Esterel

With its splendid red- and ochre-coloured contours, the Massif de l’Esterel makes for an astonishing show, which can be enjoyed from wherever you're looking at it. Beneath its cliffs, your Sandaya campsite in the Var makes for a great place to stop with the family, very close to the beaches of the Mediterranean, so as to make the most both of lovely dips in the sea and adventures in the midst of nature on the peaks of the Esterel. Come and get up high from your campsite beside the Mediterranean and take in a breathtaking panorama from one of the loveliest areas of the Côte d’Azur!

The story of the Esterel Massif

The story of the Esterel begins 250 million years ago, when the land was still attached to the African continent. Adrift beneath the Mediterranean, the massif ended up forming the south-eastern Var, and one of its sections even initiated the formation of Corsica! The Esterel's past can still be seen today via its strikingly contrasting scenery and flamboyant contours, caused by a volcanic rock called rhyolite. Having always been occupied by various civilisations from the Mediterranean basin, the paths of the Esterel are marked by Man's presence, whose footsteps can still be seen here. You too can come and take a journey back in time during your camping holiday on the Var coast! And after a day spent discovering all sorts of new things, you can return to your family-friendly Sandaya campsite and soak up all the comfort of the camping sector!

Hiking in the Esterel

The region around the Esterel is home to all sorts of hiking circuits that can be enjoyed by all, which visitors and residents enjoy using whatever the time of year. From the Cap du Dramont to the Pic de l’Ours, scale the peaks of this ancient massif and enthrone yourself on the slopes above the bay of Saint-Raphaël! Head with your children for le Rastel d’Agay, where the direction from which you arrive affords amazing views over the coastline of the Var, from the bay of Agay to the gulf of la Napoule. And if you want to get up a little higher still? Then follow the steep paths that take you to the famous Pic de l’Ours, or have a look around Mont Vinaigre, at the very top of the Esterel Massif! And back in your luxury campsite, sooth those feet in the heated swimming pool of the water park; you'll have really deserved a bit of relaxation!

Le Lac de l’Ecureuil in the Esterel

With easy access for everyone, a hike to the Lac de l’Ecureuil is an opportunity to get up really close to the curious landscapes of the Esterel. Due to its very gentle ups-and-downs, smaller campers will not find it at all difficult to keep up! Leaving from the Belle Barbe pass, it takes just a few minutes to reach the Mal Infernet ravine with its canyon of red rocks. And after this, the Grenouillet River will be beside you throughout your walk. A final turn fringed with holm oaks opens out to a lovely panorama over the Lac de l’Ecureuil, which is an opportunity for a rustic break beside the water. Beneath the summer sunshine, in the heart of the nature yet just a few kilometres from the beaches of Saint-Raphaël, enjoy a delicious picnic in the peaceful setting of this little bit of paradise! And to get ready for your lunchtime picnic, things couldn't be simpler: in the morning before you set off, stop off at the mini market in your Sandaya campsite and indulge yourself!

All kinds of family activities on the peaks!

Far from the hubbub of the city looking out over the waves of the Mediterranean, the Esterel Massif provides a setting that's naturally perfect for getting away from it all. Take your family to its tall peaks for a deep breath of thyme-scented fresh air, and take in the amazing panorama over the bay of Saint-Raphaël. Just the place to quench your thirst for adventure and get your fill of outdoor activities with the kids! Hire a mountain bike and enjoy an energetic outing along the purpose-built routes, have a go at climbing before diving into the crystal-clear water of the Mediterranean, or enjoy an outing on horseback, so you have lots of time to take in the huge diversity of flame-coloured landscapes. This summer, the Esterel will be where you'll be enjoying all your family adventures! And if you still want more, there's no need to panic, as your Sandaya campsite with its water park has what it takes to meet the needs of all campers: dive into the heated pool or hurtle down the waterslides, play football matches on the multisports ground or organise table tennis tournaments with your little ones. All sorts of activities and fun await you!
