I first went to Cotignac around 20 years ago, to stay with friends in a ramshackle apartment in the village square. I loved it then and have been back many times. The area know as the Var, around Cotigac and Correns has everything: beautiful landscape, and a landscape that produces some excellent Rose. A relaxed, agricultural feel to it, yet still dotted with architectural wonders; I'm thinking of the beautiful Abbey de Thoronet and the little villages like Cotignac itself. And on top of all this world class hiking, cycling, canoeing and climbing (for the active amongst us). Perfection.
