Chambres d'hôtes in Var

Solskin i Var i Frankrig

Warm Var - a departement in Provence

Var (dep. 83) is one of the largest of the departements that make up the PACA.

Many have been to Provence without knowing that they have been in Var. Often it is referred to as "Nice's hinterland", and many do not know the departement, but on the other hand, they know the cities and other place names associated therewith. If you say St. Tropez, Sainte Maxime, Gorges du Verdon etc., people know what you are talking about.

Here are a lot of very nice places - and as shown elsewhere on this website, we are especially pleased with the area around Cotignac. However, the area is perhaps known for the "French Grand Canyon", the Gorges de Verdon. A very beautiful and unique area, which a lot of tourists go to visit. It's also huge, so it's easy to find your own way to places where you can have nice experiences - if not entirely for yourself, then without all the tourists of Provence in same area. 

The picture above shows a look at the artificial lake, Lac St. Croix, with some of the clearest water you can see in this world. The lake, the life around the lake, the surrounding villages and, for instance hiking in the cliffs are unique experiences that we would like to guide you to.

La Câlinade

If you consider going to Gorges du Verdon, then we have the place for you to stay. At Nathalie and Philippe you will find it all. A wonderful place - and the perfect starting point for trips into some of the most amazing scenery that France can offer. Lots of opportunities to travel around by car, by bike and on foot on one of the area's many marked hiking routes.

Five minutes drive from Lac St. Croix and a lot of water activities.

We have a great love for France and especially for the south of France. That's why we made C’est la Vie | Provence Travel.

All in all, we love to travel - and like everyone else, we get help from the internet. But we also think that everything has become very impersonal. We can buy our travels or stays with huge companies that are completely impersonal, who do not know the word service and who are not available in speech. That is another reason for having made C’est la Vie | Provence Travel. If you want expertise, personality and service, try us out. On top we are cheaper than the aforementioned companies, because we do not add "service fee" etc. on the price.
