Between Cannes and Saint-Raphaël, far from the hustle and bustle of seaside campsites on the French Riviera but just a thirty-minute drive from the Mediterranean, the Var is home to hinterland gems: nine hilltop villages with an irresistible Provençal atmosphere in the Fayence area. Local artists exhibit their creations, in Tourrettes for example, while climbers and hikers are fans of Saint-Paul and Bagnols-en-Forêt with woods embalmed with Mediterranean essences and the Gorges du Blavet.
Fans of culture and discovery will particularly appreciate Seillans, proudly named one of the most beautiful villages in France. Or push up to Mons at 814 metres of altitude, dominated by Mount Lachens, the highest point of the Var. Wind up your discovery of the PACA region with a swim in Lac de Saint-Cassien before returning to your Var campsite!
