The Var

The Provence–Var–Toulon–Hyères Guide gives you the most comprehensive all year round information on the Var, one of the most special departments of Provence–Alpes–Côte–d'Azur, with its superb hotels, fine vineyards, seductive beach plages, medieval villages, mountains and gorges.

This Var Guide provides you with a description of 15 towns and villages and links to Hotels, Golf Hotels, Restaurants, Property Sales, Villa Rental, Yacht Rental, Car Hire, Flight information, Regional wine and food, as well as special places of interest.

The Var has very varied seasons which makes it just perfect for exploring the countryside at any time of the year. Visit the small towns with their leisurely pace, weekly markets and special events.

To visit the Var in all four seasons, the best way is to fly into Nice Airport — the second largest airport in France.
