Agay - the shy Riviera village

Agay, a traditional village in many ways, stands out from the many seaside villages and towns of the Côte d'Azur region for its tranquillity and old fashioned attitudes. The village is part of the Saint Raphael commune, with a total population 34,425, although Agay itself is far smaller. It is a delightful place to spend a holiday, or indeed to live, as its setting on the gorgeous Bay of Agay is perfect, and residents benefit from the peace and calm of their base while still being able to access the more ebullient fun and lifestyle of Saint Raphael, Frejus or any of the other Riviera resorts. Agay may be the blushing, shy little sister of the Riviera family, but her beauty and charm are more than worth discovering for yourself.

Life in the village

Although Agay doesn't have the designer boutiques, nightclubs and casinos of the larger Riviera destinations, there are still a good number of local shops, and even more good cafés, bars and restaurants. Wednesday is market day in Agay, with antique markets also being held in the evenings throughout the summer months. If you need more, Saint Raphael and Frejus are on the doorstep, with more shops and nightlife than you could ever expect to need, while it is easy to drive to the major cities of the region such as Nice and Cannes, just along the coast.

The glorious Agay Bay

The real glory of Agay, though, is its delightful bay. A horseshoe sweep of sand, opening onto a calm, turquoise sea and fringed with pine forests and palm trees, the seaside here really is exquisite, and so much the nicer for being less touristic than its neighbours. There are two beaches, Plage la Baumette to the east and Agay Plage in the centre of the bay.

Out and about

With all of the Côte d'Azur and the Provence hinterland on its doorstep, Agay is a perfect base for getting to know this supreme region of France. The lively resorts of Frejus and Saint Raphael offer fun and games for all, with beach front bars, nightclubs, discos, hotels, all kinds of shopping and other entertainment. The sophistication of Cannes and Nice takes this even further, so if you want to spot a billionaire or two, or perhaps a movie star, just head off this way!

Explore the villages and ancient monuments found inland

Go inland, though, and it's another story altogether. The Var is a beautiful department, coloured with lavender in summer and vibrant yellow mimosa in winter, with pretty terracotta-coloured villages, ancient monuments, vineyards and olive groves.

Activities on offer

There are many activities available to you in this popular and well developed region, so whether you want to ride a horse through the vineyards, walk in the lavender fields, jet ski on the Med or play golf in the sunshine, you will be able to do it here. Children are well catered for too, with water parks, safari parks and theme parks all in the locality.

How to get there

Although the Riviera is in the south of France, and therefore just about as far away from Britain as you can get in France, it is one of the easiest places to access as the international airports of Nice, Toulon and Marseille have been offering flights here from all over the UK for many years and consistently update their services. Marseille is served by British Airways, easyJet, Ryanair and Aer Lingus; Nice by British Airways, bmibaby, easyJet, bmi, Jet2, flybe, Air France and Aer Lingus; and Toulon by Ryanair.

Going by rail and road are both options too

There is a railway station here too, with hourly connections to Cannes, Nice, Menton and Ventimille as well as Saint Raphael, Draguignan, Toulon, Aix and Marseille, making train travel a realistic option. The nearby town of Frejus also has a railway station which lies on a main line from Paris to the south-east of France and to Italy. If travelling by road, the A8 auto route brings drivers speedily to their destination, with the town being found along the D1098 coastal road.

Property prices and availability in and around Agay

There has to be a downside to such a perfect little place, and sadly, in the case of Agay it is that property here is pretty expensive, even if less so than in Nice and Cannes! However, the Côte d'Azur never loses its appeal, and any investment in property here is likely to be sound, especially if you are looking to rent out the property for all or part of the time.
