, and sometimes highly unique, areas away from the hustle and bustle of its towns and cities, which you can discover at your own pace. Enjoy this other side to the Gulf of Saint-Tropez through stunning walks and hikes.
Our area is surrounded by magnificent woodlands, starting from the top of our hills and mountains, then passing down through forests lined with cork oak trees, heathers, strawberry trees, rockroses and mimosa.
Did you know that Le Rayol-Canadel-sur-Mer is the second point along the Route du Mimosa (15 km mark), a road that runs from Bormes-les- Mimosas to Grasse, the centre of the French perfume industry?
Very popular among tourists, this 130 km route is at its finest between January and March. At this time of year, the areas along this road epitomise a typical Côte d’Azur winter, against the backdrop of clear blue skies, a perfectly yellow sun and a mild climate. Revel in the beauty of the Côte d’Azur along this 130 km road, which winds between the coast and forest massifs, showcasing the region’s authenticity, unique natural landscapes, festive atmosphere, and remarkable heritage through the fragrant aromas of mimosa.

The area is also incredibly biodiverse. The vast array of spaces – waterways, open spaces and forests – has paved the way for a wide range of ecosystems, which are home to protected species rarely found in the Mediterranean.
But this extraordinary environment remains fragile. Due to droughts in our region, we must be vigilant according to the time of year and act responsibly all year round.
