Salernes is a very typical working French village with a twice-weekly morning market and several good restaurants, a boulangerie, patisserie, bank, and shopping. Nearby Draguignan, one of the larger Provencal towns, has all the amenities one could hope for including medical and dental facilities. Neighboring villages include Aups, Villecroze, Entrecasteaux (with its "fairy tale chateau" open to the public in the afternoons) and Lorgue, with numerous restaurants each with it's own speciality at very good prices. The village of Cotignac has a beautiful centre with pretty old shop-fronts. Fayence hosts popular antique fairs and the spectacular nearby Lac de Sainte Croix is a popular spot for boating and watersports. The Sunday Telegraph called it "one of the regions megastar attractions [with] primal forests and jade-coloured pools making it one of Europe's most stunning walks." Further along is Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, a medieval pilgrimage village long known as the Soul of Provence. One of the most breathtaking views in Provence can be enjoyed over lunch in the square in Tourtour the "village in the sky", minutes away. The Var region is truly one of the most unspoilt in all of Provence.
