Make a holiday rental villa or accommodation in Aups, France your home away from home

Aups is a magnificent small town in the Var countryside.

Situated in the Alps, Aups benefits from crisp, country air, breathtaking scenery and picturesque streets filled with historic houses, villas and chateaux.

Wandering through the streets of Aups is hugely relaxing. The town is littered with small, shaded squares lined with ancient fountains and traditional cafes in which to sit and recuperate after a hard morning sightseeing, shopping or hiking. The feudal castle and square watchtower which dominate the Aups skyline are well worth investigating and the Chapelle Notre Dame de la Deliverance cannot fail to charm.

There are some beautiful trails to walk in the Aups area. However, the surrounding countryside is a region of dense farming and walkers must be careful when crossing private farmland and vineyards. Details of possible routes can be found in guides at Aups tourist information centre. Among the best trails in the area include the looped route into the Montagne des Espiguieres and the trails into the Salernes, Villacroze and Tourtour forests. Mountain biking and horse riding holidays are almost unrivalled in Aups too, as there are some magnificent routes towards the Lake of Ste Croix (a beautiful fishing lake) and the Torrent La Grave.

People take self catering accommodation in Aups purely to sample the produce sold at the Thursday market, as Aups boasts some of the finest quality black truffles in the whole of France.

We could not speak highly enough about the Gite we stayed in while here, which had everything we required for a wonderful stay. Beds were so comfortable and the only sound at night was the lovely hum of crickets which allowed for much needed rest and relaxation. The on-site amenities are wonderful and almost feel like they are your own private amenities. Between the pool, table tennis, boules, the trampoline and the wonderful grounds of this estate we had so much to keep us occupied when we were not out exploring the Verdon region. The owner, Olivier, could not be more helpful and his local knowledge allowed us to make the most of our short stay also. No request was too much. This is truly a small slice of paradise and we cannot wait to return.

The surroundings (gorges du verdon and all the small villages around) worthwhile to visit. We even went to the Mediterranean, beautiful weather and the light is extraordinary in april !
