Stretching from the port of Bormes through the Gaou and Cap Bénat to the cove of Cabasson, one of the most beautiful sites of the Var, protected and devoid of any construction since 1960. It is at the tip of this small hamlet that the Fort of Brégançon is located.
This prestigious site rubs shoulders with the most beautiful landscapes (pine forests and vineyards as far as the eye can see) and the most beautiful beaches of the region: Brégançon, Cabasson l'Estagnol and Pellegrin, the secret beaches with a Seychelles look (white sand and crystal clear waters).
Large stretches of white sand or wild creeks drowned in the vegetation, sandy beaches or wild creeks, everyone can find their own spot depending on the time of day and the wind.
