Prop­erty prices

Var is the sec­ond most ex­pen­sive depart­ment in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur with an av­er­age re­sale price of €305,000 com­pared to the re­gional av­er­age of €290,000.

Weather

Var en­joys a Mediter­ranean cli­mate with long hot sum­mers, mild win­ters and more than 300 days of sun­shine a year. The Mis­tral winds af­fect this area of France but can pro­vide a welcome breeze in the sum­mer.

Ac­tiv­i­ties

With more than 400 kilo­me­tres of coast­line, in­clud­ing Saint-Tropez, Hyères and the Por­querolles is­lands, Var of­fers plenty for those long­ing for the Med. The cap­i­tal city of Toulon boasts a su­perb har­bour, which is the main base of the French Navy, and a num­ber of tra­di­tional Provençal food mar­kets. As well as sea­side re­sorts, Var is home to vast swathes of for­est and moun­tains due to its po­si­tion in the foothills of the Alps and can claim part of the iconic Gorges du Verdon.
