The Mediterranean coastline of the Var region enjoys 430km of sandy beaches, hidden coves sheltered by pine groves, and some of the most enjoyable resorts in the heart of the Côte d’Azur. Although the experience can be somewhat fraught in the summer months, if you can brave the crowds there are delightful towns all along the coast and inland. St-Tropez was a sleepy fishing village until the 1930s when its magical coastal light was discovered by artists, to be followed several decades later by the international jet set. Nowadays it is one of many Côte d’Azur resorts seeing the rich and famous from all over pitching up in their superyachts. Ste-Maxime faces St-Tropez across its harbour, and has a fine beach; Fréjus and St-Raphaël are pleasantly tranquil, overlooked by the lovely rugged scenery of the Massif de l’Esterel. The arrière-pays (inland) is a rich tapestry of beautiful hilltop villages: Seillans, Fayence, Bargemon, Mons. Inland, are the valley towns of Draguignan, Lorgues and the beautiful Abbaye du Thoronet.
