The Saint-Raphaël markets
Everywhere in France, but particularly in Provence, exploring a market is always a unique experience that allows you to immerse yourself in the local culture.
Wandering among the stalls, one can not only buy good seasonal products but also discover the specialities of the region and meet the locals. Around our campsite in Saint-Raphaël, you will find several markets, all on a human scale.
The atmosphere is always friendly and good-natured. To fully enjoy the experience, just let yourself be guided by the colours and scents of Provence…
