Make a holiday rental home or villa in Carces, France your home away from home. Carces, France

The village of Carces lies in the centre of the Var department, and is a popular choice of base for those wishing to explore all that the region has to offer. It is one of the biggest settlements in the region, has a good array of amenities, an attractive medieval centre and a good selection of holiday rental accommodation – basically everything you need to get started and enjoy a holiday in Var to its maximum potential.

Things to do in Carces, France

Carces is an old village, and its centre has retained its medieval character, having extremely narrow and winding streets and a number of old buildings. There is something a ‘shabby chic’ to Carces, and enjoying a coffee or glass of wine outside one of the pavement cafes is the perfect way to while away a lazy afternoon in the sun.

The busiest day in Carces is Saturday, the day of the weekly market. This is the place to pick up clothes, souvenirs and a wide variety of local produce, including fruit, vegetables and cooked goods.

Carces has a couple of sites of tourist interest within its confines, including a Gallery for Contemporary Art and the 11th century feudal castle of St. Suzanne. The old centre is itself an attraction and great for exploring; keep an eye out for the interesting and brightly-coloured wall tiles found on some of the houses as you go.

A popular spot just outside the centre of the village is Carces Lake, and its banks make for a great walk on a warm summer afternoon. Along the way you will likely see a number of the local fishermen that seek out the local freshwater fish, and you can even enjoy a spot of fishing yourself if this is your thing.

We Think we have rented many times in France over the years, so we do have some experience. But this was definitely the best ever. We'll be back some day to enjoy all the benefits of this lovely house again.

Kitchen very functional and well stocked with utensils, cutlery etc. Kids loved the outside space and pool. The owner--Anne-Catherine-- was most pleasant and helpful. We had a wonderful time in Carces, and really could say nothing negative.
