A visit to the attractive 17th century Chapelle Sainte-Anne in Saint-Tropez is above all a chance to admire one of the finest views of the bay and the famous port of Saint-Tropez.
It was originally constructed to thank God for sparing Saint-Tropez from the plague.
From the top of the Sestrière, near the col d'Allos where it rises, to Lake Sainte-Croix into which it flows, the Verdon river cuts a deep swathe through the limestone plateau of Haute Provence, forming the dramatic Verdon Gorge with its huge, overhanging cliffs, up to 250 m high.
Admire this unique, vertiginous landscape from the natural viewing points recommended in the hiking trails and the Mesclia balcony, in particular. Or marvel at the spectacle from below, from the reflective turquoise waters of the Verdon, perfect for rafting, river boarding, canyoning and other white water sports.
The more foolhardy among you may prefer to discover the gorge at high speed - bungee jumping from the Pont de l'Artuby (Artuby Bridge)!
The Domaine du Rayol is a 20 hectare protected natural area, owned by the Conservatoire du littoral (French coastal protection agency), at the foot of the Massif des Maures and opposite the Îles d'Hyères, in Var, between Le Lavandou and Saint-Tropez.
The landscape gardener Gilles Clément designed the Jardin des Méditerranées there, an invitation on a journey through the Mediterranean landscapes of the world and landscapes with a more arid or sub-tropical climate.
Seventy per cent of the Var, which is one of the most densely wooded regions in France, is covered by forest. The Massif des Maures mountain range, between Fréjus and Hyères is one of the largest wooded areas in the Var. Cork oaks thrive in its schistose soil; their dark, leathery leaves provide shelter for the lizards, birds of prey and Hermann tortoises - a protected species seen only in Corsica and the Massif des Maures - who make their home here.
Take a hike along the scenic paths and discover, at your own pace, this bewitching national treasure, sadly under threat from summer forest fires.
Aqualand water parks offer a day of aventures for all the family or among friends. Here is water in all its most fun forms: a wave pool, a bubble area, and a hot tub.
Climb aboard a giant buoy and let yourself be drawn into the rapids or climb to the top of the slides, solo or with friends, and get ready to slide.
Spinning, jumping, bumping, in tunnels or on parallel tracks so you can race your friends, the water slides offer lots of ways to have fun with the family or with friends.
