Salernes Property Listings and Info

For buying and selling property in Salernes

A town to savour

The pretty Provençal town of Salernes, lying in the Bresque valley in the Var department of south-eastern France, is worth more than a fleeting visit. Take time to follow the attractively waymarked walking tour which meanders through the town, up its quaint streets as they climb the steps bordered with pretty stone and shuttered houses, up towards the castle at the top of the hill. Gaze out onto the thickly wooded slopes which lie below you, before wandering back down to the hub of the town. Sit a while in the long central square, sipping a cool drink and relaxing in the shade of the ancient plane trees. Savour, in short, life in a Provençal village which appears not to have changed much for centuries.

Twice weekly market

Shopping in Salernes is a highly enjoyable experience, whichever way you choose to buy your goods. Those who love the colour and atmosphere of French markets (and who doesn't?) will find themselves with a surfeit of great local produce to choose from in the two markets held in the village on Wednesdays and Sundays.

Salerne's facilities

The town is also blessed with some excellent small and typically French shops such as a boulangerie (bakers), a boucherie (butchers), a pharmacy, newspaper shop and more. There are doctors, dentists, banks, a library, a cinema and small schools all in the town, although for certain things, such as a hospital or schools and colleges for older children, you will need to go to Draguignan, a large town 23 kilometres away.

Fountains and sight seeing

There are many beautiful and ancient sights to discover in Salernes, and no visit to the town would be complete without an appreciation of the fine fountains which can be found dotted around. The Place de la Révolution has a lovely fountain with an octagonal basin and decorative statuettes, and elsewhere there is a double-spouted fountain dating back to the eighteenth century. Explore a little further and you may find a ruined mill towards the south of the village, an eleventh century church in the centre, and a delightful donkey-backed bridge at the town's northern edge. You may have to look a little harder, but there is also a Roman bridge just outside the town.

Swimming and other sports

There are plenty of sports available in and close to the town, should you feel the need to exercise! There is a lovely pool created from part of the River Bresque, and the town has tennis courts too for those of a competitive nature. Nearby there is golf, mini golf, horse-riding, cycling, fishing and hiking, as well as less common sports such as archery. Provençal weather is famously glorious, so outdoor sports are the order of the day for most of the year.

How to get there

As the town of Salernes is close to Nice, there is no difficulty in finding an airline or an airport to suit, as you can fly there with BA (from London, Birmingham and Manchester), easyJet (from London, Liverpool and Newcastle) and bmi (from Durham, London, Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester and Edinburgh). Bmibaby, Jet2, flybe, Air France and Aer Lingus also fly into Nice. Meanwhile Ryanair flies into Toulon, which is even nearer to Salernes than Nice. Rail travel offers a TGV to Les Arcs, or Saint Raphael, and if you are travelling by road you will find Salernes about an hour and half from Nice on the A8 autoroute.

Property prices and availability in and around Salernes

There's no getting away from it, property in the Var is not cheap. Provençal villages such as Salernes are highly sought after, and although prices are a little lower than on the coast itself, houses here do command a premium rate. Rental incomes will also be high, however, should you wish to let the property for part of the year, and property holds its value well.
