Nestled at the foot of the Maures Hills, in La Croix-Valmer-Cavalaire-sur-Mer Bay – a little natural paradise in the Saint-Tropez Gulf – the village of La Croix-Valmer gently slopes right down to the sea. Relaxation and leisure activities are the order of the day here, including mountain biking, sailing, deep-sea diving, boat trips, beach volley and more – or simply chilling out! Walking, cycling and riding enthusiasts in particular will enjoy the waymarked trails. La Croix-Valmer has been awarded the “Station Classée Tourisme” label thanks to its varied tourist offering in accommodation, entertainment, transport and accessibility, as well as for environmental quality.
there are magnificent fine sandy beaches just a few minutes from Hotel La Bienvenue: Débarquement and Sylvabelle beaches, both 2km from the hotel; Gigaro beach, on the edge of the coastal conservation area, 4km from the village; and just a little further away, the completely unspoiled Place Brouis, as well as Héraclée and Briande beaches. La Croix-Valmer beaches have been flying the Blue Flag for a number of years, with a dedicated monitoring service to check bathing water quality.

While the beach has attracted show-biz celebrities and jet-setters for over fifty years now, Ramatuelle also features secluded creeks, monuments (including the Saracen gate and old gaols), and hidden treasures: Camarat Lighthouse, the remains of a Napoleon artillery battery, La Briande dolmen, and more.
