Local handicrafts in the Pays de Fayence

Art, terroir and gastronomy

The Pays de Fayence has attracted numerous artists and artisans. From Christian Dior to Fernand Léger, this part of Provence has not only welcomed artists but has inspired them, whether their speciality is wrought iron, glass-blowing, silk-screen printing, painting or bookbinding.

Just as it serves as inspiration for artists, Provence is also a veritable promised land for nature lovers and those who appreciate local produce. Many producers have chosen to settle in the fertile lands and lush nature of the Var countryside. Here you will find:

  • Honey producers
  • Oil mills
  • Vineyards belonging to large wine estates
  • Cheesemakers

During your family holiday in the Var, make a point of meeting these local producers and discovering the products of the terroir. To help you, a treasure map is available from tourist offices across the Pays de Fayence.
