It’s still possible to get together with the family this year for the end-of-year celebrations. We offer a warm and comfortable setting at the Résidence du Bailli in our 19 well-equipped apartments that can accommodate up to 8 people so you can have a gentle break with your nearest and dearest.
Our festive offer is here to help you enjoy this cosy atmosphere. For any break of a minimum 5 nights, we will offer you one bottle of champagne in your room together with a surprise gift for the children.
As the year comes to an end, the entire Var region bursts with excitement during the Christmas holidays with all their local traditions. Everyone gets busy making the cribs that re-enact Provençal life. The “santons” – nativity figures – that liven up the scenery (called “santun” in Provençal) are made of clay and are crafted by hand. You can discover them in numerous towns and villages where it will be fun to take a stroll at this time of festivals and Var traditions so you can enjoy the magic of Christmas.
And such is the case in the town of Toulon, which will light up with its giant Christmas tree, ice rink and wonderful entertainment along the quays and in the pedestrian districts in the recently-restored old town.
Don’t miss the pastoral: this is an authentic Var tradition dating back to the 15th century that is played out in the streets where it retraces the birth of Jesus, sometimes with a hint of humour reminiscent of operetta. Close to Rayol, pastorals are held in Cavalaire sur Mer, Hyères and Ramatuelle.
The Résidence du Bailli is the ideal spot for meeting up as a family: it’s situated just a few yards from the sea and is in harmony with nature – where everyone can enjoy the revitalising and soothing sea breeze.
Var festivals and traditions: like a taste of rediscovered freedom.
