Jogging

I like to jog when I am in Plan de La Tour. Sometimes I will drive into Ste Maxime and jog along the coast to Port Grimaud. This is a 10K - 12K Jog and best done early in the day before the sun gets too hot. The views of the Gulf of St Tropez are spectacular and it is is a nice quiet and safe jog on a dedicated path. If you are brave you can continue to St Tropez and get the ferry back to Ste Maxime!

Other days I prefer to stay local and jog around the paths, fields and laneways around Plan de la Tour. This is very peaceful and relaxed. the views are great and you never know what you might come across.(one morning I nearly stepped on a tortoise..which apparently are quiet popular around here). Usually on the way back I pick up the breakfast and the local newspaper (Var Matin) in the village.
