The superb country setting of these houses meant they were rapidly bought up by a new generation of owners, who had the means to invest in restoring these wonderful properties. The same applied to wine domains, which has helped promote the quality of rose wines of the Var, to an extent that they are now exported to top restaurants in Tokyo, New York and Shanghai, like Domain Ott’s Rose.
There are also luxurious modern properties with superb views and amazing interior design. In the selection we show there are stunning properties in St Tropez. Another villa has more garage space than bedrooms. Large bay windows makes you feel you are living outdoors all the year round.
The good news is that smaller more affordable houses under 1 million Euros can be found with some of the key qualities of larger houses. So if you want a sea view, a house bathed in Provencal sunlight, or gardens with tall Pin Parasols, there are many houses available on the market now. But with the renewed interest in the housing market fueled by low interest rates and the falling euro, the best quality mid-market properties will be the first to go. If you are serious about moving to the Var, don’t wait for too long before making your decision.
