If you are looking for a family holiday somewhere on the Bay of St Tropez then the Pierre and Vacances holiday village, Les Restanques is well worth considering. I can say that with confidence because we just spent a week there ourselves and I’m very happy to recommend it, having had a great time!
The holiday village has about 500 apartments and villas and is set out on a hill overlooking St Tropez and the bay of Saint Tropez. The villas and apartments have been built in the style of the region and the 25 acre site has been planted with a mass of Acacia trees, Oleanders, Agapanthus etc and is very attractive.
There is a very large wave pool which was a huge hit with my children. If you are looking for something quieter there is a smaller pool nearby which I found great for an early morning swim. There are also tennis courts, football pitch, volley ball, Roller Park etc available and an outdoor theatre where regular events take place.
A childrenâ€™s club and teenagers club are also available in holiday time and whilst the kids are occupied there is a Spa where you can go for massages etc.
We stayed a week and found it a perfect spot for exploring the Cote dâ€™Azur. We visited St Tropez and Cannes. The lovely Grimaud and Port Grimaud were just on the doorstep and travelling inland a little are the most beautiful villages of Gassin and Ramatuelle.
Very close to Les Restanques is an attraction park with some terrifying looking rides, also a very large supermarket and not far away at Ste Maxime is a large Aquapark.
I think my favourite part though was sitting on our terrace for breakfast and dinner and watching the large yachts moving in and out of the bay and admiring St Tropez all lit up every evening – perfect.
