Hotels in Solliès-Toucas

Solliès-Toucas Details

On the green banks of the Gapeau river sits a typically Provençal village named Solliès-Toucas. The peaceful village, which is situated 10kms north of Toulon and about 30kms inland, has a long, historic past, evidenced by its ancient chapel, oratories and fountains, as well as by the Sarrasin Tower and St Christopher’s Church. Its old streets wind their way past fountains and squares shaded by century old plane trees. A haven for anyone who enjoys peace and relaxation, not to mention fishing, Solliès-Toucan offers discount hotels through in an undisturbed setting. The area offers exceptional walking and hiking amongst beautiful scenery.The peaceful atmosphere of the region is continued into the neighboring village of Belgentier, where the narrow streets are linked by vaulted passages and the doorways of the old houses are sculpted in stone. You can stop off at one of the village’s cafés or hotels for a bite to eat before continuing on to Cuers. This little village will charm the visitor with its winding streets lined with 16th and 17th century houses that lead up to the Notre Dame de Sante. Should all this peace and quiet get to be too much for you though, the OK Corral Amusement Park, located in a quarry at Cuges-les-Pins, offers many attractions for all ages. Also, the Ile de Porquerolles, one of three islands in the Hyères gulf, is well worth a visit. Its lighthouse, built in 1837, is said to have a range of 56kms, and its National Mediterranean Botanical Conservatory houses an important variety of fruit trees.
