The two parts of the response were not meant to be linked. I am not sure how warm Southern French beach resorts are in late Feb or early March so I went for a nice city instead.

No issues in Barcelona either.

Marseille may be a touch big if you're looking for French stadia, but Bordeaux could have potential.

Toulouse might fit the bill. The Union ground is quite large. Plenty of flights and Hotels. To be fair it is a bit of a walk to the beach.

Could effectively be a home game for TO, depending how the play offs go!

Are there any stadiums that are right next to the beach?
Can you imagine being able to come out between games and chill in the sands or play a bit of beach Rugby? The visuals would be brilliant. Not too mention the after party!

A few issues here:

Getting 50,000+ people to France, accommodation costs etc. The price of flights and hotels rockets for a Catalans home game, let alone a weekend of it.

It's a nice idea, but it isn't viable

Transport is of course an issue, but if you pitch at at a ground about 30k not the usual 50k then surely it can still look full.

Would also stage a Toulouse game and a French league game as warm up games for each day to attract more locals in. The aim would be to boost the game in France, not get tens of thousands of Brits across the Channel.

appears the Toulouse RU ground fits 33k so that could be a choice.

In Catalonia the Nou Camp is too big, but Espanyol's 40k ground an option, though I believe it is very much on the outskirts of Barcelona.

Nobody has put a timeframe on it, of course it's Anfield next year, they have said as much.
