The Var is one of the largest departments in France. At the foothills of the Alps and spreading down to the coast of St Tropez, Toulon and Marseille, half of the region is covered in forest and its surprisingly mountainous. The mountains include the Gordes du Verdon at the back on the edge of the plateau of the Vaucluse is where you begin, tumbling down to the Massif de l'Esterel on the boarders of the Alpes-Maritimes, Cote d'Azur to the east and the Massif des Maures to the west towards the St Tropez coastline. Travelling to the north west is the mountain ridge of Saint-Baume which stretches into the Bouches-du-Rhône.
It is an area of wild, rugged natural beauty interspersed with perched Medieval villages and lush green vineyards in every direction.

Stretching from a few kilometres west of the Cannes coastline, crossing Fréjus St Raphael, Sainte Maxime, around the Gulf of St Tropez and along to the beautiful coast of Hyères and the Giens Peninsular. Continue the coastal journey will take you across the Camargue, the rugged Calanques to the resort of Bandol and Saint Cyr sur Mer. A coastline of diverse beauty.
