Tourism, holidays & travel in the Var

With its 341,000 hectares of forest, the Var is the second most wooded département in France, after the Landes. Benefiting from many sunshine hours and a pleasant climate all year round, the Var also owns an exceptional coast: 432 kilometres of coasts going from fine sand beaches to rocky capes and wild creeks. It has lots to offer sporty types, relaxation addicts, nature lovers and fans of Provençal architecture, including authentic and peaceful inland countryside, charming hilltop villages to wander around, unspoiled islands, flavoursome Provençal cuisine, numerous seaside resorts on the French Riviera and remarkable natural sites such as the impressive Verdon canyon.
