Frejus / Saint-Raphael

Frejus / Saint-Raphael

Our next stop was to my cousin Philippes town in Frejus. Our high speed train took us there at an average of 187mph and we managed to sleep a little on the way. It’s a beachy community, very set for tourists, but maybe not so well known. The weather was fantastic as you can see from the pictures, and the ocean water there is the clearest I’ve ever seen. Water temp was about 68 degrees, so a little too chilly for me, but the kids had a great time in it. Philippe took us for a tour down the Cote d’Azur, which included the Plage du Debarquement, another landing beach during World War 2. From that beach you can see Ile d’Or (Island of Gold) where a house that looks like a castle is. Philippe informed us that it’s a private island owned by a Belgian family. It’s the subject of many post cards. On our last day we walked into the town of Frejus and saw the Roman ruins there, an amphitheater and the aqueduct, walked down through the town and hopped a quick train back to our hotel.
