Var: cocktails on the French Riviera

Var, which lies in the Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur, is most famous as the home of the star-studded celebrity hotspot, Saint-Tropez. The town certainly lives up to its glamorous reputation with upmarket beach clubs and elegant waterfront eateries. It's not all glitz and glam though. Away from the French Riviera lie quaint fishing villages, splendid sun-soaked islands and enviably vineyard-laden mountainous landscape, which provides thrill-seekers with the perfect playground for outdoor adventures. Don't even think about skipping the Gorges du Verdon, a deep water-filled canyon that just begs to be canoed.

Soar like an eagle in Var

Var offers a long stretch of achingly beautiful Mediterranean coastline dotted with golden sandy beaches and an interior characterized by dramatic mountains like the Massif des Maures. This varying topography provides playgrounds for all sorts of adventures from hiking the scenic coastal trails to cycling along the winding country roads. From the mountain summits you can take flight in paragliders to soar on the morning thermals for gorgeous views of the southern French landscape. Alternatively, kick back on the beach in Saint-Tropez or hit the luxury shops for a little wallet-busting retail therapy.

Var: an achingly charming place packed with history

A good introduction to Var is the capital Toulon, a pretty little place with charming squares, independent stores and typically French food markets piled high with local produce. If you've scored a Var vacation rental in the city during the summer, take advantage of the dozens of free open-air concerts during the balmy evenings. It would be unthinkable to visit Var without seeing the Gorges du Verdon, a 25-kilometer-long often called the "French Grand Canyon". There are historical sites here aplenty, and it isn't hard to find old abbeys and centuries-old cathedrals to explore.

Var: a typically Mediterranean climate

Var is characterized by hot summers and mild winters, a typically Mediterranean climate. Nearly all travelers come to stay in the Var vacation rentals during the hot summers, an escape from the big cities. If you like to bask in sky high climes, June to August's mid-80s temperature might be just the ticket. However, the spring months just before the peak season can have a more agreeable temperature for some, particularly if you're looking to head off along the hiking trails. During winter, the number of tourists completely drops off, along with the rental prices, perfect for a little solitude.

Get your camera at the ready for Var

There's an enviable list of wildlife species which can be spotted near your Var vacation rental. You'll likely need to get trigger happy with your camera if you're going to catch some snaps of the birds of prey which soar over the gorges and canyons. You'll also want to keep your eyes peeled for chamois, a short-horned goat-antelope which thrives in the rough pasturelands in the valleys. If you're really lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of one of the wolves who have, to the chagrin of farmers and shepherds, started to increase in numbers in recent years.
