A holiday atmosphere
Let’s go to the extreme south of France (Languedoc-Roussillon), at the edge of the Mediterranean, between the sea and the mountains in a profusion of lights and colours within a protected environment. Get into the Mediterranean culture and discover a world where gastronomy and leisure rhyme with sun and pleasure.
While in Saint-Cyprien, take an stroll around the old town with its winding lanes and its museum “Collections de Saint-Cyprien”. The Collections exhibit some paintings which date back to the 19th and 20th centuries (Utrillo, Marquet, Modigliani). They are remarkable works of art which have never been shown to the public before.
Thanks to its label “Famille Plus”, Saint-Cyprien is now known for truly pampering both parents and their children. There are activities for everyone !
For children there's circus and theatre courses, art workshops, tennis, football, rugby, sailing, golf and riding courses. During the summer, “post-beach” activities are organised from 6pm to 8pm. Completely free and open to all, these activities will bring the whole family together : table tennis tournaments, African dance and salsa classes as well as story readings.
For sportsmen and women the varied choice available includes golf, tennis, fitness classes, riding, water sports and you will find all in a protected environment.
Street music and “bandas” on the beach, night markets, 3D laser shows and concerts to mention just a few of the abundant events to enjoy during the summer. Essential dates to remember include the International Dance in July, the fireworks display on the port of Saint-Cyprien (15th August), the Festival of Singular Act (at the beginning of September) and the International Tennis Federation tournament (October).
Gastronomy and tradition
Discover the local and traditional products of the various markets of Saint-Cyprien and enjoy seasonal fruits, honey, traditional pastries (rousquilles, touron), olive oil and goat’s cheese. Enjoy!
