VAR is it right for you?
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.
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.
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.
