Sanary is a beautiful seafront market town on the French Riviera. The UCPA centre is tucked up on the cliffside 15 minutes walk from the main fishing port area where you can find the famous historic market. There are plenty of varied shops, stunning bays and quiet coves to explore. You can go on a bike ride to discover sites such as Archipel des Embiez or the Fort de la Pointe de la Cride.

The UCPA centre has a wonderful terrace area looking out over the ocean where you can eat your food, drink at the bar, play board some table tennis or games and often be entertained with live music. There are two petanque courts, jetty from a privately accessed beach and a solarium to relax in after a busy day of sports. 


- 3, 4, 5 person bungalows and twin bungalows (supplement cost)

- Communal outdoor bathroom facilities 


- Buffet style meals on the sun terrace

- Well priced bar 

- Pétanque, table tennis, board games, poker, walks on the coastal path, deckchairs facing the sea.

- WiFi in the communal area. Please note the WiFi is not good enough for working on data intensive activities.

All UCPA meals are buffet style and with multiple servings the norm; you won't go hungry.

Breakfast is normally yogurts, cereals, fruit juice, coffee and bread - don't be surprised to see that the coffee and tea is taken in a bowl!

It is possible to return to the centre for lunch everyday where you will find 1 or 2 hot options available. As with all meals there will be a salad bar, plenty of bread, cheese, meat and of course desert. If you prefer you can make a packed lunch at breakfast time and eat on the mountain. Either way you will save a fortune avoiding the piste side restaurants.

Dinner is a 3/4 course buffet - typically a salad bar style starter, a choice of 3 hot main courses, a cheese and cold meat platter and ice cream/dessert.

Due to the cost focussed nature of UCPA and the wide range of dietary requirements, it is impossible to accommodate everyone as standard. If you have any severe dietary requirements please contact the centre two weeks before to let them know. Generally speaking vegetarians will find plenty of options, with vegan options being a little more scarce but improving year on year.
