The Côte d'Azur, Cannes, and Nice, are less than an hour and a half drive through the Massif of Esterel.
The beaches of Saint-Tropez, Porquerolles Islands, Port-Cros, and Plage du Levant aren't much further in a nook behind the Massif des Maures.

Arles and the Camargue are 50 kilometers away. Les Baux de Provence, Saint-Rémy de Provence, the Lubéronand Avignon, its historical Cité des Papes and its Festival are all within an hour drive.On the way there, do get lost in the permanent Antique Market of Isle-sur-la-Sorgue.

Discover the country of writer Jean Giono through the "Lavender Trail" on the way to the Southern Alpes. Or better, by going through the Gorges of the Verdon River, forming a maze of emerald green waters.
