Aups En Provence
The friendly small market town of Aups, with its winding narrow streets, retains a medieval village atmosphere whilst providing essential services to the area. There’s a bank, pharmacy, doctor's surgery, supermarket, boulangeries, excellent boucherie and a good selection of restaurants. There’s also a twice weekly market in the town square (Wednesday and Saturday mornings).
During the summer months activity centres around the cafe tables and boules playing of the shaded town square. At an altitude of 500m, the air remains fresh even on the hottest days and it’s an excellent area for walking and biking. It is the perfect bustling French town for your holiday home in Aups with all the amenities right on your doorstep.
Surrounded by terraced vineyards, olive groves and pine forests Aups is a 20mn drive to the wild and dramatic Gorges du Verdon - the deepest gorge in Europe - and the Lac de St Croix, for swimming or wind surfing in its brilliant turquoise blue waters.
The pretty neighbouring villages of Cotignac, Villecroze or Tourtour are delightful to visit and discover on foot and further afield there’s Aix-en-Provence, St Tropez or Cannes and the beaches of the Cote d'Azur are just over an hour’s drive.
Nice airport is a 90 minute drive and Marseille around 105 minutes. The nearest train station is Les Arcs/Draguignan, a 40 minute drive.
Our holiday house in Provence is the perfect base to explore this beautiful region.
