Le Lavandou is a little fishing village between Toulon and St-Tropez. Le Lavandou is set beautifully at the foot hills of the vigorous Massiv des Maures, France’s most southern mountain range. It is a large and relatively uninhabited area with chestnut, pine and cork oak forests. For a nature lover it is a great experience to drive around in these verdant mountains.

Le Lavandou was in earlier days a small, insignificant fishing village across from the picturesque rocky island, Île d’Or, well known from Hergé’s Tintin and the Black Island.
There is a pleasant atmosphere around the harbour with its huge international marina. Le Lavandou lies in fantastic natural scenery with pleasant, large, sandy beaches as well as numerous smaller beaches, lying in the rocky creeks.
