Often less recognized than its famous cousins Nice and Marseille, the French Mediterranean Côte d'Azur city of Toulon is arguably just as beautiful as either but without quite as much crowding. This lovely, sun-drenched historic town has sun, crystal-clear seas, and sophisticated urban adventures on offer in abundance. It offers easy access to the entire eastern Côte d'Azur and smaller nearby historical towns like Hyeres.
Toulon is located within short private jet travel distance of many other fascinating destinations and charter jet flights of only a few hours or less can be arranged between the city and many other premiere luxury destinations.
What Can You Do in Toulon
There are so many different things available to do in Toulon that renting a private jet to this vibrant port city offers nearly anything worth enjoying in terms of nature, culture, history, nightlife, fine dining and marvellous cuisine.
Téléphérique du Faron
The ideal starting place for a literal overview of France’s third largest Mediterranean coastal city simply has to be the Téléphérique du Faron, which offers a cable car ride right to the top of Mount Faron. From this exquisite vantage point and its panoramic view of the entire nearby coastline, you can enjoy any one of several hiking trails and easy paths that will take you around the mountain and its different breathtaking lookout spots.
Plage du Mourillon
The entire coastal region in and around Toulon is dotted with spectacularly lovely beaches and covers but in terms of both easy access and sheer beauty right within sight of the city itself, it’s hard to beat the Plage du Mourillon. This beautiful easterly stretch of beach offers an especially attractive layout of palm trees, lush vegetation and beach-side restaurants surrounding a stretch of crystalline water that gently caresses the sand day and night.
A private jet visit into Toulon wouldn’t be complete without at least a couple hours spent exploring the city’s ancient harbor. This focal point of the city is filled with a marvelous assortment of different boats, ships and yachts from nearly any era you can imagine while also offering enough shopping and dining opportunities to enjoy for weeks. Relax with a fresh plate of seafood while taking in the sunset with a chilled glass of fine local wine, then immerse yourself in the harbour’s thriving nightlife.
Cours Lafayette Market
As a port city right on the Mediterranean, Toulon wouldn’t be what it is without at least one daily market. This is best represented by the Cours Lafayette Market, which is the region’s largest outdoor shopping experience. The Cours Lafayette opens almost every day of the week from early morning until lunch and offers a fantastically rich cross-section of fresh local produce of all types. Seasonal foods sourced from regional gardens, and farms make for a deliciously unique culinary experience.
