Enjoy the great outdoors at the Domaine du Bailli

Did you know? The Var is the nature destination par excellence. Blessed with an outstanding natural heritage, the Var invites you to enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities all year round under the blue skies of the south of France.

The Domaine du Bailli consists of three different establishments with different services that are sure to please even the most demanding clients: come and stay in the heart of nature.

Open all year round, the hotel les Terrasses du Bailli*** and la Résidence du Bailli have one thing in common: they offer stays surrounded by nature. Le Bailli de Suffren**** Hotel shares the same common theme, with stays from April to October.

The three establishments, located between the land and sea, offer a wide range of genuine outdoor experiences for anyone who wants an alternative way of traveling.

You have a choice: whale and dolphin watching, hiring a hybrid bike or electric mountain bike, going horse riding, snorkeling or kayaking, or taking a trial dive…
Numerous hikes are organised from the village of Rayol or in the surrounding area in early fall during « la Semaine Varoise de la Randonnée Pédestre » a special hiking week that runs from Saturday, September 26 to Saturday, October 3, 2020.

Enjoy a guided walk, taking advantage of the knowledge of an accompanying guide who will teach you about the flora and fauna as well as the region’s cultural and historical heritage.

The Var is also a hotspot for scuba diving. The dive sites in the Var, which are renowned across the world, include the Port-Cros National Park, which is a “paradise on water”. Whales and dolphins (8 different species), groupers, barracudas, large mother-of-pearls – all at a depth of 3000 m deep in clear waters to the delight of snorkelers and divers.
Book your stay surrounded by nature – choose the establishment that suits you best and discover a protected and unspoiled natural landscape.

That little extra: staying in the great outdoors on the Var coast means good weather all year round!

Holidays by the sea at the Domaine du Bailli

The seaside is always the right holiday solution in summer or winter.

Le Domaine du Bailli which is located between St Tropez and Le Lavandou, has something for everyone. With three different accommodation categories, three different concepts and three different types of stay, you’ll find a holiday that is made for you so you can enjoy a seaside vacation!

Is the winter getting you down? Would you like to recharge your batteries?

Well, don’t delay – book your holiday by the sea at the Domaine du Bailli.

It’s really enjoyable in winter to make the most of the sun as you take a stroll by the sea or along the coast on foot or even by bike, following the greenway that connects St Cyr-sur-Mer and St Raphaël.

It’s particularly pleasant out of season to be able to feel you’re “alone in the world” and to have exclusive enjoyment of the place far from the hustle and bustle of the high season, taking the time quite simply to discover the coast at your own pace.

A seaside holiday: the ideal period to find out all about slow tourism.

The Var coast boasts a rich landscape, culture and gastronomy. You can visit tourist sites such as Thoronet Abbey, the mythical village of de Saint-Tropez or the famous Jardin des Méditerranées (just 500 meters from the Domaine du Bailli) all year long. It’s also nice under a winter sun at lunchtime to make the most of the beaches that are open throughout the year, tasting specialties from Provence. The dishes are generally made using olive oil and sun-kissed vegetables accompanied by wines from the Var, without forgetting those succulent Solliès figs.

The Var coast is one of those destinations where the sun and mild temperatures are there to be enjoyed throughout the year, and not just in summer.
Don’t wait to book your next seaside holiday at the Domaine du Bailli.
