Things to do in Toulon
Le Mourillon is a friendly and convivial area which has kept its provençal village character and has plenty of life about it, with a daily market and excellent bakeries! Everything is easily accessible on foot but public transport is excellent by way of buses, boat buses and trains. You can enjoy the beaches and sea, hiking and cycle trails in the vicinity. Toulon also has a range of cultural events such as art, food, book and music festivals planned throughout out the year. Please see links below for more information on places to visit, activities and events to suit you.
We have left a range of bus timetables, brochures, maps and guides to the region to help our guests make the most of their time in Toulon. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you want more information.

For events in Toulon :
Most people come for the beaches and the sea. Our apartment is 100m from Le Lido, a sandy beach. Click here to see the webcam for the beaches at the bottom of the road.
There are also smaller wilder beaches which are easily reached from le Mourillon: La Mitre to the west (10 minutes on foot – follow the coast and you'll find beautiful beaches just after the little port at Fort St Louis); Cap Brun to the east - walk from the little Yacht Club (Anse Tabarly) and take the coast path to Méjean bay.
Mont Faron provides spectacular views of Toulon and the bay. There's a cable car to the summit. It's a beautiful spot for hiking in open countryside.
The beaches at Le Pradet are really pretty, as is the port of Les Oursinières and the mine at Cap Garonne has lovely open and forest hiking trails and views together with a mine museum.
The St Mandrier peninsula is really lovely. You can take a boat bus to it from the main port (the port is 15 minutes' walk from the flat or a short bus ride).
Do consider visiting the islands off Hyères (Porquerolles is superb), boat trips and Mont Faron (the cable car gives great views and there are lovely hiking trails for those who enjoy the open countryside).
