In an elevated, south-facing position with idyllic views of the Massif des Maures, Bastide du Figuier enjoys a privileged location just 4km from the typical Provençal town of Draguignan in the Var department of southern France, only half an hour from the glistening Côte d’Azur. This is an area filled with perched medieval villages, outstanding natural beauty, rolling hills of olive groves, renowned vineyards and wine châteaux (Domaines Ott and Château de Berne amongst many others) as well as historic sites (Abbaye du Thoronet is just 22km away). The diversity of the landscapes means there’s a wealth of outdoor activities available including horse-riding, hiking, cycling, rock-climbing, golf and watersports both on the French Riviera and Verdon Gorge. The nearby town of Draguignan (4km) is a great place to start your discovery of this authentic region. Visit on a Wednesday or Saturday morning when Place du Marché comes alive with many stalls selling all sorts of fresh produce and local delights such as olive oil and honey as well as seasonal fruit, vegetables, meat and cheeses. The town also has interesting art galleries and museums to visit as well as a great variety of shops and restaurants. There are two especially picturesque medieval villages to explore nearby; Flayosc (7km) and Lorgues (10km), both surrounded by beautiful landscapes so typical of Provence and feature charming restaurants and good bars. Flayosc still has a couple of mills producing excellent olive oil as well as being known for its honey whilst Lorgues hosts one of the largest markets in the region every Tuesday morning. Both villages are delightful places to sit back in an atmospheric café with a coffee or glass of local wine, soaking up the Provençal ambience around you. Other worthy villages to explore include Seillans (33km) and Bargème (45km), both classified as two of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’, historic Entrecasteaux (24km) with its 16th century château and La Garde-Freinet (32km) in the heart of the Massif des Maures. The pretty village of Aups (28km) is one of the gateways to the incredible Parc Naturel Régional du Verdon, a region known for its world-famous Verdon Gorges, parts of which can be reached in under an hour. Admire its awe-inspiring beauty and take part in a wealth of outdoor activities from white-water rafting and paragliding to horse-riding and canoeing. The beaches of the French Riviera and bay of Saint-Tropez can be reached in just half an hour with Sainte-Maxime only 35km away with its family-friendly sandy beaches and relaxed vibe. South of the bay, Saint-Tropez (50km) is also a wonderful day out whether experiencing the glamour and charm of the former fishing village or spending time on the renowned Pampelonne beach with its glitzy beach clubs and magnificent watersports. Nice Airport is just under an hour away or if arriving by train, a TGV service from Paris arrives at Gare Des Arcs just 11km away.
