About this location
The Provence region
The Green Province (Provence Verte) is the heart of the Var region in Provence, South of France. The region is superb, with picturesque countryside and lovely small villages which you will discover as you driving along the small and quiet roads. Local vineyards produce excellent well-known wines, which you can taste at various domaines as you go around the region.
The people have a soft singing accent and live life at a relaxed pace. You can admire the stunning scenery, including olive trees, lavender fields and many flowers which vary depending of the season. On your way, you will find shade and small restaurant terraces under the typical platane trees, perfect for enjoying a quick drink.
This green province is midway between the sea and the Alps, close to the splendid turquoise Verdon Lake and all its beautiful surroundings and nautical activities, as well as the village of Moustiers with its famous potteries.
Along the coast, which starts only 60km away, one should not forget Cassis and the boat tour along the little cliffs, or the boat ride between Sainte Maxime and Saint Tropez. If one visits Marseille and its port, this should be an opportunity to taste their famous bouillabaisse (fish soup specialty). Or Cannes and its summer film festival, Avignon, Monte Carlo Principality, Gordes (one of the most beautiful place), Cavaillon, the waterfall from Sillan La Cascade
Aups has a long and rich history, with some buildings and construction dating from the 14th century. The village is in a strategic location and known as the main village of the high Var (le Haut Var). Despite being just a village, you will find almost everything you might need, including excellent medical care. With only 2,000 inhabitants, the village more than doubles its population in summer thanks to a worldwide reputation.
Visitors enjoy discovering the secrets of all the small roads from the village which bring you to many vibrant places, restaurants and cafés. As soon as you move out of the centre of the village you find yourself surrounded by lavender fields and many olive trees. Of course one should visit the region's typical & colourful markets, and try the tasty local food products, ie. cheese, fruits, vegetables, and not to forget the Truffles of Aups.

"Good location, plenty of space set in nice grounds"
We had a week here in August 2013 a party of 7 adult family members and we were impressed with it's location on the edge of the village of Aups with it's numerous restaurants and bars. There is easy access to the delights of Provence particularly Nice and St Tropez.
The village sleeps 8 and the facilities are big enough to cope with extensive grounds and a large pool.
The villa could have been cleaned better with a few cobwebs at high level and we had to ask for the towels to be delivered but these were supplied within the hour.
