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.

A tranquil cottage, lovely and rustic.

4 of 5
We spent a lovely week here and Cotignac, which is very pretty, is also a great place for cafes, restaurants and the market. Highly recommend visiting Chateau Fontainbleu for wine tasting. The cottage was charming and we'll stocked, although could do with a new oven. There was a shortage of sunloungers for a place that sleeps 8 people, only 2 working loungers is not enough.

Beautiful and spacious villa

5 of 5
We booked a weeks stay at this villa to enjoy a family get together. Our ages ranged from eight to eighty-two and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our highlights included morning walks to the boulangie, the gorgeous village center and its numerous restaurants and relaxing by the pool during the day. There is so much more we would have liked to have done! We hope we get back again soon.
