Provence-French Riviera

Var

Var
The Essential

Beaches, islands and great climate: Var has all the ingredients for idyllic holidays. So grab your sandals and hurry to this magnificent coastline, from St-Cyr-sur-Mer to the Esterel Massif.
Your itinerary could include hikes on the St-Mandrier Peninsula, diving at Port-Cros underwater circuit (sentier sous-marin), a drink on the mythical port of St-Tropez, some down-time on the beaches of Ste-Maxime before a night of partying on the coast's trendy dance floors.
For simpler pleasures closer to nature, recharge your batteries in the hinterland of the Massif des Maures and Dracénie.
