Villa Cantarella is a comfortable pool villa beautifully situated in calm surroundings amidst olive groves and vineyards near the village Les Arcs sur Argens in the Var region. It is within an hour’s drive from Nice Airport and half an hour’s drive (depending on traffic) from the coast.
The Var region in eastern Provence is well located between the heart of Provence and the Côte d’Azur, a perfect home base for day trips to Aix-en-Provence as well as St. Tropez, Nice and Cannes. The nearest beach is in the coastal town of Sainte Maxime, less than 30 kilometres and a half hour’s drive away. It’s possible to go for a swim well into the month of October. The Var itself, a less touristy area, is abundant with scenic countryside, charming villages and towns and no lack of interesting sights to explore.
The villa is located 5 kilometres from the medieval village of Les Arcs. The medieval pedestrian quarter of Les Arcs is very charming with its narrow alleys, idyllic squares and numerous arches. A holiday in Les Arcs offers good possibilities for exploring the fascinating villages in the hinterland, so typical for Provence, and for trips along the Côte d’Azur.
