The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
THE COTE D’AZUR has been known since the early nineteenth century as Europe’s leading playground. As a holiday destination it is unsurpassed in the world, offering a beautiful stretch of coastline backed by the jagged peaks of the Alps, superbly maintained top class resorts, magnificent promenades and gardens, as well as a plethora of historic towns and ancient hilltop villages amid fabulous countryside, and with an exceptional climate, cuisine and wine.
The coastline is an ever-changing series of glimmering bays interspersed with rugged rocky peninsulas and dramatic cliffs falling straight into the sea. The coastal towns are renowned the world over. Cannes is a marvellous resort, to be visited not only for the superb location and star-studded Croisette, but also for its old town of narrow, cobbled streets leading up the Château and a fabulous panorama over the bay and offshore islands.
Nice’s Promenade des Anglais, old town and perched castle are equally enticing and, if boats are your passion, Antibes, complete with ancient ramparts, is the largest leisure port and home to a stunning array of yachts. Further south, there’s quaint St. Raphael, lively Fréjus, chic Port Grimaud and Ste. Maxime and, of course, glitzy St. Tropez, with its endless bay and picture book port.
The coastal drive on the famous “Corniche” roads between Nice and Monaco will have you gasping at the spectacular views around every bend, while the impressive coast road from La Napoule to St. Raphael is full of dramatic scenery backed by the red, craggy mountains of the Esterel National Park. It is here you will find our nearest coastal beaches (25-30 minutes drive) with a choice of sheltered coves or long sandy bays around Fréjus/St. Raphael.
In the countryside behind the coast you will discover breathtakingly scenic routes winding over hills and mountains and through gorges, past ancient hillside villages with their labyrinths of narrow streets and stairways, invariably leading to the fortified château at the top and commanding an impressive view of the surrounding area.
Fayence, Seillans, Bargemon, Callas, Claviers, Mons, St. Cézaire and Cabris are amongst many to be explored. You can also take a trip into the Alps or visit one of the spectacular gorges - Gorges de La Siagne, Châteaudouble or the renowned Gorges du Verdon, the deepest canyon in Europe with its 500 metre sheer cliffs.
The area where Montauroux is located is known as the “Pays de Fayence”, Fayence being the largest local village, while the “département” is The Var, boasting some of the finest scenery Provence has to offer. The countryside is predominantly wooded hillsides dotted with picturesque, perched villages and interspersed with luxuriant valleys and deep gorges sparkling with fast flowing rivers and crystalline rock pools. The clear waters of nearby Lake St. Cassien are excellent for swimming. It is also famous for carp fishing and offers a range of watersports. The nearest lake access is located a short drive down the road and there are many beaches and swimming areas dotted around the lake.
You can also take a trip into the Tanneron hills and enjoy marvellous views over the lake and the Esterel Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty and spectacular peaks. Most outdoor activities are available in the area, including golf, tennis, horseriding, canyoning, gliding, watersports, climbing and hiking.
