Do not know where to go for summer? Come to Hyeres, a city that becomes everything you want it to be! Enjoy water sports and lazing by the sea on its paradisiacal and sandy beaches or take advantage of its matchless condition for sailing. If sunbathing is not your thing, there is a lovely old town that winds up the hills. Though, Hyeres has also been known to be the muse of multiple artists such as Picasso, Giacometti and Jean Cocteau who all spent their time at the Villa Noailles located on a roost above the town. You should visit the old town, a picture-book Province with wooden shutters, street markets, and restaurant terraces surrounded by the ochre walls of old buildings and a fortified chapel built by the Knight Templar. Wine lover? This medieval town is perfect for you! Province is known for its Rosé wine, and you can taste the different Rosé wines easily as there are 17 vineyard domains to visit and taste their own wine. In addition to these paradisiacal sides, you must-see the Giens Peninsula and the sensational islands of Hyeres which are natural wonders. Embark on a ferry and sail in the direction of the gorgeous archipelago at the South and East of this peninsula. There, you will find different islands with original characteristics. Hyeres will always satisfy everyone as it has everything you would wish for. So, book your flight and enjoy your stay there!
