Luxury villa rental Var - Seraphin is a charming, traditional villa just outside the village of Cotignac. The villa is built around a central courtyard and swimming pool with most rooms opening onto this delightful area. In the summer months, the terrace is a blaze of vibrant colour with many carefully maintained flower pots and tubs.
High in the hills of the Var region, Cotignac offers a selection of shops and restaurants. There are many beautiful towns and villages in the vicinity; Tourtour, known as the ' village in the sky' with breathtaking views and stunning sunsets. Entrecasteaux with its marvellous chateau and gardens and the 12 th century Cistercian monastery, Abbey de Thoronet. Further afield, the town of Lorgues hosts the best market in the area each Tuesday, and you can' t leave without enjoying an evening meal in Aups, truffle capital of Provence.
Close to the Parc Naturel Regional du Verdon, both Lac de Ste Croix and the spectacular Gorge du Verdon are within 40 mins for wind surfing, sailing, swimming, hiking, mountain biking, climbing, canoeing, kayaking, white water rafting; but if you take a short break you will also appreciate the truly stunning scenery! For a more relaxing day out, Aix-en Provence offers wide, leafy avenues, fountains and pavement cafes and St Tropez offer glitz and glamour centred around the old port; both just over an hour away from this luxury villa rental Var.
The great thing about this villa is its fantastic situation near Cotignac, a village which has become one of the absolute favourites amongst the more discerning visitors to the Var. In addition to the lovely atmosphere created by the weekly markets, restaurants and great little shops, the immediate surroundings offer exciting walks to explore the steep cliffs full of caves above the village. These caves have a long and exciting history, they were used as shelter by prehistoric man, and you can actually walk up there along narrow paths (with the protection of a rail!). The views from there must be some of the best, absolutely amazing! Another cool thing to do is to visit the famous waterfall, all of 42 m high, in the nearby village of Sillans-la-Cascade six kilometres away, all in a beautiful setting. And afterwards you could treat yourself to lunch in a restaurant, one of my favourites being Les Pins.
