The Provence-Alps-Côte d`Azur is a world of its own, a region which has everything. The name says it all. The aromas and colours of the Provence,  the unspoiled beauty of the southern Alps and the azure blue sea of the Côte d`Azur. The VAR is the part of the Provence, which is being characterised by magnificent mountains,  gorges through which rivers wind their way and small villages which seem to cling to the slopes. It is certainly worthwhile to spend some time exploring this beautiful area. Some kilometres away from the famous coastal strip, the green valleys and wooded hills of Ste.-Baume and the Massif des Maures with waterfalls, streams and caves are to be found. The Massif de l'Esterel lies between Cannes and Frejus. In one of the most unspoiled beauty spots of the Provence, one can walk or travel for hours undisturbed. Several old villages can be found in the VAR, with their narrow streets, old churches, fountains and pictoresque squares. Certainly worth a visit  are: Seillans, Fayence, Barjols, Aups, Cotignac, Lorgues and Salernes and Ramatuelle, Grimaud and Gassin, which are close to St. Tropez. Nearby Lorgues (8 km) is a good example of the many endearing towns and villages so characteristic of this area. A market in the shade of centuries-old plane trees, buzzing with activity on market days, the real Provence. A pastis on a patio, an espresso in a café, a narrow alleyway full of surprises, a quaint little church: this is the atmosphere which surrounds you in his beautiful part of the Provence. In this region, orange and olive trees are to be found along with vineyards, fields of  lavender and beautiful mimosa. The Gorges du Verdon is just a short distance from de VAR.
