Location description from owner

The Provence region

The ancient medieval town of Carcsès stands on the hill where the waters of the Argens and Caramy rivers meet, in the heart of Var region, at 115m above sea level, between the Provençal Alps and the Mediterranean beaches.

It is a typical small Provençal town, sleepy in winter and lively in summer, with a population of around 3,000, surrounded by pine woods and picturesque hills. Every year, the area attracts numerous nature lovers, thanks to its striking scenery, shaded edges of its rivers, and many walking and cycling paths.

There are several restaurants in Carces and plenty more in about 30 minutes drives radius. There are numerous vineyards, providing plenty of opportunity for wine tasting and you can also buy local cheese and olive oil on the local markets or directly from the farms.

Carcès traces its history back to 11th century, when the first lords of Carcès, the Châteaurenards, built the fort on the site in the year 1000.

But the village got particularly famous in the second half of 16th century during The French Wars of Religion. These wars were a series of conflicts fought between the Catholic League and the Huguenots from the middle of the sixteenth century to the Edict of Nantes in 1598.

Louis XIV and his court stayed in the village in 1660 when on pilgrimage of the area. The castle, which accommodated him, was partially destroyed during the Second World war, and the ruins have been converted into a theatre.

Carces

The freshwater lake (Lac de Carcès) provides clean water for the town of Toulon. Although swimming is not allowed, the lake is famous for pike, crayfish and trout fishing. Licence is required to fish in the lake (information on how to get a license is on request. Alternatively, look on our website). There is another small lake nearby where swimming is permitted.

Close to several golf courses. Barbaroux Golf Club only 10 miles away. Saint-Endreol Golf Club, Fregate Golf Club, Le Parc du Golf Saint-Jean are also close by.

Castles, abbeys, chapels, museums, even a facinating orthodox monastery nearby.
