Chocks Away

Finding La Toscane is relatively easy but please keep in mind the narrow Provencal roads and don’t hesitate to Honk the Hooter.

Assuming you are driving via the A8 Autoroute, take the exit marked 35 "BRIGNOLES" and at the first very large roundabout, take the last exit towards "Carces" and "Le Val." At the next large roundabout, take the last exit, continuing to follow the signs to Carces D554. Continue on this road towards "COTIGNAC" and "MONTFORT SUR ARGENS" D22.

At the crossroads before Montfort, you will see the sign to "CORRENS" D45. Turn left here and continue for about 4 kms.

After entering the village, turn right at the T junction, drive over the small bridge crossing the River Argens and immediately after the War Memorial Monument, take the small, narrow road marked "Chemin de St. Jean." Continue on this road for about 1 mile. The road winds and climbs and don't hesitate to Honk the Horn as the road is narrow. La Toscane is located on the right hand side just after the signpost marked "L'Allegrier." It is marked on a large stone and has a long driveway leading to the house. Welcome!
