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.

A very nice property and gite with excellent outdoor and pool areas.

5 of 5
We had an excellent vacation at this property near Brignoles and enjoyed the two apartments and the outside spaces for eating with far reaching views. The heated pool was excellent and the patio area in very good condition with some lovely arrangements of plants, flowers and shrubs, all beautifully tended by the owners. Herve and Corinne are very friendly and helpful hosts as well as being very discreet.

Outstanding property and location

5 of 5
A great place to explore Provence. Everything you could wish for and very relaxing. We were unlucky with the weather this year, but c'est la vie. Georges and his wife were most hospitable. I would thoroughly recommend this gite.
