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). Ryanair also fly from Stansted (STN) and Glasgow (GLA).

Outside it the sun shine was lovely but the house was fantastically cool during the days. The local town had great places to eat although I'd advise booking a table during the day to make sure they have a place available for you. The market was great and well worth the vist.

John and Margot were very welcoming and even went the extra mile of laying in groceries to cope with our late Sunday arrival when the local shops would be shut. The house is stylishly furnished but still felt homely and welcoming. It is excellently equipped with comfy beds and lovely linen and the British TV channels were a hit with the kids. The layout means there is lots of space for the family to spread out. Outside the different terrace spaces meant there was always a shady spot to sit and we loved eating outside at all times of the day, with plenty of BBQ possibilities. The views over the wooded valley are beautiful and it felt tranquil without being isolated. The pool was the focus of our stay and came complete with ball, snorkels, lilos and inflatable tyres to entertain the children. I found it a fraction chilly but everyone else tells me I was just being a a bit wimpy, so probably just me! The house is in a great location for both relaxing and exploring. A choice of supermarkets is less than a 10 minute drive away which makes life very easy. We hit something of a hot spot with temperatures rarely straying from 32 degrees, so we did not sight-see as much as planned, but thoroughly enjoyed the short trips to delightful nearby towns like Cotignac and Aups with their lovely markets (arrive early - 9ish - to find parking and beat the main crowds), as well as stepping back in time in the winding streets of Tourtour (good pizza at La Place) and Sillans-la-Cascade (where you can also walk to the waterfall, but sadly no longer swim). We enjoyed visiting the troglodyte dwellings in Cotignac and Villecroze which are only small but make a fun outing with children. The highlight for our girls was hiring a pedalo to explore the Gorge du Verdon (easiest place to go is the beach just before the bridge Pont de Galetas on the D957, again arrive earlyish to beat the queues - we were there around 9.45am) Brilliant to swim off the pedalo right in the gorge. We went twice. We would thoroughly recommend Villa Alta and hope to return! Only suggestion I would have is to leave a book for guests to share tips for outings etc. John and Margot can help of course, and I had done research online via Tripadvisor etc, but many of the local places do not have much of a web presence of their own, so a bit of experience sharing could be great.
