Between land and sea, at the gateway to the Alpes de Haute Provence and the Côte d'Azur, the Var is the second most touristic department in France as well as one of the greenest. The diversity of its landscapes and its reliefs make it a particularly attractive and magical destination.
What makes this Region special
On the coast, we find the most beautiful sites on the coast, with large sandy beaches, and a seabed of exceptional quality and beauty. Apart from the unmissable villages of Saint Tropez and Ramatuelle, the Var has other villages of character to visit worth making a detour: Bormes-les-Mimosas, Porquerolles…. On the land side, the Massif des Maures is a privileged nature destination, due to its immensity and its play of light. You can also cross the roads between the vineyards to do a little wine tourism and thus discover local products cultivated more and more in an ecological way. Gems of nature, wonders of historical heritage, animal or leisure parks, the Var region offers many activities to have fun with family or friends. It is easy to soak up the art of living in Provence accompanied by the mild Mediterranean climate and exceptional annual sunshine.
