Spend the holidays in the Var renting an apartment in the sun and enjoy the local traditions!

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.

The Route du Mimosa at the Residence du Bailli

The first botanical event of the year – the Mimosalia – is organised every year at the end of January in the old village of Bormes-les-Mimosas. It’s the place-to-be for garden lovers, bringing together the top French nursery owners and collectors.

The Route du Mimosa, which can be taken from January to March, boasts 130 km of magnificent landscapes, where the blue of the sky and the sea mingles with the green and yellow of the mimosa-clad hills.
Plant-themed activities are also on offer, including workshops for young and old alike at the Domaine du Rayol, together with exhibitions, hikes and tastings.

Eight towns and villages along the Route du Mimosa, which stretches from Bormes-les-Mimosas to Grasse, propose a trip to the land of the tiny yellow bud. Here you’ll find artisan chocolatiers and bakers, corsos and other traditional festivals, greenhouses, nursery owners, perfumers and so forth.

Are you familiar with the flower corsos, which are descended from Carnival?
They’re a relatively recent tradition, dating back to the end of the 19th century. On the Saturday the floats are decorated with thousands of flowers, and on the Sunday they are paraded through the streets of the village. The flower corso is now an integral part of the Var festive tradition with brass bands, folk groups and characters dressed up in costumes accompanying the parade.

Only two hours by road from the Résidence du Bailli, and still on the Route du Mimosa, you’ll find the Tanneron Massif, which is also covered with a thick yellow mantle. This is France’s largest mimosa region – with farmed and wild trees – extending over 200 ha. The most striking aspect is without doubt the explosion of fragrances that can’t be found anywhere else.

Make the most of our short or long-stay special offers so you can take off and discover the riches of the Var with complete peace of mind.

All Saints’ Day vacations by the sea in the Gulf of Saint Tropez.

Choosing your destination for the All Saints vacation is always quite complicated: should you head to the mountains, seaside or countryside?

Should you go for a hotel or rent an apartment? Take off with your sweetheart, family or friends? What to choose for organising a great All Saints vacation?

In this rather special period, it’s important to travel with complete peace of mind while enjoying a holiday by the sea in the Gulf of Saint Tropez.

Far from the hustle and bustle of summer, the Gulf of Saint Tropez is home to numerous Provencal villages that are worth visiting throughout the year, as well as seaside resorts, which remain open during the All Saints holidays, and where it’s fun to lounge around. During the All Saints vacation, the temperatures hover around 20°C, meaning the climate is ideal for taking a walk by the sea and admiring the landscapes. And for the brave of heart, why not think about going for a swim?! Staying in an apartment will give you a feeling of freedom: choose the apartment that suits you best, with terrace or balcony, sea view or garden view, and take advantage of our top special offers.

There are some nice surprises in store for you for the All Saints Day vacation by the sea, where you can get some fresh air, take in some culture and have fun with family or friends. Discover some superb landscapes on foot or by bike and explore the museums and events in the surrounding area: the National Maritime Museum, Saint Tropez Police Museum, the chocolate and cocoa museum in Roquebrune-sur-Argens or even the Festival de l’Air in Fréjus…

Spending the All Saints Day vacation by the sea in the Gulf of Saint Tropez is a sure way to make a success of your holidays!
