The villages of the Var
The quintessential spot to discover village life in Provence is in the Var, the département in Provence located on the coast between Marseille and Nice, and rolling inland to the hills. The Var is an area closely associated with Marcel Pagnol, rather than Peter Mayle.
Hilltop villages, such as La Cadière d'Azur, and Le Castellet dot the countryside amid gently undulating vineyards.
