Discover Sanary-sur-Mer

The Authenticity of Provence, the Charm of the Riviera 

The typical town of Sanary-sur-Mer has one of the most authentic fishing ports of the French Mediterranean coast. Wander through its pedestrian streets and discover its charms: the mosaic of colors of the buildings bathed in sunshine, the warm welcome of the local population or the small, shady, timeless squares with the refreshing sound of water flowing from the fountains and the numerous arts and crafts workshops, design and fashion boutiques.

This very ancient natural harbour, set in the heart of the town, is permanent home to around 100 heritage vessels dating back as far as 1895, plus some old Provencal fishing boats locally known as «Pointu» (sharp boats : so-name for their pointed bows and sterns). Twelve professional fishermen continue to sell their day’s catch every day on the port. A traditional Provencal market is held every morning. 

Sanary is also known for having provided shelter for famous exiled German artists and writers between 1933 and 1942. Just to name a few : Thomas Mann, Arnold Zweig, Franz Hessel and Bertolt Brecht.
