Le Lavandou is a pretty and unpretentious beach resort on 12 kms of coastline in the Var, situated midway between Saint Tropez and Toulon.
With its wide sandy beach, Le Lavandou has been a popular beach resort for many years. It has a nice old town, three busy yacht marinas and a good Thursday market, but don't expect the quaint charm to last into the evening, when the glitzy lights come on for the young to enjoy the nightlife, this is quite a lively town in the summer months! The town has lots of festivals, including the utterly batty Xmas Festival in July called 'Le Lavandou est Fou' (which literally means 'Le Lavandou is crazy). This town really does have a unique, fun, seaside feel to it.
Le Lavandou offers a wide range of accommodation suitable for everyone and for every budget. The village has a good selection of catered and non-catered furnished apartments or villas. You will find the rental of your taste for a holiday by the sea or in the surrounding hills.
The town of Lavandou has plenty of two and three-star hotels offering simple accommodation close to all amenities. For a more upmarket experience, try the Club de Cavaliere, a Relais & Chateaux five star hotel. Hotel de la Fossette is more of a boutique style hotel with four stars.Or the Hotel de la Plage is a three-star hotel right on the beach.
Le Lavandou is a lively town in summer, with bright lights, bars and discos along the waterfront. Wander along and take your pick!
