Cœur du Var
All the landscapes of Provence come together here
A rich heritage
Visit the Cistercian abbey of Le Thoronet, stroll through village alleyways in or linger on the perched chapel circuit from Sainte Philomène in Puget-Ville to Vieux-Cannet
Walk in the Maures massif, ride on the Maures plain or cycle in the hills covered in garrigue scrubland and pine on over 100km of marked trails
Taste a great Provence rosé at its vineyard, sample honey, chestnut cream, olive oil, seasonal fruits and vegetables, or wander through the markets
Meander among trees, see tortoises, get up close to butterflies, drive a Formula 1 or go back in time aboard the tourist train’s ‘Micheline’ rail car
Breaks for families and couples
Enjoy charming bed & breakfast accommodation or the freedom of a campsite, stay in a gîte, be bowled over by something more unconventional, or choose a traditional hotel.
Thrill to the sound of medieval music in the Abbaye du Thoronet, or celebrate young French and international musicians at the Chien Rouge in Le Cannet or the Nuits Blanches in Le Thoronet.
11 villages, 11 surprises
Besse lake, the Carnoules locomotive, the Pierre Plantée menhir, Vieux-Cannet, Vieux-Flassans, the legend of the flying donkey, the Hexagonal Tower, le Grand-Père Châtaignier, Notre Dame des Anges, Le Thoronet Abbey, and Sainte Philomène chapel
