Make a holiday cottage in St-Antonin-du-Var your home away from home

HomeAway brings you a choice of cottages, villas and holiday homes in St-Antonin-du-Var, a village in the greenest part of Provence. During your holiday at a cottage in St-Antonin-du-Var the range of activities and places to see will be fantastic, and totally dependent on your taste. You might prefer visits to the classic old villages and exciting historical sites nearby, or rugged hikes through gorgeous scenery, over hills, next to winding rivers and past vineyards. In the meantime your St-Antonin-du-Var rental will grant you perfect seclusion, and the appliances and comforts you’d expect at your own house. Private pools, large landscaped gardens, barbecues, original stone architecture and shaded outdoor dining areas are just some of features at accommodation here.

Things to do

-Local heritage. There are several lovely old villages within a short drive of St-Antonin-du-Var. Tourtour is typically Provençal, with narrow winding streets and quaint stone houses. In the central square are olive trees brought over from Italy. Lorgues also has the characteristic warren of streets, with a 30-metre medieval clocktower and large sections of the old defences remaining, including two fortified gates. Entrecasteaux also merits a trip, and has a castle with grounds laid out by the man who designed the gardens at Versailles.

-Local walks. There are a couple of short looped trails starting in St-Antonin-du-Var that will take you out to the charming Provence countryside to see its vineyards and low hills – Le Collet du Suis takes no more than 90 minutes, and Des Colles à Mentonne is slightly longer, needing three hours to complete. Both walks are suitable for families. Near Carcès you can also discover the lake and waterfalls at Le Caramy.

-Other recreation. If you’re a golfer then there’s the18-hole Barbarous course at Brignoles, with a driving range and “Training Zone”. All kinds of other activities are available close by – take a kayak trip on the Argens, go on a horseback excursion with the many equestrian centres in the region, clamber up the rocks at Correns or simply find a quiet spot next to a stream for a picnic and paddle.

-Riviera. The ever-fashionable resort of Saint-Tropez can be reached in about an hour from the village. You can see first-hand the unique light that has inspired countless artists, visit stylish cafes and peruse the many elegant boutiques. There are seven beaches in the vicinity, the most popular of which is Pampelonne, which is also the longest in the area.

-Other excursions. Not far south of St-Antonin-du-Var is Thoronet Abbey, dating to the 1100s one of the best examples of a Cistercian abbey. It’s a large site, with many original elements that have stood the test of time. For a spectacular natural attraction, look no further than the Verdon Gorge to the northeast – it’s Europe’s answer to the Grand Canyon, reaching depths of more than 700 metres.

Weather in St-Antonin-du-Var

Visiting St-Antonin-du-Var holiday homes in summer it makes sense to pack plenty of sun block. This is one of France’s brightest areas – even winter days see a fair amount of sunshine. In the warmer months temperatures rise to the low-30s by day, and rain is practically unheard of until the sudden downpours and storms of September and October. Spring and autumn conditions are damper and milder, while a normal day in December or January sees highs of about ten degrees and lows hovering just above zero.

Travel to St-Antonin-du-Var

There are two airports about the same distance from St-Antonin-du-Var. The smaller of the two is Toulon-Hyères (TLN), about 80 kilometres south of the commune. It’s a destination with just a small amount of links to Britain, and only in the summer. The drive from Marseille Provence Airport (MRS) is a bit quicker because you can use the A7 and A8 autoroutes to reach your holiday rental in St-Antonin-du-Var. It’s also one of France’s major destinations, and served by a host of low-cost and upmarket airlines throughout the year.

Relax in out-of-the-way cottage

4 of 5
The cottage is in a collection of gites on a site which is out-of-the-way and secluded. There is a good level of privacy, so you can keep yourselves to yourselves if you wish. The cottage is on the first floor up a flight of steps - not suitable for people of limited mobility. There are 2 floors - kitchen/diner and toilet (no washing facilities in toilet) on the lower floor and a bedroom with attached bath/shower room. Mildly inconvenient having toilet and bathroom on different levels. No air conditioning, but the owner will loan you a fan. The weather was very hot during our visit and the nights were a bit uncomfortable, although the bed itself was fine. Kitchen quite well equipped with hob (gas and electric rings) and electric oven, fridge/freezer, kettle and coffee maker. Fair amount of work surface. Adequate pots and pans, cutlery, crockery, etc. but if you want to do any cooking I would advise you to take some cooks' knives. Plenty of space to sit outside - table and chairs on the verandah and more in the private garden attached to the cottage. Plenty of shade. There are lots of biting insects - ants, mosquitoes, flies so make sure you take plenty of insect repellent. This shouldn't put you off - just be prepared! The other facilities include a petanque court, which was well-used by a lot of the residents, and a really lovely swimming pool which had a proper deep-end. Plenty of space around the pool to sit and relax in the shade. The owner, Doug, is very helpful. He is American so speaks good English as well as French. The cottage is in an area of Provence that we weren't familiar with and merits exploration. Lots of villages - our favourites were Villecroze and Lorgues - but we also went for a trip into Haute Provence, which was fascinating. Overall, a really enjoyable stay.

Deux semaines magnifiques

5 of 5
Nous avons passés deux très belles semaines dans ce cottage. Tout le confort nécessaire pour pouvoir se relaxer et profiter des moments en famille. Une magnifique piscine, un très grand jardin (les enfants ont eu l'embarras du choix balançoire, trampoline, goal de foot, ...). Des propriétaires très discrets mais au petit soin quand c’est nécessaire. La région est superbe. Nous recommandons cette location.
