You want to get away from Hyères and Toulon for the night? Go to the hinterland of Var. It is there, in the village of Solliès-Toucas, that this family hotel The Originals City, Les Bastides du Gapeau awaits you. At the helm of this 40-room hotel residence is Michel Cano and his team, who will do everything possible to make your stay unforgettable. A seminar room, a restaurant, private parking and a friendly atmosphere are some of the other assets of the place.
"Here, you have good weather for everything. Good weather for everything."
Michel Cano is an atypical hotelier. He came to the hotel business somewhat by chance, "an investment opportunity" as he puts it, but above all the opportunity to embark on a new professional challenge for this man who, during his long career, has been a soldier in the French Navy, a bookstore, a stationery shop and a restaurant owner. This is how The Originals City, Les Bastides du Gapeau came into being in 2015, a few meters from his restaurant, La Bastide Enchantée. Bordered by the Gapeau River and located a little outside the Var village of Solliès-Toucas, this 40-room hotel residence seduces by its calm, its services that suit families as well as professionals (evening stopover, seminar room) but also by... its atmosphere. The program includes "dance evenings every Friday and Saturday night," says Michel.
The Originals City, Les Bastides du Gapeau has 40 rooms. Of "standard" or "superior" categories, they are all perfectly furnished, with a nice surface area and offer a decoration in the air of time between sobriety of lines and colors. Without forgetting their major assets: comfort and calm. And those who are afraid of suffering from the heat of the Var region can rest assured that all the rooms are air-conditioned.
From 7am, a hearty breakfast awaits you at The Originals City, Les Bastides du Gapeau. On the buffet, breads, fruits, jams, butter, pastries and cereals. To be eaten in the dining room or on the terrace on the banks of the Gapeau. At lunchtime and/or in the evening, it will only take you a few minutes to reach the restaurant of the establishment which gives pride of place to traditional regional cuisine. Warm and friendly atmosphere at the bar where cocktails (to be consumed with moderation) are prepared with a master's hand.
In this beautiful bastide, the flavors of Provence enchant the taste buds and the gourmet plates reflect a beautiful (and good) know-how. On the menu: seasonal dishes and regional products. The speciality: casserons (small cuttlefish) à la marseillaise. Restaurant open for lunch and dinner.
The Originals City, Les Bastides du Gapeau invites you to savor the peace and quiet of the hinterland with its authentic perched villages and hills dotted with olive groves and forests.
Stretching between the peninsulas of Giens and Saint-Mandrier, the bay sometimes described as the most beautiful in Europe deserves to be admired. From the land, by climbing the Mont-Faron for a general view of the city and its coastline or from the sea, by embarking for a beautiful guided tour.
Would you like to discover a treasure? Head for the bay of Hyères and its golden islands, true jewels of the Var coastline. Loaded with history, Porquerolles, Port-Cros and Ile du Levant are also places for excursions and very pleasant hikes, guardians of a preserved nature and a certain art of living.
