A beautiful seaside village
Nestled at the foot of the Maures Massif, Cogolin is home to one of the largest ports on the Côte d’Azur: les Marines de Cogolin (Cogolin Marina) and Port Cogolin (Cogolin Harbour).
The village itself
Our dynamic village has all the shops and services you could possibly need for a pleasant stay all year round, while still maintaining its typical provençal character. It also known far and wide for its traditional craftsmanship.
Originially a rural village, Cogolin slowly expanded towards the sea at the end of the 20th Century, with its own Marines de Cogolin and Port Cogolin surrounded by Port-Grimaud and Saint-Tropez.
Although the area consisted solely of marshes initially, the Marines de Cogolin area and its marinas soon transformed into one of the leading water sports sites in the Mediterranean.
Les Marines is also a popular tourist destination, with a vast array of restaurants, bars, shops, services and sea shuttles. There are also a wide range of leisure activities to enjoy during the high season: a cycle path, boat hire for maritime excursions and outings, a water sports centre and a beach with shaded parking.
There are 180 moorings, a few shops and three restaurants on the highly enchanting Port Cogolin site. Likewise, the nearby Giscle Port, reserved for pleasure boaters and local fishermen, has managed to preserve its traditional atmosphere, its simplicity and its annual Fête de Saint-Pierre, a festival that pays homage to the patron saint of fishermen and the sea by the same name.
