La Londe les Maures
Between Hyeres, the Presqu'ile de Giens and St Tropez, the blue flag ot Europe flies high over this seaside resort. La Londe is at the border of the Maures Mountains and faces out onto the lles d'Or (Golden Islands).
This exceptional site makes it the ideal place for tourism and sports both in the summer and off season.
The harbor for pleasure boats contains 1,200 moorings (free parking) and is the perfect point to embark for the islands of Porquerolles or Port-Cros. A true seaside resort on a human scale, there is a large choice of lodging and shops.
The annual entertainment program is broadened in the summer for the pleasure of all.
Graced with all of these charms La Londe can also boast of its products from the rich colorful Provencal land.
The Cotes de Provence AOC here is well known and the flowers (roses, tulips etc.) and herbs, olive groves and cork oaks all add to the appeal of La Londe.
The Miramar, Tamaris and Argentiere beaches extend over 2.5km between Les salins d'Hyeres and Pellegrin beach in Bormes-les-Mimosas (near Estagnol beach and Fort de Bregancon). L'Argentiere Beach will be labeled Tourism and Handicap in 2007.
