The Massif des Maures, the wildest of the Var countryside
Between Hyères and Fréjus stretches the 150,000 hectares which constitutes the Massif des Maures.
This mountainous massif, with its austere beauty, takes its name from the Provençal language, “Leï Mauro”, meaning Black Mountain. It owes this nickname both to its dark-coloured rocks and its dense forest of cork oaks, covering the vast majority of its territory.
As a protected wild area, it offers refuge to an entire Mediterranean ecosystem and, in particular, to the Hermann tortoise which you can only encounter in the wild here.
