Culture & Discovery in the Var

Make the most of your campsite holiday to explore the Var's natural and cultural heritage. From Provence to the Côte d’Azur (French Riviera), discover exceptional natural sites, towns and villages full of history, and the unusual or iconic cultural sites of the Var. From the glowing cliffs of the Massif d’Esterel mountains to the green landscapes of the Gorges du Verdon and the Hyères islands surrounded by an azure sea, there are so many surprises to discover! Explore Saint-Tropez, the port, the town and the citadel, Saint-Raphaël and its museum of underwater archaeology or the picturesque alleyways of Bormes-les-Mimosas ... If you love history and old stones, you should visit the old town of Hyères-les-Palmiers and the ruins of the castle, the Roman remains and the medieval heritage of Fréjus, the lakeside town of Port Grimaud ‘The Provençal Venice’ or the Square Tower in Sainte-Maxime. In search of authenticity? Explore the picturesque medieval villages perched on the rocky foothills around Fayence, go on an excursion into the heart of vineyards and olive trees, to the heights of the fragrant hills ... Stroll through the colourful stalls in the Provençal markets or the sumptuous gardens of Grasse, the world capital of perfumes! Do you want to explore some new horizons? Take a boat trip to the Golden Isles of Porquerolles and Port-Cros or stop at Toulon, famous for its port, its arsenal and its harbour, the most beautiful of Europe ... Guaranteed escapism!
