Welcome to Provence!
Provence is the land of Pagnol. Have you always dreamed of going on holiday there? As you are right, it is one of the most beautiful regions in France. Between the song of the cicadas, pines, sun and lavender, you will be able to recharge your batteries and discover the richness of authentic terroirs. If you are looking for a holiday rental in the Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur region, don't move, with bed & breakfast in Var, you are on the right site!
A guest room on the coast or in the hinterland?
The French Riviera is famous all over the world. Its sandy beaches and azure blue water will ensure you a pleasant stay under the palm trees in a bed and breakfast of the Var region. But if you want to escape the crowds of people along the coast of southern France in summer, you will appreciate the calm of the beautiful villages in the Var hinterland. Nature stretches as far as the eye can see between fields of vines, lavender and olive trees. The Provençal landscapes are a real living postcard, an invitation to contemplation, in all seasons.
Staying on the French Riviera
The Var coasts go from Bandol to Fréjus via Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer, Sainte-Maxime, Saint-Tropez (just next to Ramatuelle), Le Lavandou, Hyères and Toulon. If you dream of vacations by the sea, the Var is more peaceful than the Bouches du Rhône or the Alpes-Maritimes.
Staying in the Haut Var
Further back, the Var extends to the regional park of Verdon and the lake of Sainte Croix with notably on the road, Saint Maximin la Sainte Baume, Brignoles et Draguignan. While crossing the Var, you will discover small Provençal villages, each one more charming than the next : Correns, Barjols, Tavernes, Aups, Cotignac, Sillans, Salernes, Carcès ou encore Entrecasteaux.
Even if you don't have time to stay in every village in the Var, it is highly recommended that you take the time to visit them. Each village has a particular history and charm. They have often preserved an authenticity that is no longer found on the French Riviera.
How to choose your bed & breakfast?
You will find on the site a large number of cottages and guest rooms for rent for one night, one week or more. Here are the important criteria to consider for a holiday rental :
- accommodation capacity : if you come with your family, you will need several rooms.
- location : some people want to sleep in the middle of nature, in a wooded park, in the hills and the scrubland, others prefer to be close to the city centre.
- services and equipment : the swimming pool is essential in summer to cool off. You will also appreciate having air conditioning.
- internet access : free wifi or at an extra cost, broadband if possible.
- the presence of a table d'hôtes or restaurants in the surroundings if you do not want to cook.
- accomodation rules : pets welcome with or without a surcharge?
- payment terms : in some cases, the cottage or guest house accepts holiday vouchers.
Whether it's for a relaxing weekend or a week-long getaway, holiday rentals in Provence are ideal if you want to spend holidays with your family. You can even rent a fully privatized guest house or villa with garden, swimming pool and even jacuzzi. A bastide in the Luberon in the middle of a green setting? Charming guest rooms with a view of the vineyard? The Provençal hospitality will allow you to spend an unforgettable stay.
Take the time to look at the reviews available on Internet for each guest house. The info contained in these reviews will give you a good idea of the level of services offered on site. The Var covers a vast area and finding the right accommodation can take time.
Then stay in a Provencal farmhouse, a wine estate or an Azure villa, it's up to you to choose according to your budget and your expectations! Don't forget hotels which are a good alternative in some cities where bed and breakfasts are overpriced.
What to do in Var
The number of available activities is pretty unlimited both in terms of sports activities and cultural visits. Walks in the Maures massif, the Esterel creeks or the Verdon nature park are an excellent way to recharge your batteries. The Var also has a very rich cultural and gastronomic heritage based on crafts : lavender, olive oil and AOC wine. You will never have enough of discovering the perched villages of Haute Provence. You will see the Provencal living environment in its most authentic and natural.
Of course, you will also enjoy spending some time by the Mediterranean Sea. While the beaches are crowded during the school holidays, they are very pleasant outside the high tourist season. Nautical activities are not lacking on the Coast and in the Gorges du Verdon.
