    The great rock is one of the most impressive sights of the city, and as the sun moves around the sky, different sections of deep caves, giant ledges and towering stalagmites come into view.

    This is a truly unspoilt mediaeval town, littered with some bizarre fountains which still gurgle with clear cool water into the basins below. The narrow twisted streets hide a variety of charming cafes and local, family owned restaurants where you can find authentic local cuisine, prepared with perfection, and all washed down with a choice of the famous wines of Var. If you are staying in a self catering Cotignac villa, be sure to stock up on the excellent olive oil, herbs, honey and excellent, inexpensive local wines for your kitchen. The main square, Cours Gambetta is the best place to find these from your Cotignac villa.
