Toulon apartments & villa Toulon - Côte d'Azur holidays
Toulon is a city at the Côte d'Azur in the southern part of France. The name came into existence from a Ligurian goddess named Telona. Toulon is a popular tourist city in France because it has an abundance of hills and historical sites all waiting to be discovered. In the past a hill named Faron was used by locals to view arriving boats, especially those they suspected of belonging to enemies. Today the hill has a military camp at its top and an information centre, all making for a major tourist spot. If you are a lover of history you are in for a treat in this great city. Just secure yourself an apartment or villa in Toulon and begin planning some excursions.
Holiday in a Wonderful Toulon Apartment
The first place that should be at the top of your tour list is the harbour and its promenade. Here you can enjoy a trip across the calm waters of the Adriatic on a wooden boat, enjoy a latte at the nearby coffee shop or get stuck into a delicious fresh fish platter at one of the local restaurants. If all that is not enough, be sure to appreciate the view of Statue of the Spirit pointing directly towards the sea from the port square. You may hear people rather cheekily calling it the Cul Vers Ville, a name it was given because of its bottom faces towards the city. Located right at wonderful shore of Southern France, Toulon cannot be the only amazing city in this region. Located quite centrally, Toulon is a great starting point to visit Marseille, Aix-en-Provence and Cannes. However, to visit all these cities you should definitely book a longer holiday to find some time to relax as well. After all that fun and excitement, head on down to your Toulon apartment and enjoy a great night’s sleep in preparation for another sunny day chock-full of great activities. Alternatively, Antibes, St. Tropez and of course Nice are just under 2 hours away, making them reachable for day trips or as another part of your holiday on the Southern France coastline.
Enjoy the Scenery of Southern France
If you think that the only place you will lie down comfortably and forget about all of your worries is your holiday apartment or villa, then you are in for a surprise. On top of the Faron Mountain, you will find a small park and with only bird-song to accompany you, the peaceful view of the city and its surroundings is really quite spectacular. If you're more of an action fan, don't dismiss the Faron Mountain Park, as travelling to the summit is an adventure in itself! Whether you navigate the winding mountain roads by car, take a cable car trip up or even attempt to tackle the mountain on foot, you're sure of a memorable journey that will make that peace and quiet up at the top even more worthwhile. If you want to explore more of the surrounding regions, you can go to nearby Provence or take a ferry to Corsica.
