The Var coast by bike

If you’re looking for an outdoor vacation combined with fun and sporting activities, choose the Var! Take a deep breath, kit yourself out and set off to enjoy the sea air that is so typical of the Var coastline by bike. This really is a region for nature-lovers, and cycling is a perfectly proper way to explore this beautiful land situated between the sea and mountains.

Whether you’re new to cycling or an expert, the bike route along the coast will cast its spell on each and every one of you. It’s a safe and pleasant ride that you can do with the family, which reassures children and parents alike. The relaxing environment with its wealth of different Mediterranean landscapes means that cycling along the Var coastline is now proving to be a huge success story every season, attracting ever greater numbers.

If you cover the entire Var coastline by bike, you’ll cross up to 20 different towns and villages in the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, including Le Rayol-Canadel-sur-Mer, and you’ll touch on almost all of Mediterranean Provence. The path follows the route of the old railway line, which has been converted for use by pedestrians and bikes. Over 80 km have been developed exclusively for cyclists, allowing them to discover the widest possible range of landscapes, including the outstanding coastal area. The layout for the route, which has been completely integrated into the landscape, is a source of great pleasure since it means you can cycle at your own pace with, why not, a dip at each stage of your journey! When the weather is nice and warm, and you’ve been applying yourself to pedalling along the routes that follow the coast, it’s hard not to give in to a good swim in the sea!

A large part of the Var coastline by bike follows the Voie Verte greenway, offering a new approach to nature that is more eco-friendly. And don’t forget you can also explore Ile de Porquerolles by bike, which you can easily hire on site.

At the Terrasses du Bailli, the greenway passes near the hotel. The Terrasses du Bailli provides different types of bikes with all the equipment you need, as well as a map of the cycle paths, to make it easier for you to enjoy your ride. And, if you want to go out for the day, we might well be able to make you a picnic to take with you.

Whatever routes or paths you take, you won’t be disappointed. Cycle tourism has indeed found a place in our new expectations in terms of travel and discovery.

Discover the Mimosa Route from les Terrasses du Bailli

Mimosa, the golden emblem of the Côte d’Azur, grows naturally throughout the south-east of the Var coast, providing a magnificent spectacle of landscapes lit up in the colour of the sun – all of which you can discover from the Terrasses du Bailli along the mythical Mimosa Route.

The first plants were imported by the English in the 19th century to beautify their resorts. The mimosa acclimatised quickly thanks to the mild coastal climate. It’s now immediately recognisable across the entire length of the Mimosa Route thanks to its sparkling yellow colour and bewitching fragrance. Mimosa can be found in the picturesque village of Rayol Canadel, which occupies a beautiful natural site at the foot of the Corniche des Maures with direct access to the Mediterranean and a unique view of the Iles d’Or.

The Mimosa Route is very busy from January to March, when it flowers.

Mimosa is also a plant that boasts many virtues: it rejuvenates and acts as an anti-oxidant, playing a preventive, anti-aging role and bringing benefits to your skin.

The gardens at Domaine du Rayol, located near the Terrasses du Bailli, will offer you a warm welcome, inviting you on a voyage of discovery with organised tours of a natural, protected area of 20 hectares.

Thanks to the Mimosa Route, you’ll encounter a unique plant that has become a symbol of winter in the region in under a century.

Lovers of nature and plants will enjoy taking wonderful family walks along the Mimosa Route with its unparalleled Provencal charm.

The Terrasses du Bailli has several different options tailored to your needs and desires to help you gain access to the route. Don’t hesitate to explore them!
