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).

The Villa is large with an ideal layout, it is perfect for large families or to share with friends without being on top of each other. The villa is very well equipped, has a large usable kitchen, ample eating areas inside and out, plus an excellent BBQ area, with a large covered terrace overlooking the pool, pond and rustic garden. The villa is set in private grounds, quiet and secluded with beautiful views of vineyards and olive groves. Our children loved the pool and the owners have thoughtfully provided pool furniture/pool floats/toys to keep children entertained for hours. There are also bikes for the more adventurous. The villa has the benefit of internet access/satellite that and a large DVD collection if required or have the time. The town is a short car journey away or a half hour walk through quiet country roads, ideal for the holiday maker who loves to walk. The market town of Cotignac has all the amenities you would require including many good restaurants. The location of the villa is perfect for sight seeing in the local area, we would recommend a visit to the Lakes and sampling the wine tasting in one of the numerous vineyards in the vicinity. Can't wait to go back. Matt and Jenni D

The village, local walks and markets are highly recommended - we found it very hard to leave! Owners responded immediately to questions and clearly thought a lot about visitor comfort - good books, aesthetic planting, lovely linens and no clutter. Fabulous.
