Where to stay in La Seyne-sur-Mer?

The vacations are approaching and you want to enjoy the charms of the Var? Then discover the best areas to stay in La Seyne-sur-Mer

Located on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea in the Var department, La Seyne-sur-Mer is a beautiful seaside resort, as well as a charming fishing and yachting port. Neighboring Toulon and the department’s second-largest city, it is an economic hub, a place of culture and history, and a major port overlooking the Toulon harbor.

Its exceptional development is due to its former shipyards, among the largest in France. Active from 1835 to 1985, when the last ship was built, the shipyards closed for good in 1989, triggering a major economic crisis in the town. The natural and cultural wonders of the area were exploited, and the focus shifted to seaside activities. The beautiful resorts of Tamaris and Les Sablettes emerged, and the historic heritage and charming Provencal setting were showcased.

For your stay, La Seyne-sur-Mer has a lot to offer: farniente and charming beaches, picturesque restaurants and cafés in the south-east, museums and historic forts, wild and unspoilt territories in the south of the commune! If you’re wondering where to stay in La Seyne-sur-Mer, there are plenty of accommodation options to choose from.
