One of the most sought after destinations are the islands off the Hyères harbour that can be reached by a short boat trip. These islands offer scenic walking trails, both along sandy beaches and rocky inland hills.

Day excursions could include a trip to Toulon, France’s second largest naval port and sitting in one of the most secure and beautiful harbours of the Mediterranean. Spend a day mingling with the rich and famous in Saint Tropez, or perhaps sip a drink on the Cours Mirabeau in Aix-en-Provence. Head to Cannes and enjoy the pretty tree-lined boulevard of La Croisette where the annual film festival is held. Head further north for a day trip to the Verdon Gorge (the Grand Canyon of France), and the Sainte-Croix Lake for rafting, canoeing and extraordinary scenery.

For the more active there are wonderful footpaths in the surrounding hills. Whilst the Almanarre peninsula at Hyeres is a hot spot for windsurfers and kite surfers with protected areas for swimming. For keen cyclists you are spoilt for choice - the Massif des Maures on your way to St Tropez, the climb up to Mont Faron for stunning views over Toulon harbour, further north is the St Baume Plateau (the subject of Cezanne's many paintings) and further west the climb up to Evenos, to name a few.

A glorious haven for outdoor lovers

  • 5 of 5

La Cousteline is in a dreamy location, in the hills and away from it all. And yet it's in the heart of Provence - rose wine on tap - and situated a short distance from the centre of the village (Sollies Toucas). The bakery's croissants are the best I have tasted for a long time, and are not to be missed!

We ate out at the restaurant Lou Pitchoun in Sollies Pont one evening - superb - and all other evenings (and breakfasts too) we ate out on one of the two terraces at La Cousteline. What a way to start and end the day.

We hired road bikes from Syril bike hire in La Londe-les-Maures and spent three days cycling around the area. The bikes were excellent and inexpensive. Our cycling days were punctured with delicious lunches.

At the bottom of the garden live the lovely Stratos and Catherine, who will look after you during your stay. Catherine's English is superb and she is equally happy to converse in pigeon French if you wish to give the lingo a go. Try reike from Stratos. An additional point of relaxation.

Bonnes vacances!

Tranquil paradise

  • 5 of 5

A charming, well equipped and clean cottage that exceeded all expectations on a windy lane high up in the mountain but with all facilities (TV and internet). Very friendly and helpful caretaker living nearby helped with any questions we had and was full of local knowledge, she also showed us many interesting things, as well as taking care of the salt water swimming pool. A 5 minute drive from a small village where you could buy most things for cooking and a great base from which to visit Toulon (boat trip recommended), Mont Faron (stunning views) and many places to eat. Sat outside to have breakfast everyday, a bit hot mid afternoon (pool necessary but perfect all evening. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and look forward to going again.
