Saint-Aygulf, a little bit of history...

Once called "Villepey" by the Romans, Saint-Aygulf was renamed around the 18th century according to the history of the abbot Saint-Aygulfe.

Saint-Aygulfe (with an e) was an abbot of Lérins born in 630. He was murdered by his fellow soldiers in 677. His remains were venerated for a long time in the Sainte-Croix Chapel of the monastery of Lerins, as shown by the plaque that still stands above its entrance. Processions were then held in his honour in some coastal towns. Legend has it that the boat bringing his remains back from Roquebrune-sur-Argens washed up on the coast of Saint-Aygulf, which gave it its name.

The celebration of Saint-Aygulfe now takes place every first weekend in September. The Saint-Aygulf district really developed from 1881, when the Société du Littoral decided to buy more than 200 hectares of the city to create a district. Guy de Maupassant, a famous 19th century writer, testifies to this in his book "Sur l'eau".

 

What to do in Saint-Aygulf ?

Saint-Aygulf beach is ideal for families. Close to shops and car parks, it extends over 800 metres of fine sand. Namely, an area is delimited and marked for naturists (near the campsite "la plage d'Argens").

Saint-Aygulf beach is also known as a kitesurfing paradise. A 400-metre section is reserved for this sensational water sport. Other activities such as jet-skiing or towed buoys are also present along the Saint-Aygulf coast.
