The Var, the ideal destination for your camping holiday
There aren't many regions that can pride themselves in providing a range of landscapes as diverse as those of the Var! This multi-faceted department will be just the thing for meeting your needs when it comes to getting away from it all: relax and sunbathe on the sublime beaches of the Mediterranean, hillside walks in the villages of the inland region of the Var, excursions along the idyllic shores of the Îles d’Or, and afterwards a nice rest in your favourite 4 or 5 star campsite!
Just a few minutes from the beaches, treat yourself to an excellent pied-à-terre in the form of a tent or cottage with all the mod cons and get ready for the good life beneath the sunshine of Provence! With sports, evening entertainment and bathing in the heated swimming pools, come and enjoy your holidays in total freedom!
Visit the Var with the family
So what's children's favourite pastime on holiday in the Var? Bathing! And that's a good thing, as this sun-drenched region is home to a superb coastline with family-friendly beaches and secret coves for you to discover together. Come and try the turquoise water of the beaches of La Verne in La Seyne-sur-Mer, and of L’Estagnol in Bormes-les-Mimosas or the bay of Agay at the foot of the Estérel massif.
Fancy the idea of heading out to sea? Then set sail for the Île de Porquerolles and discover Notre-Dame beach, known as Europe's loveliest! And people who may want to alternate between saltwater and freshwater should head for the breathtaking scenery of the Gorges du Verdon.
Visit the Var as a couple
After walks hand-in-hand looking out to the crystal clear water of the Mediterranean, gain some real altitude when you set off to explore the wonderful inland region of the Var! With hilltop villages and the scented garrigue scrubland, the Haut-Var really awakens the senses of people in search of peace and authenticity.
So head off for a look around Seillans, a commune that's characteristic of Provence and listed as one of the "most beautiful villages in France". On the Cotignac road, stop off at the abbey of Le Thoronet, one of the three Cistercian marvels of Provence. And en route, the market stalls abounding with honey, olive oil, sun-baked vegetables and local wines are just waiting to be tasted as a way of rounding off your journey of the senses!
