Make a holiday rental house or villa in Cotignac, Provence, France your home away from home

Cotignac, Provence is probably most famous for the twin towers which stand guard over the town at the bottom of the dramatic cliffs on which they stand. Situated in the Var department of Provence, Cotignac is a town rife with character and majesty. It is repeatedly touted as the nicest village in Provence, and I am certainly not going to argue with that!

Things to do on holiday in Cotignac, Provence, France

The great rock is one of the most impressive sights of the city, and as the sun moves around the sky, different sections of deep caves, giant ledges and towering stalagmites come into view.

This is a truly unspoilt mediaeval town, littered with some bizarre fountains which still gurgle with clear cool water into the basins below. The narrow twisted streets hide a variety of charming cafes and local, family owned restaurants where you can find authentic local cuisine, prepared with perfection, and all washed down with a choice of the famous wines of Var. If you are staying in a self catering Cotignac villa, be sure to stock up on the excellent olive oil, herbs, honey and excellent, inexpensive local wines for your kitchen. The main square, Cours Gambetta is the best place to find these from your Cotignac villa.

If you are intrigued by large chateaux, museums, monasteries, antiques or traditional French Provencal life, a holiday rental in Cotignac is perfect for your next holiday. Walking and cycling through the meadows and woodland covered hills are beautiful ways to spend a long afternoon in the sun from a Cotignac villa too.

However, the villas of Cotignac also attract those who thrive on adrenaline. There are around 25km worth of testing rock climbing to try, although in mid-summer it can be to hot to tackle. The climbing areas of Les Calanques, and Montagne St Victoire are the most well known, but there are plenty of smaller climbs to get your eye in first.

Travel to Cotignac, Provence, France

There is very little to choose from between Marseille (MRS) and Nice (NCE) airport when it comes to travelling to a holiday rental villa in Cotignac, but due to the slightly better services and better approach to the town, Marseille International Airport is probably the better of the two. easyJet provide cheap flights to Marseille from both London Gatwick (LGW) and Bristol (BRS).

                                      just remembering the wonderful holiday we had at this beautiful converted mill last year. I was there with my husband and two teenage daughters and it had everything we needed. situated seconds walk from an idyllic French town of Cotignac with restaurants, markets and fresh fruit and vegetables on hand, we spent our week there either dipping in the very quiet infinity pool, walking into the extraordinary hillside, visits to a stunning lake where we swam and kayaked and waterfalls and beautiful villages at every turning. The flat itself is spacious and easy with everything you need and built into the olive mill itself, it is cool and full of style. It really ticked all the boxes for us and we found Vivien so easy to deal with. We do really hope to go back sometime

                                      Stunningly beautiful French villa!

                                      5 of 5
                                      I was blown away by this stunning villa when we arrived in the evening which just got better in the morning when I saw the view! Whether you are sitting on the terrace or at the pool there are uninterrupted views of the beautiful French countryside. The accommodation is excellent, very comfortable, clean and the kitchen is well equipped. The villa is in a great spot and you feel you are the only people around for miles but the local town is a 5 min drive. Cotignac is a pretty town with all the amenities you need. There are many decent restaurants and a market on a Wednesday. We hired bikes from the owner and it was alot of fun cycling through the olive trees and vines to visit the local sights. We found the owners really helpful and knowledgeable of the area and they suggested some great places to visit. We will definitely be going back as we loved staying at the villa and there is so much more to explore in the area.

                                      Perfect get-away with beautiful Cotignac nearby

                                      5 of 5
                                      Jean Marc and Sylvie have created a lovely and charming home with everything you need to relax. Located a 5-10 minute drive from Cotignac, in part on single tracks, it offers visitors solitude and quiet in beautiful surroundings. Cotignac has a lot to offer with a great selection of restaurants, shops, markets. Jean Marc and Sylvie made us very welcome and ensured our stay was trouble-free. The description on the web site is very accurate - no surprises at all - and the house was clean and well-maintained. Having stayed at a number of villas in Var, this undoubtedly ranks the highest. We hope to return later this year for another fortnight's bliss!
