For an interesting and relatively inexpensive Saturday, spend the day in the Cathedral Square. There's a lovely mixed market in the morning, and then in the afternoon the wedding parties arrive to celebrate their nuptials at the Maire and at the Cathedral. In one afternoon we saw four fabulous weddings, one where all the guests wore traditional...more

Looks so nice and it has such an ancient and troubled history. The baptistery was built in the 5th century, making it oldest in Provence and one of the oldest in France. The first bishop of Fréjus was Saint Leontinus of Fréjus which has started first time the church. The church developed again from the 13th century.more
A walk in Fréjus is a breeze of fresh air, though still in the Côte d’Azur department you fell like you're already arrived in Provence. Technically speaking Fréjus is in the administrative region of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur which includes Côte d'Azur and most of the provencal cities.more

A lovely cheese shop selling over 150 varieties of cheese. At lunchtime they do "mixed cheese plates" - about five varieties of cheese with bread and salad, washed down by a glass of wine. The staff are incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about their wares - which are delicious! Euro 11 Cheese plate - lovey strong unusual cheeses.more

Being able to dine outside means nearly everything to me. That means my dog can come along, and if there's a nice view, all the better. Les Micocouliers has this as it's situated in the square across from the cathedral and the food was fresh and yummy. Luckily, it was warm too :-) There were 4 of us plus my dog all together and everyone enjoyed...more

I'm not suggesting you take a donkey to Fréjus. :-)
I took the train from Cannes to St. Raphael, then took the bus to La Chapelle Cocteau. You can take the train to Fréjus, but the train stops more often at St. Raphael, and sometimes runs express.
From the train station, go to platform 7 and catch the number 13. It's off the beaten path and takes about a half hour. Make sure to ask the driver where to catch the bus for the return trip.
Call the chapel for seasonal hours so you don't make the trip in vain!

Who knows better then the French to make a deliscious wine. Frejus has a few winehouses and one deserves special attention as it is in warm connection with the ancient past of the town. "Les Celliers des Romains" (the Roman cellars) is practically a neighbor of the Arena and has a wide variation of wines and liquors. During most working days...more
Especially the first world-war (the Great War as the French call it still) made enormous amounts of victims that fanatically went to the horrifying front where heroism and bravery were killed together with millions of young souls. Every city, town and village has lost citizens. Every city, town and village remembers them with large monuments in...more

The old towns have often little amounts of green. Many people decorate their balconies and windows with flowers or let ivy climb along some walls. But trees and flowerbeds are only available in a few larger squares. Anyway, I found it very pleasant that in Frejus there were - obviously - very old olive trees hidden in a few corners. A very pleasant...more
To really catch the spirit of Frejus, do not only focis on the two main items in this wonderful ancient town. Walk around and enjoy the atmosphere that hangs in almost all centre alleys, streets, places, squares and corners. Admire the old "unknown" buildings and taste history. In the picture for example is a very old church that is situated on the...more
I had to add this picture to really show the giant ball of wool!i've lived mainly in cities so this serendipitous event was such an awesome experience for me, and i got that feeling like when i was a child - of being emotionally tickled awake; i was completely awe struck and happy.more
Don't be fooled by this tiny, ancient village. It's not like any other. If you pay attention, you'll see the beautiful details...
Fondest memory: Awe inspiring hike in the valley where you can find the Barrage de Malpasset. (please see the MUST SEE activities)
