The village of Callas

Callas is a village perched on the side of a hill, right in the centre of the Var region in the south of France. Its name comes from this situation: “kal”, rocks and “calade” stone steps.
Callas is composed of winding streets, white stone steps leading to small square in the middle of which we can find fountains.

On the main square, the café terrace is the place where tourists and locals meet in the shade of the big trees.


The local services: post office, medical and dental centres, hairdresser, bakery, petrol station, tourist office, restaurants.
