From St-Raphaël to St-Tropez and Ste-Maxime, the department of Var in Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur is home to some of France's most iconic seaside resorts. Var is also known for its harbour in Toulon, which is the main base of the French Navy. While it boasts some 420km of coastline, including the offshore islands, some 56% of the department is forest and it is also largely mountainous as a result of its location at the foothills of the Alps.
