Théoule sur Mer plage

Nestling in the Esterel massif on a 1049-hectare estate, Théoule offers breathtaking views of the sea, coast and mountains from its red rock creeks and coves. Tucked away in a small cove in the Estérel, Théoule is a peaceful, heavenly seaside resort that has everything to delight holidaymakers.

Superb beaches, coves and inlets

You'll discover turquoise waters licking its sandy beaches shaded by palm trees, and numerous coves and inlets of red Esterel rock. Take a stroll around the pretty little marina with its red stone mini-lighthouse, and admire some of the beautiful, gleaming mansions surrounded by gardens. You won't want to miss the superb crenellated red stone castle, known as the "Château des Mineurs", which is in fact a former 18th-century soap factory converted into a holiday home.

From fishing port to seaside resort

Once the fief of the lord of Mandelieu La Napoule, Eucher Gaulois, in the 5th century, Théoule sur Mer has been a very safe anchorage since antiquity, protected by a watchtower (which was razed in 1648). Subsequently, Théoule was for a long time a small fishing port belonging to the commune of Mandelieu, and only really became populated at the end of the 19th century, before becoming an independent commune in 1929.

A host of walks in the Massif de l'Estérel

The mild climate all year round, the wealth of flora and the diversity of landscapes between the Grande Bleue and the Estérel are increasingly winning over nature lovers... who will be delighted to explore the paths leading to the surrounding peaks (including the Grosses Grues, which rises to 440 metres) or to the Pointe de l'Aiguille: a sublime park of red rocks plunging into a clear sea.
