The small villages of Provence
Driving around Var you can stop in almost every small village to get a sense of the true Provencal atmosphere. You have cliffside Chateaudouble next to us, tiny Ampus and further west Aups and their lively market on Saturdays. Bargeme and Comps sur Artuby in a more moutainous terrain with eagles hovering the sky and neighboring Callas and Claviers or beautiful Seillans and Fayence to mention some of them.
Gorges du Verdon
Europe's greatest gorge - the Gorge du Verdon with is amazing views is only a short drive away. It's a good daytrip going round it and visiting the village Moustier Saint Marie on the way with its hillside chapel and lively village in summer. You get an impressive view of the huge gorge on both riversides at different viewpoints.
The Côte d'Azur
The well known and beautiful coast of southern France is not far away. You can take a day on the beach in Saint Augylf, go shopping in Nice or wander the charming streets of Antibes. It's a beautiful drive from Saint Raphael around the red cliff Esterel along the coast to Mandelieu La Napoule. It takes about two hours and is definitely worth the time and the trip.
