Situated in the Massif des Maures hills, Plan de la Tour is a small village with an abundance of character. Walking through the streets and courtyards you feel like you have stepped back in time to a life that is free of the stresses and strains of the modern world.
From your Plan de la Tour property you have the ideal starting point for hiking in the surrounding pine and oak forests. Life in the village is very relaxed and traditional and Plan de la Tour has a real sense of community. If you need to get back into the 21st century the coast and opulence of the Gulf of St. Tropez are just a short drive away.
Plan de la Tour property is usually very well kept and the village homes are nicely painted in pastels and ocres. The village is very quiet and life meanders along at a relaxed pace. You won’t find a supermarket in Plan de la Tour so you will have to venture further out if you need to. You won’t have to worry about conveniences though as there are all the necessary shops, such as a butcher, baker and grocery shop. This is a pleasant change to most villages and towns nowadays and it is always good to support the local businesses if you are planning to buy a Plan de la Tour property.
Houses in the town centre are still traditional and authentic, but as you move out of the centre there are more modern properties starting to appear. Outside of the village you can find some really luxurious villas that enjoy the remarkable views over the surrounding hills.
There’s not a huge amount to do in the village, but there are some beautiful hiking trails and mountain biking routes to explore. You could also take part in a friendly game of petanque, which is a form of boules. There are a few restaurants and bars to keep you entertained in the evening, but for a more exciting nightlife you’ll need to travel to Sainte Maxime, which is only 9km away.
