When you come on holiday to La Pierre Vert at Fréjus, you can explore our Côte d’Azur coastline, further inland, Haut Var Verdon and Pays de Fayence (https://www.paysdefayence.com/itineraires/circuit-velo-eurovelo-8//), the Maures, Sainte-Baume, Estérel Massifs and the plains and valleys of Provence Verte.
