Théoule-sur-Mer is a seaside town in the Var about 45 km or a 50 minute train ride from Nice. A fellow assistant heard from some of her students that it was a good place to go hiking. Thus, one Sunday in January, we took a train to TSM to explore. Not much was happening in the town since it was a Sunday, so we walked along the beach before starting our hike.
The hike was beautiful and not too long – I’d recommend it to anyone staying in the south of France.
Just a bit of advice: don’t take a train to TSM on a Sunday… the return trains are VERY infrequent. Or you could just time your hike better than we did. Otherwise you end up waiting two hours for the next train, or walking all the way from TSM to Cannes which is what we did. On the bright side we did get to see a beautiful sunset.
