You'll find plenty of places to visit near Saint-Raphael: Golf de Roquebrune Resort (in Roquebrune-sur-Argens) and Waterworld lake of gaudrade (in Puget-sur-Argens). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Plage du Chateau, take a memorable tour with Tours, identify plant and animal life at Lion of the Sea (Lion de Mer), and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chapelle Saint-Francois de Paule.
