When we buy a house held in 2008 in the Var, we landed by chance on this holiday. The convenient location (good to drive in one day from the Netherlands), the overwhelming nature and the mostly unspoiled villages had stolen our hearts. In addition, the villas to Dutch standards (solid) were built. The feeling of freedom on our terrace and magnificent views were decisive to purchase, something we still have not regret!
