La Cascade is perfectly situated on the edge of Aups, a five minute walk from the restaurants, cafes, shops and the fantastic twice-weekly market where we bought local produce to cook in the huge, well-equipped kitchen. We ate all our meals on the beautiful terrace by the mill stream, shaded by fig trees and grape vines. It was also a great place to relax after a long bike ride exploring the beautiful villages of the Haut Var or the dramatic scenery of the Verdon gorges and the lavender fields of the Valensole plateau. And later in the evening we would sit on the huge terrace in front of the owner's apartment watching the sunset. We loved our time at La Cascade and would definitely stay there again.

The property is close enough to Aups to make walking to town for dinner easy and the supermarket opposite is fantastically handy. We loved staying here, Sandra and Colin really have thought of everything that you might need. Very highly recommended.
