A vast untamed area in the Var between the Mediterranean Sea and Provence, the Massif d'Estérel will enchant you with its craggy slopes, narrow gorges and vertiginous peaks, all formed by volcanic rock of an amazing red that contrasts with the shimmering blue of the sea. Covered in forests of parasol pines, the Massif beckons to be explored on foot, by bike or on horseback. To the south, the coast road between Frèjus, Saint Raphaêl and the Alpes Maritime is one of the most picturesque roads in France. The cliffs tumble into the sea and form coves that cradle beautiful little seaside resorts such as Agay and Théoule sur Mer. To the north, the Massif opens out into the Var and its hills with the charming Provençal villages of Fayence and Bagnols-en-Forêt, amongst others.
A feast for the senses.
