Situated between the sea and the mountains, the Var offers a diversity of landscapes and countryside ; a rich historical and natural heritage, including its traditions, arts, crafts and gastronomy.

The river Verdon has hollowed out a deep canyon of in limestone, unique throughout Europe.
The panoramas to be enjoyed along this naturally protected site are breathtaking. The villages built along the edges of the canyon have an old fashioned provençal charm.
Constituted in 1997, the Natural Regional Park of the Verdon has grown to take in 178000 hectares where it’s possible to practice various outdoor activities including unusual and exciting sports.

An architectural master piece of the « romanesque » style, it is one of three
provençal abbeys, the others being Sénanque and Silvacane.
Founded in 1146 by the cistercian monks of Tourtour, it was built in the heart
of the oakforest. Its austere and  simple beauty is comes from the fine balance between its geometric architecture and the natural play of light. Its accoustics are perfect for voices.

Villecroze is tucked into the hollow of a limestone hillside.
Its trogloditic caves, originally formed by the water of melting glaciers, were fortified during the XVIth century by a local Lord or « seigneur »of Villecroze. They look out over two hectares of magnificent park land, where one can find a collection of rare essences, and a variety of trees of mediterranean origin.
