Le Lavandou is a wonderful seaside resort, located in the heart of Var, opposite the Iles d'Or (Porquerolles, Port Cros, le Levant), between the Hyères Peninsula on the one hand, and Cavalaire and Saint Tropez to the West (20 to 25km).
What makes Lavandou unique is the extent of the diversity of its beaches, landscapes and seabed, but also the variety of activities which are on offer there.
Around the port of Le Lavandou and its large fine sandy beach, you will find a very lively resort, with various shops and services. By staying in the Municipality of Le Lavandou, but also going to places as renowned as Pramousquier, Cavalière and Cap Nègre, you will discover a Côte d'Azur of spectacular and unspoilt landscapes, of which the Domaine de la Pïnède is an example.
Le Lavandou stretches over 12 kilometres of the coastline and has 12 fine sandy beaches. The beaches benefit from the ""blue flag"" certification, highlighting the quality of the bathing waters.
The Goélia le Domaine de la Pinède complex directly overlooks the beach of Pramousquier, that you can reach via a direct and private footpath leading from the complex to the beach. Just 1km from the complex, you find another of the most beautiful beaches of Le Lavandou, the beach of Cavalière, with entertainment of the centre of a resort and all the nearby shops. The beaches are surrounded by bars and beach restaurants, with beach mat rental.
The beaches of Le Lavandou, surrounded by long fine sandy beaches, like in Cavalière or located in the centre of vast coves surrounded by pine trees, like in Pramousquier, have a lot of water sports: scuba diving or snorkelling in the clear waters, sailing, windsurfing, water skiing, jet skiing, fishing and upward parachuting. In the marina of Le Lavandou (10km from the complex), you can take the vessels letting you visit the Iles d'Or or rent a boat.
From Le Lavandou, you can visit the resorts of Cavalaire sur Mer, Saint-Tropez (25km), the villages of the inland Provence region, like Bormes les Mimosas, or discover the extraordinary seaside botanical garden of Rayol Canadel.
The Municipality of Le Lavandou is very lively, with numerous festivities organised in summer, especially the big concerts and theatre evenings, traditional festivals (for example, Saint John's Festival on 24th June) and an open air cinema. However, if you are a casino fan, you must head to Hyères or Cavalaire sur Mer, twenty kilometres from there.
