Crossing the borders: Ventigmiglia just over the border in Italy offers a wonderful all day market every Friday. This is well worth a visit as many bargains can be had and excellent pizzas and chianti, Get there early to avoid heavy traffic in the summer and get a parking space. Apart from this being a wonderful day out the journey includes fabulous scenery, passes through Monte Carlo and Menton ( a lovely Provencal seaside resort ) and we recommend you keep to the coast road to enter Italy rather than the motorway. As you pass through Latte visit the supermarket Conrad to stock up on discounted alcohol.
Seasonal activities: During the spring and autumn is an ideal time to visit this part of France as there is a wealth of beautiful flora and fauna and several good birdwatching sites nearby e.g, Hyeres, Lac du Carces, Gorge du Verdon. The main lavender growing region of the Luberon is a couple of hours drive and makes a nice day out during June and July. Especially the area around Simiane la Ritonde and Manosque.
If you are travelling by car it is worth bringing your bikes as there a many scenic designated cycles routes in the Var region and the villa is situated alongside a lane popular with local walkers and cyclists.
As the villa is right on the River Argens you may be tempted toward canoeing and these may be hired near the village of Carces or enquire in the Office du Tourism in Lorgues.
And one of our favourite activities during any season is wine tasting in any of the many caves that surround the villa. However, we recommend Chateau La Crostes, Taradeau, and Chateau de Berne.
