Things to do

-Local history. Besse-sur-Issole is a charming village and well worth a stroll. There are many old fountains on the streets here, as well as a belfry and chapels, all clustered around a small lake and overlooked by a castle. The area is known for its Cistercian Abbeys, and there are three beautiful examples within an easy drive – Thoronet, Sénanque and Silvacane.

-Activities. In the vicinity there’s an exquisite landscape of terraced vineyards, olive groves, rocky hills and pine forest. There’s a stables and equestrian centre in Besse-sur-Issole offering horseback trips. On foot there’s lots to discover – you could follow the route to the chapel of Notre Dame du Glaive or explore the nature reserve around the Escarcets Lake, which is known for its excellent water quality and is popular with fishers.

-Food and drink. Var is a department of France that has a strong reputation for its Rosé wine, but also produces red and white varieties. Three wines in this area have an AOC label – Binse de Bandol, Coteaux Varois and Côtes de Provence. Food here features lots of tomato and herbs, and the fish is superb this close to the coast. Olive oil is also an important local product – in the summer months you could make the trip to Sainte Maxime for tours and tastings at la Domaine de la Piere Plantee olive groves.

-Verdon Gorge. To the north is this river canyon, considered to be one of the most impressive in Europe. It draws visitors for many different reasons – climbers can scale the canyon’s limestone walls, with 1,500 courses to choose from; hikers come to admire the immense beauty of the gorge, especially the view from the north rim, and it’s also possible to kayak or raft along the Verdon for an unforgettable adventure.

-Coast. The Mediterranean is around half an hour from the village of Besse-sur-Issole. The nearest beaches can be found at Hyères, which has a 20-kilometre coastline comprising all varieties of bays and coves, with pebbles, white and golden sand, and offering superb conditions for activities like windsurfing. For families the best choices are Bergerie à l’Ayguade, L’Almanarre, l’Alycastre and La Courtade.

Wonderful Villa with everything you need for a fun and comfortable stay

5 of 5
A huge thank you for letting us stay in your villa for 2 weeks in July 2017. A wonderful villa, very clean, comfortable, quiet and with everything we needed for our two week stay. It was a little difficult to find the first time, but we were met in the local town and led up to it, which was much appreciated. The only thing to watch for is if you have difficulty with stairs, then there are no rails to help you up and down the outside steps and into the pool. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would definitely visit again. A big big thank you to you both for your superb hospitality, it was really lovely to meet you and we have been recommending your villa to our friends.

A delightful and very private house

4 of 5
Our stay was complicated by the fact that owner got married on the day of our arrival! We were met by a friend who showed us the house but I think he did not know it well enough. The sitting area in the house is very comfortable and well furnished and the area by the pool and outside cooking/eating area is really good. Lovely pool if a little on the cool side in September! The house is a bit quirky but has great character. An info pack about the house and the area would be a useful addition.
