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.

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.

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.

The accommodation was perfect for us with two adequately sized and well appointed bedrooms, a nice bathroom and a good sized and well-equipped kitchen/living area. The gite had everything we needed - including towels and linen - and there were some nice touches which made our stay more comfortable. Whilst there was no air conditioning, we managed perfectly well without it as the windows opened and there were mosquito screens. There was a private garden area for outside eating and relaxing and a decent sized pool shared with the other two 2-person gites and the owners. Our family often had sole use of the pool. The owners were superb hosts. They were very friendly and were available if we needed any help, but did not intrude in any way. We loved the area. Aups is a pleasant small town, and is within 15 minutes walk. It has several decent restaurants. There is a Supermarket opposite the entrance to the gites, and we found it extremely useful to have this facility so close to us. It didn't disturb us. There are several other pleasant towns nearby as well as a number of tourist attractions such as museums, galleries and vineyards. The Verdon Gorges are within an hour's drive and there is some other superb scenery and natural features within reach. It was certainly the best accommodation we have had in France, and one of our favourite holidays.
