Things to do in Haut-Var – Verdon, France

The Gorges du Verdon or Verdon Gorge is famous throughout the world, especially in rock climbing circles. The gorge is the largest and easily the most impressive in France, dubbed ‘France’s Grand Canyon’. The stunning turquoise of the river Verdon that cuts through the gorge for over 25km marks the bottom, and as well as a huge range of walking trails, there are some 933 climbing routes, catering for every level of climber from the interested onlooker to the most experienced free-climber. There are few places that you can climb in such astonishing beauty, and taking a Haut-Var holiday rental can provide the ultimate climbing holiday.

White water rafting holidays are absolutely magnificent in Haut-Var. A huge amount of effort has been made to ensure that conditions remain at the highest quality throughout the year, and there are many excellent professional centres to ensure that each group attempts a suitable route down the River Verdon. Kayaking, white water swimming, tubing and hydrospeed trips along the river are also excellent fun.

The mountainous countryside of Haut-Var is awash with walking, horse riding and mountain biking trails of the highest quality. You cannot want for routes when staying in Haut-Var accommodation, and maps, hirelings and rental bikes are available from all the major towns and villages throughout the department. The charming mountain villages of Haut-Var provide fantastic spots in which to stop, relax and recharge during any tour of the region, often offering some remarkable historic sites, breath taking views and atmospheric restaurants in which to get a little refreshment before heading back into the wilderness.

Places to visit on holiday in Haut-Var – Verdon, France

The small town of Salernes is a beautiful, red roved town deep in the forested hills of Haut-Var. The town is wonderfully traditional, with sensational little restaurants to frequent as well as a handful of remarkable 13th century relics to explore. However, it is the magnificent horse riding and mountain biking credentials of the village that really draw visitors to the area.

Aups is an impossibly picturesque village high in the hills of Haut-Var. Known for the defensive tower that dominates the skyline, Aups is home to many sights, packed along twisting, medieval streets. The summer months see Aups filled with walkers and mountain bikers, whilst the winter months see the streets filled with black truffle hunters.

Tourtour is known as the ‘village in the sky of Provence’, due to its rocky perch overlooking the landscapes of Haut-Var. Tourtour is hugely popular with tourists, not only for its magnificent location, but also for the magnificent restaurants that call Tourtour home.

Airports in Haut-Var – Verdon, France

When taking a holiday in Haut-Var accommodation, a hire car is essential as you are travelling deep into the French countryside. Toulon-Hyeres Airport (TLN) is slightly closer to the area than Nice (NCE), but there are far more options for flights arriving from the UK if you use Nice Airport.

Extensive gardens with pool and garden furniture. Lots of parking. Villa itself is very well equipped with large TV, comfy sofas and a well stocked kitchen. Very clean and well maintained. Lots of beautiful villages within easy driving distance - Moustiers Ste Marie, Cotignac, Tourtour to name a few. Very good market in Cotignac on a Tuesday. Easy access to lake and its amenities. Very good and easy contact with owner. Would recommend for anyone who wishes to stay in this beautiful part of Provence.

Would definitely recommend visit to the nearby reservoir and gauge as it is stunning. We walked to villecroze for an evening meal approx 20min walk and the restaurants were lovely and it is a special village-if you do decide to walk take torches or ensure phones are charged fully (to use as torches) as its very dark on the walk home! Gardens were quite untidy and could do with a good sorting out and outside was a little like a building site round the back but it didn't effect our stay. Contracts that David insisted on was a little confusing as was in French. He did send translation but I still had to sign the French version so felt it was pointless as I signed a document that may or may not have been altered. Was a little disappointed that there is a final cleaning fee of €70 which I felt was a very steep and if required should be included in the total cost when booking. We decided to clean ourselves which took approx 2hours but we only used one bedroom. Overall lovely place to stay but felt a little cheated by cleaning cost and garden. Sounds a little negative but overall we had a great week and would return!

Albrecht and Katia welcomed us and our two children immediately on our arrival and we're incredibly helpful, kind and thoughtful throughout. The property was beautiful, clean and everything we needed. The incredible views and the Shangri La meditation pagoda made it a real sanctuary. Great climate, amazing canyons and fresh water lakes and an easy trip to the Cotes d'Azur. What's not to love?! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone who is looking for a tranquil, get away location, with plenty of great walking, mountain/canyon views and water pursuits. Thanks again Albrecht and Katia! Hope to see you again soon.
