You’ll need to organise your own bike hire when staying here. Things to consider are the type of bike you want to rent such as road, mountain, hard trail and/or an electric bike; and whether you’ll need helmets and protective clothing with your rental. You’re best off choosing a shop that is close to your accommodation for ease of access, and making it quicker to return the bike and pay at the end. Some companies may also deliver so it’s worth looking at all the options.

Le Lavandou is a pretty and unpretentious beach resort on 12 kms of coastline in the Var, situated midway between Saint Tropez and Toulon. The closest train station is at Toulon,and you can take bus 7801 to Le Lavandou from either Saint Tropez or Toulon. You can also take a boat from Saint Tropez to Le Lavandou.
This beach resort is absolutely bursting with places to eat- many with pretty views of beach or the boats bobbing in the marina. Bistr'eau Ryon is a good pick on the beachfront, while La Farigoulette is a quirky, friendly inn where the walls are covered in memorabilia and knick knacks- and the always changing menu is just as interesting!

Le Lavandou has had a history of destruction. Burnt down several times by the Bourbons and frequently pillaged by pirates and navies, this quiet fishing village was finally bombed in 1944. As a result, there isn't a great deal to see when it comes to old buildings, as it has all been rebuilt. The Church of Saint Louis is worth a look, but apart from that it's probably time to relax and hit the beach!
