Sainte-Maxime and the marina is a popular seaside resort in the Mediterranean. As the most populous town in the Gulf it is very welcoming and one of the liveliest in the area. It is a lively place all year round. It has more restaurants than other villages in the Gulf area. Here you will have a choice of all kinds of shops, every kind of watersport (sailing, diving, boating, jet-skis, water skiing…) and Golf course. The Théâtre de la Mer and Carré Léon Gaumont cultural centre, are the finest in the Gulf. May be you go for the jackpot at the only Casino in the area!
Sainte-Maxime is named after a nun from Provence, a mother superior in the Callian monastery who lived in the 8th century. The saint is celebrated every year in May during the Bravade, a colourful local festival.
