Villas to rent on the French Riviera
Explore the Coastal Towns of the South of France
The coastal region of the Var is perhaps one of the most sought after holiday locations for villa holidays in the South of France, yet remains slightly less well known than the illustrious counterparts of Nice, Antibes and Monaco further along the coast. Just to the east of Toulon lies Hyères, a lovely seaside town which has become a favourite among French and foreign tourists alike. It is popular both for its own beaches and its proximity to the lovely piece of paradise off the South coast, the Ile de Porquerolles. The island offers lovely white sand beaches and perfect crystal clear water, making it the ideal day trip time after time. It is also unspoilt with the bike being the preferred method of transport around the island.
Nearby, towns including Borme les Mimosas and Le Lavandou also
offer beautiful beaches and are located just a short drive away
from vineyards located slightly further away from the coast.
Further along the coastline lies the glamorous port town of St
Tropez. Famous since the time of Brigitte Bardot, the town is
worthy of a weeklong holiday on its own. A gentle stroll
around La Citadelle opens up views of the whole town.
Moving even further east and the scenery is no less spectacular. Fréjus, Boulouris and St Raphaël have beautiful long sandy beaches offering enough space for everyone. For a relaxing day of doing nothing, the small village of Agay has a curved bay beach with barely any waves, making it the ideal place to take small children or to float on the water all day long. All of these coastal towns have the stunning backdrop of the red rocks of the Esterel mountain range, which offers great rock climbing for the more adventurous.
In the long summer season, Boulouris normally runs a market with fresh local produce on both Monday and Thursday, offering the perfect place to stock up on supplies or to buy gifts for those unfortunate enough to be back at home.
The entire coastline from Hyères through to Cannes is stunning and driving along the coastal road offers panoramic views of both the open Mediterranean Sea and the stunning mountains. There is plenty to see further inland with vineyards making the famous Provence rosé wine. With beautiful weather and warm water for several months of the year, the coastal region of the Var is the ideal holiday spot.
