About the Area
Whilst Le Dattier is not a large site by French standards it is a picturesque and friendly 4 star site ideally located in natural surroundings on the outskirts of Frejus. Within easy reach are long well kept sandy beaches, secluded bays, fascinating ports, famous coastal resorts and the beautiful hinterland of Provence with its old villages and ancient traditions.
The trees, foliage and plants are a feature of the site and offer a welcome degree of shade in the hot weather together with a varying array of colour during the year.
There are 2 swimming pools on site, one with a baby pool. In the main season both will be open but at other times it varies depending on how full the site is. However, there is always at least one pool open for the whole season.
Also on site is a bar/restaurant, tennis court and boules area, table tennis and children's play area with Donkey enclosure, laundry facilities and Reception office where English is spoken.
There is a bus stop a few metres outside the site entrance.
A Leader Price supermarket, about 100m from the site entrance, is open six days a week between 8.30 and 20.00 and Sunday mornings between 9.00 and 13.00. It is closed on Bank holidays. (These times are subject to change so please check).
About 1 mile away there is a small supermarket “Proxi” which is worthy of note as it is open almost all the time.
There are four other supermarkets within 3 miles of the site: Carrefour on the road to Pugens; Geant on the road to St Tropez; Intermarche (closest) on the road to Frejus old town and Casino also on the road to Frejus old town – just pass Intermache. The Carrefour and Geant are by far the biggest and in our opinion the best.
Markets take place almost every day within Frejus or close by. Reception will be able to give you more detailed information.
The local attractions are too numerous to list out and vary during the season but the reception office has a good selection of animation.
A few favourite excursions from Le Dattier are:
Beach at St Aygulf - A long and sandy beach with great swimming. Follow signs to St Tropez, about 2 miles past Geant. It is a pay car park for half or full day (June to Sept).
St Tropez by boat from St Raphael or Ste Maxime - The road to St Tropez is very scenic but always busy and at a standstill during the high season. If you book up early enough the return boat trip to St Tropez from St Raphael is less stressful but only sails 3 or 4 times a day. We find it is better to drive to Ste Maxime. It's on the road to St Tropez but before the traffic really builds up and offers boats across the bay to St Tropez every 20 to 30 minutes for most of the day. Details and prices can be obtained from reception.
Scenic Drive to Cannes - Drive around the coast road to Cannes and back via the 'N' road or motorway through the Esterel. If you go this way you are on the right side of the road to pull in for the magnificent views of the Mediterranean. Tip: Avoid weekends in high season.
The Hills of Provence - Turn right out of Le Dattier and drive into the hills, stopping at the wonderful villages to experience the culture and peacefulness of these unspoilt retreats. There are many circuits possible and only you can decide the most suitable but the following villages are we believe well worth a visit; Cotignac, Villecroze, les Arcs, Callas, Mons, and Montauroux to name a few.
Verdon Gorges & Lac de Ste Croix - Considered by many to be the unofficial eight wonder of the world and if you only do one day-trip inland this should be top of the list. The scenery is spectacular and we believe best appreciated by taking a clockwise circuit around the gorge.
Monaco and Monte Carlo - We would suggest you go via the motorway and return from Monaco to Nice by one of the three Corniche roads. The highest one is considered the best. Absolutely breathtaking especially early evening as the sun goes down. Pick up the motorway at Nice for the remainder of the return journey.
St Raphael to Frejus by foot - Drive to the Marina east of St Raphael centre (parking usually free) and walk along the front all the way to Frejus Marina and back. About 6 miles but the only way to take it all in.
There are many more excursions, walks and places we could mention but the above should wet your appetite for this lovely part of the world.
Travelling to Frejus
Easyjet, BA and Ryanair all fly from the UK to Nice where hire cars are available. It is about 45 minutes by road to Le Dattier. Train and coach connections are also available between Nice and Frejus.
We drive down from the Calais or Dunkerque ferry terminal. If you drive straight down it will take about 13 to 14 hours including stops and using the autoroutes (tolls about £75 - £80 each way).
We usually break our journey with an overnight stop either just north of Lyon or north of Grenoble if we are taking the scenic route through the mountains. For hotels on route the "Louvre Hotels" chain offer a good choice. Premiere Classe, Campanile and Kyriad being the most popular and easy to book up online. As a guide Premiere Class hotels (the cheapest) are about £40 to £50 a night for two including continental breakfast.
A tourist tax of 0.66 Euros per day per person (13 and over) is payable to the site together with a compulsory one of payment of Euro 25 per party per stay and is not included in our prices.
