Thought of by some as the most beautiful village in France - Gassin in the Var region of southern France is a delight. Perched high up on a rock, right next to St Tropez, this is the perfect village from which to explore the region and enjoy the Cote d'Azur lifestyle. Explore the ramparts protecting the city, its winding streets lined with ancient houses and sites such as the Galerie dei Barri - thought to be the oldest art gallery in the area. There’s also the beautiful old church, La Chapelle Notre-Dame de Compassion, for a real sight into another time. Take a walk along the Promenade dei Barri, a medieval terrace where you can enjoy a drink or delicious meal overlooking the panoramic surrounding hills and vineyards, or wander down to Port Gassin, a growing port, popular with those who like to sail.
