The beach in Nice is lovely, but sometimes the pebbles make me long for a soft and sandy beach. Right beside the big beach in St. Raphael, we found this lovely little beach, a five minutes walk from the railway station.
Far more interesting though, is the old town of St. Raphael, a small area north of the railway station, built around the old temple.
A small square in the old town.
Beautiful, colourful old buildings, in sloping cobbled little streets.
Small alleys, with even smaller alleys around the corner.
Another charm: not many tourists come here. Why? Maybe they don’t know about this place, or maybe the tourists in this area are in for more mondain shit.
A lovely trompe d’oeuil window.
Olive tree in the market square.
