Walking and cycling along the Var coast

From your holiday home near Cavalaire-sur-Mer, set out and discover the Var coast. To the north of Rayol Canadel you can explore the Massif des Maures. The perfect place for a stroll, this wooded area has cork oaks, heathers, eucalyptus and arbutus trees. More energetic walkers can take the steep coastal paths of the Var and follow the sheer rocky coastline plunging to spectacular inlets and fine sandy beaches.

Walkers can climb the Massif des Maures, a small range of mountains  between Hyères and Fréjus that reaches 780 metres at its highest point, or go from Bormes-les-Mimosas to Grasse along the 130 km Mimosa Road. And cyclists will love the Corniche des Maures, a place of magic where the Massif des Maures winds down towards the crystal-clear water of the Mediterranean Sea.
