The settlement of La Mole is located within the Var department, of Provence Cote d’Azur, in the south-east of France. The self catering villas of La Mole are all pre-vetted to the highest possible standard and are guaranteed to include the basic facilities, at least, that you would need on hand for the perfect break away from it all. The village is slightly inland, but only around a quarter of an hour’s drive away from Europe’s most popular sea - The Mediterranean.
The area surrounding your self catering accommodation in La Mole will be dominated by rolling countryside that is punctuated with the odd wine-producing vineyard. Being in one of France’s most important wine regions, you really should try to visit a vineyard during your time in the area: this is the perfect opportunity to learn more about this industry and perhaps you can stock-up with a few bottles to take back to your villa. You may also wish to explore the local area by way of an organised walking tour, suggested details for which are available from a local tourist information office. Other popular activities to consider include swimming, golf, tennis, fishing, kayaking, horse riding and cycling.
It is always a good idea to have access to your own transport on your holidays in La Mole. This is because the village is situated almost half-way between the city of Marseille to the west, and the immensely popular tourist towns of Cannes and Nice to the east. All of these towns are recommended for a full day’s sightseeing each. Your own car could also have you at the Mediterranean coast within a matter of minutes: public transport and taxis could work out to be inconvenient and very expensive. On the coast, the town of Hyeres is less than 30 km away and is highly recommended. Just a little farther west again is the administrative capital of the Var department - Toulon - and this important French naval town should also register on your radar.
We all like to look forward to some decent weather for a break away and the good news here is that your holidays in La Mole will be subject to a typical Mediterranean climate. Summers are very warm indeed and winters are far milder than back in the UK. You can expect average temperatures to peak at around 28 degrees in July and for the absolute coolest minimum to be in the region of 12 degrees Celsius in January. There are around 20 inches of rainfall in this part of Provence per year.
The nearest and best airport for your holidays in La Mole will be based to the west at Marseilles (MRS). This airport offers a decent service to and from the UK with airlines such as British Airways, Ryanair and easyJet. From airports such as Bristol (BRS), Edinburgh (EDI), London Gatwick (LGW) and London Stansted (STN).
