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

The pool and veranda are fantastic and welcoming at every hour of the day and night. Slyvie and Jean Marc are great - warm and welcoming- leaving you to get on and enjoy this tranquil spot but taking care you have all you need. The villa is close to Cotignac which is a lively and enjoyable little town with a variety of restaurants and communal entertainment every evening. We enjoyed the nearby National Park of Verdoun and it's beautiful lakes and gorges. The area produces some delicious wines. The Côte d'Azur is a short drive away. We couldn't have wanted more from a holiday in Provence.

The setting is beautiful and the building has been carefully designed around the environment, blending in much more effectively than others in the area. Catherine and her husband are excellent hosts and while there was a bit of a language barrier (we don't speak much French, they speak basic English) we had a very pleasant stay. Things we recommend being aware of to make the most of your stay: - the property is unnamed so the address is hard to find in a GPS - best to ask ahead for an exact road location in case GPS coordinates are hard to follow - the property is up an extremely steep hill so we recommend driving as much as possible, especially if its hot. As the description says, it's a ten minute walk into town but a good 15-20 back up - it's a Eco lodge so there is no air con - we stayed when the temperatures were hitting 40 degrees so we were waking early and it was extremely difficult to stay in the room for long periods during the day (plenty to do elsewhere around Cotignac, we just struggled being tired) - it's also their home so be prepared for the occasional friend or family member to drop in - they're all extremely friendly, just be aware if you want absolute privacy. - there is a pool, it's just the waterproofing is black, rather than a bright blue like most other pools Overall, we think this a beautiful place to stay and is incredible value for money, especially as the hotel in Cotignac does not have a pool or the views here, let alone the delicious breakfast, for the same price. Catherine and her husband are excellent hosts and you'll undoubtedly have a fantastic stay.

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
