Autumn has arrived in the south of France and the change in weather is as dramatic as it is sudden. Only a few weeks ago the area was experiencing temperatures of around thirty degrees. It’s half that now. Strong winds and choppy seas go hand in hand. Rainy days are forecast and it’s time to wrap up warm.

With the holidaymakers having left, the roads are much more quiet. Gone are the camper vans and motor homes that are in abundance along the windy coast road that meanders its way from Théoule-sur-Mer to Saint Raphaël.

Some of the restaurants, so popular in the summer, have now been dismantled. A quirky rule states that if a restaurant on the beach is open for less than ten months of the year it must be taken down as soon as it closes for the season and rebuilt in the spring. Many of the restaurants’ staff have gone to work in the Caribbean, while others head off to work in the ski resorts of France, Switzerland and Italy.
