Subject: South Of France.
There is an area called Haute Var. That is about half way between the Riviera and Aix area of Provence. We stayed in Cotinac (sp) a great little village with outstanding food and people as well as natural beauty like waterfalls. The surrounding countryside is relatively quiet with regards to tourism. There are several small towns all within a 1/2 hour of each other. Lot's of country lanes with occasional farmers selling a few tomatoes or squash or fruit, all rustic and nice.
