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.

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

Wir sind von München mit Lufthansa nach Niza geflogen und von dort 1 Stunde 20 Minuten nach Cotignac gefahren. Einfacher( und schneller) zu erreichen, wäre Cotignac von Marseile. Das Haus ist ein Highlight. Es liegt in einem riesigen Grunstück mit eigenen Olivenbäumen, einem Pool, einer tolle Terrasse mit traumhaftem Ausblick. Das Haus hat 3 Schlafzimmer, einem großzügigen Wohnberreich und lädt zum grillen und kochen ein. Wer die nähere Umgebung zu Fuß erkunden will, besucht das Weingut Nestuby, nur einen Kartensprung entfernt. Oder das malerische Dorf Cotignac, nach einen kurzen Spaziergang. Wir waren schon lange nicht mehr so erholt, dass ruhige Leben in der Provence, die malerische Landschaft und das angenehme Klima laden zum Verweilen ein. Nächstes Jahr kommen wir sicher wieder zurück!!

We really enjoyed using it as a base to tour around, it is perfectly situated in the centre of this beautiful part of Provence. It was an easy walk to village which is really lovely and typically Provençal. We'll be back!
