Discover the ruined castles of the Var, a real adventure for enthusiasts and children alike! Soak up the mysterious atmosphere and let your imagination wander among the remains steeped in history.
The remparts and remains of the château d’Hyères, built in the 11th century by the Lords of Fos, is a fortified site perched on a rocky promontory, offering breathtaking panoramic views over the Bay of Hyères.
At La Garde-Freinet, the medieval site of Fort Freinet and the remains of the castle walls take visitors back in time from the 12th to the 16th century. The path to reach the site is steep but the reward is at the end of the road: the view is sublime and the site is highly instructive on the building methods of that era.
Finally, the château de Pontevès, in Bargème, invites you to enjoy an immersive experience at the heart of its military history. Perched on a rocky promontory, it offers an uninterrupted view of the majestic surrounding mountains and seems to watch over this beautiful Village de Caractère in the Var.
