Roquebrune-sur-Argens is a commune in the Var department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in southeastern France.

It lies not far from the cities of Draguignan and Fréjus. It consists of three smaller villages: the village of Roquebrune-sur-Argens, La Bouverie and Les Issambres. It is home to the French National Water Ski Training Site.


The history of the oldest part of the village of Roquebrune sur Argens began around 983. However, signs of human beings, from the "Bouverian culture", dating from pre-history, were found in caves near La Bouverie.
