For buying and selling property in Figanières

Figanières - sooo Provençal!

The village of Figanières lies in the south-east of France, in the hills about half an hour inland from the Med, in the department of the Var. It is everything that you would hope to find in a Provençal hill village. The sun burns down onto the little houses in their sunshine colours of terracotta and creamy yellows, and the narrow streets wind their way through pretty squares to the church that dominates the village from its lofty position in the Place Saint Michel. The scenery around the village is spectacular too, with forests to the north and vineyards and olive groves to the south.

Figanières's fountains and flowers

Figanières keeps itself as pretty as it has always been, and although tourism is important to the economy it has not been allowed to spoil its essential character and tranquillity. There are numerous pretty squares, many decorated with cooling fountains sparkling in the sunshine, and one of these is said to be the fountain of youth! Figanières is always colourful too. There are colourful window boxes and hanging baskets bearing witness to the villagers' love of flowers. Visit the lovely walled gardens of the Jardin des Senteurs, which is not only beautiful and interesting but also aptly named as it is filled with aromatic plants that fill the air with their heady scents.

All needs catered for...

The village is only fairly small, yet it offers all basic requirements and has shops, cafés and restaurants. The bigger town of Draguignan is near enough should you find that you need access to more goods and services.

Sports on offer close to Figanières

The village lies beside the dramatic gorges of the Verdon, and these afford endless possibilities for sporting activities and adventures. The ski slopes of the southern Alps are only about an hour and a half from Figanières, and to cap it all, the Mediterranean beaches are little more than half an hour away by car. These offer all the swimming, sailing and sunbathing that you have ever dreamed of. Golfers have a choice of several good courses, and it is also possible to find pony trekking, cycle hire and tennis courts in the area. And with vineyards to the south of Figanières, wine tasting is another local "sport" you could perhaps indulge in here!
