About Fréjus

Small but beautifully formed, some of it by the Romans, Fréjus is well located for the French Riviera and the Côte d'Azur, and has some charming attractions and busy regular Wednesday and Saturday markets. Some of the best places to stay in Fréjus are within the small town, but if you’re looking for peace and a chance to escape then you might find some of the best hotels just out of town in the foothills of the Estérel Massif mountains, or towards Saint-Raphaël and the coast.

What Not To Miss

  • Considering the size of the town, the grand Gothic cathedral seems a little out of place, but charmingly so, and the amazingly fanciful medieval frescoes inside are definitely one of a kind.
  • Fréjus also has some impressive Roman ruins, including an aqueduct, an amphitheatre, a theatre, defensive walls and a lighthouse,
  • Fréjus has a chapel decorated by artist and filmmaker Jean Cocteau.
  • The port is still quite large and there are plenty of nice, sandy beaches close to the town, plus there’s also a large water park, the Parc Aquatica - ideal for a family day out.
  • There are plenty of great places to go for a stroll - many with exceptional views of the sea or the mountains.

Don't forget that the town will be very busy during the peak summer months. So if you want to ensure a room in one of the best places to stay in Frejus, do yourself a favour and book well ahead.
