Things To Do
Water, water everywhere
Théoule is all about the water, the beaches are beautiful and you can find just about any activity on or by the water that you can think of in this area. With Madame Vacances' accommodation you will find yourself in the perfect location to explore the watery scene, with the Plage de L'Aiguille located a pleasant 4km walk away if you want to explore the region on foot. The azure water with red rocks and clean sandy beaches make it a quintessential Mediterranean beach. The beach is out on a point and has easy access with paved paths leading you down to long stretches of sandy beach. The water is clear and shallow, so it's perfect for small children to swim and for snorkelling.
If you want to be more adventurous there are various water sports you can take part in, including water-skiing and diving. There are restaurants and snack bars and also toilets, so it is perfect for a family day out. The beaches on this coast are busy and popular in summer but still accessible and pleasant, plus parking is free. Walking along the point takes you to rocky coves further along the coast. Whether you want adventurous climbing or beach relaxation you have everything you want here.
There are other beaches to choose from, all within easy distance from Théoule-sur-mer, including the Plage Petite Fontaine, which is a 5-minute walk from the centre, or head to the Plage de Suveret for more remote beach experiences. There is an excellent centre dedicated to water sports where you can scuba and snorkel and try out all kinds of water activities at the Centre de Plongee Mediterranee.
Old Town life
Théoule is small but a pleasant place to stroll around, taking in the harbour and gardens or sitting at a café enjoying the sunshine. Markets are held every Thursday and Sunday morning at the Port, and on Fridays in the centre of the town. You can find local food and hand-made pottery here, or simply take in the buzz and atmosphere.
If you want to treat yourself, head to the Tiara Spa where you can be pampered and massaged and enjoy all the health and wellness activities they offer.
One of the noted attractions of Théoule-sur-mer is the bizarre bubble house owned by Pierre Cardin, an architectural intrigue popular with tourists. Shows and concerts are held here in summer months.
Théoule is near enough to Cannes that you can enjoy the entertainments this famous town has to offer; in the summer months there are regular firework displays over the bay at Cannes and many music festivals held on the beaches as well as the famous film festival.
For an energetic day out, the neighbouring Saint-Cézaire-sir-Siagne offers rock climbing in the Siagne Gorge starting at Eu30, or, heading 30km away, you can go caving in Caille or swim with dolphins in Antibes. There are plenty of boat cruises and trips mostly leaving from Cannes, taking you to St. Tropez or in a round trip where you can relax and enjoy the sparkling Mediterranean all around you.
For an original experience, a trip to Grasse would take you to the Galimard Perfumery where you can take courses in perfume creation and learn from the experts on how to original fragrances.
Eating and Drinking
The best thing about eating in Théoule-sur-mer is the location. There are plenty of eateries placed in stunning locations; overlooking private beaches or on terraces with views tumbling down to the setting sun over the Mediterranean. There are lots of choices in the town itself, with typical food from the Riviera with fresh seafood and locally caught fish as well as seasonal vegetables and olives grown in the region.
For a fancy night out, head to neighbouring town Mandelieu-La Napoule Chez Loulou for typical French Riviera food in a gorgeous setting with a renowned chef who uses seasonal food and local meats accompanied by excellent wine.
Head to the Beach Bar for a drink overlooking a private beach or the Tiara Miramar Beach Hotel and Spa's bar comes highly recommended where you can drink cocktails poolside with DJs providing entertainment come night time. The bistro Red Roc leads right to the beach and is a great place for a relaxed evening meal. The L'Air du Temps overlooks the bay of Cannes or if you're with a family there are plenty of family-friendly pizza restaurants frequented by locals.
