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.

everything was great: the house, the grounds: just beautiful and very convenient. Good taste. 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 !

Peaceful, charming, just perfect!

5 of 5
We were traveling through the South of France with friends and this villa was perfect. It is very charming, comfortable, roomy and well equipped. The pool was perfect summer fun for our kids and it also has beautiful shade under the trees for quiet time or naps. The patio is perfect for true provence breakfasts and dinners. We went to the nearby bakery every morning to get fresh baguette, croissants and other delicious treats. There are oh so many charming nearby villages around this location to explore. Aups is super close and the market there is not to be missed! We went to the Lac de Sainte Croix and Moustier Sainte Marie, passing lavender fields on our way. Our favourite village was Tourtour. It's up in the mountains so the views are spectacular. We would go back in a heartbeat. Looking forward to the next opportunity to stay here again.
