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.
