Cogolin, ten km from St.-Tropez, on the N98 road between Hyères and St.-Maxime, is an old and friendly Provencal village. Also known for its pipe craftsmanship, this town's area extends from the mountain (Massif des Maures) to the sea (Marines de Cogolin), crossing vineyards, fields of lavender and botanical trails, thrilling you with a magnificent variety of hiking, food, sea and sports attractions, from sailing to mountain biking.
The Massif des Maures, a mountain range that is 60 km long and 30 km wide, covers about 135,000 hectares of rocks and wild forests, dense with pines, vineyards, cork plantations and centuries-old chestnut groves. On its paths surrounded by uncontaminated flora and fauna, which can be traveled on foot, bike or horseback, you can find ancient villages, sanctuaries and breathtaking views. There are also specialized guided tours available.
In this oasis of beauty and relaxation, you can also enjoy the artisan shops and popular traditions such as the Chestnut Festival and the Transhumance Festival.
Along the D98 road, a visit to the flourishing, idyllic medieval village, Bornes-Les Mimosas, is recommended. In winter, starting with these spectacular locations on the coast and the Massif des Maures, you can enjoy gorgeous hiking paths surrounded by the sea, eucalyptus, oleander and mimosa blossoms.
