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. Forming a natural amphitheatre, Aups has a wonderful atmosphere of containment, guarded by the watchtower which still stands tall above the Aups skyline. Situated in the Alps, Aups benefits from crisp, country air, breathtaking scenery and picturesque streets filled with historic houses, villas and chateaux.

Things to do on holiday in Aups, France

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.

During the winter (from November until February), the village become a hive of activity every Thursday morning as the famous black truffle market sets up shop. 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.

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.

We found this place instead. It was heaven. New build, everything worked, all the mod cons, delightful owners who live next door, if you need anything. Lots to do nearby and the perfect place to explore from. Will definitely be returning. Very comfortable and a wonderful swimming pool too. Really liked the way that there was a kitchen garden at one end. Highly recommended.

The accommodation was perfect for us with two adequately sized and well appointed bedrooms, a nice bathroom and a good sized and well-equipped kitchen/living area. The gite had everything we needed - including towels and linen - and there were some nice touches which made our stay more comfortable. Whilst there was no air conditioning, we managed perfectly well without it as the windows opened and there were mosquito screens. There was a private garden area for outside eating and relaxing and a decent sized pool shared with the other two 2-person gites and the owners. Our family often had sole use of the pool. The owners were superb hosts. They were very friendly and were available if we needed any help, but did not intrude in any way. We loved the area. Aups is a pleasant small town, and is within 15 minutes walk. It has several decent restaurants. There is a Supermarket opposite the entrance to the gites, and we found it extremely useful to have this facility so close to us. It didn't disturb us. There are several other pleasant towns nearby as well as a number of tourist attractions such as museums, galleries and vineyards. The Verdon Gorges are within an hour's drive and there is some other superb scenery and natural features within reach. It was certainly the best accommodation we have had in France, and one of our favourite holidays.
