ABOUT STE ANASTASIE SUR ISSOLE IN VAR, PROVENCE-ALPES-COTE D'AZUR
Quite frequently extravaganzas happen, such as fetes, evening music, pageants and special occasion open feasts; keep an eye out as they are well worth going to if you can. Travelling a little further, there are many historic buildings - Chateaux and Abbeys - which make a memorable visit. And further still there is the grandeur of the Luberon Valley, the Gorge Du Verdon (Grand Canyon) and the High Var/ Provence; all worth sampling on a day trip.
SURROUNDING WIDER AREA
The coast is about 45 minutes away, there are sandy beaches tucked away beyond large areas of woodlands and vineyards. Much of the coast is protected, typified by 40km of Sentier Litoral (green routes); so it is quite different to most of the Cote D'Azur. St. Tropez, Cap Bregancon, Plage L'Estagnol and Isle D'Hyeres are just some notable venues.
Further inland you encounter the Masse des Maures with its mixture of low mountains, wooded hills, sleepy villages and large vineyards. A walkers paradise, there are trails of every length imaginable offering superb views. This area actually starts near the villa with the peak St. Quinis and stretches right down to Grimaud near St. Tropez. The historic county town of Brignoles, home of the Counts of Provence, is 15 minutes away and offers a greater variety shopping outlets together with restaurants, cafes and bars plus a superb Saturday morning market.
The Var is about the driest area in France, the S.E. gets the hottest weather as well. Expect very little rain from May to September and even though it can break maybe by mid September, it usually comes back warm and dry into October. Evening temperatures, even in July / August are not too oppressive as the Villa is at about 1000 feet above sea level, mosquitos are usually not a problem either. Winters are sunny with some rain, cold after sun down, no snow locally but there is plenty an hour away to the north in the Southern Alpes.
Local activities include golf, horseriding, wine tasting at local domains, hiking or gentler walks along easily accessible routes across the foothills of the Maures. There is a tree adventure park and kid's bike park nearby.
Ski stations and ski villages are within 2 hours both in the High Provence and Alpe Maritime.
