There is no shortage of possibilities for wonderful outings from Villa Cantarella within a distance of somewhere between a half hour to an hour and a half’s car drive.

You may want to check out the “genuine” Provence such as the market in Aups, the cafés in Draguignan, the flea market in Tour-Tour, as well as the village square in Bargemon.

There is also the more fashionable Côte d’Azur with famous and infamous places to experience such as the croisette in Cannes, the port of Saint Tropez, the promenade in Nice, the bay of Villefranche-sur-Mer.

And then you have the sights well worth visiting such as the abbey of Le Thoronet, the Cours Mirabeau in Aix-en-Provence, the perfume factories of Grasse, the abundant vineyards and wineries – not to mention the fabulous Gorges du Verdon, the Grand Canyon of Provence.
