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.

The Gorges de Verdon at the far end of the lake are particular favourites with climbers too.

The famous seaside resort of St Tropez and the beaches of the Cote d’Azur are only an hour’s drive from a self catering Cotignac villa too.

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).

Beautiful and convenient location in a wonderful part of the world

4 of 5
We stayed for 10 days with the number of people ranging from 5 to 7 during that time. The house has all that you need for the number of people. The location has a wide range of activities either through walking or going out for excursions by bike or car. The village has all that you need for self catering, with other larger centres within easy reach. The views from the house are wonderful, the layout lends itself to enjoying these views and there are cooler areas to retreat to if it gets too hot. The pool is just large enough to cope with very hot weather (we had temperatures up to 36 degrees Celsius). The owner is very approachable, and there is a person locally who was available and helpful with settlingin and any questions on a day to day basis.
