Come and enjoy the sun, the lavender fields and the cicadas in the south of France. Whether you are more into seaside resorts or small Mediterranean villages, you will have an exceptional stay in your holiday rental in Provence. It is indeed a region that is adorned with very varied landscapes and activities.
Between the Mediterranean coast and olive groves, the Camargue and the Southern Alps, Provence attracts many travellers every year who come to recharge their batteries near its lavender fields. If you want to spend a holiday in the sun and combine relaxation and discovery of the Mediterranean terroir, book your holiday rental in Provence now! Whether you want to enjoy its seaside resorts, meet its friendly inhabitants or go dancing on the Pont d'Avignon (like in the famous French children song), you will have sunny memories of your stay in the south of France. Discover Martigues, in the Bouches-du-Rhone, with its large Figuerolles park, its Verdon beach, its Ziem museum and its etang de Bolmon. Then go up along the Rhone river to arrive in Arles. Lovers of history and art will be delighted to visit its arena, Roman amphitheater and Saint-Trophime cathedral.
Not far from your holiday rental in Provence, the city of Aubignan is a charming, typically Provencal village, with white houses with blue shutters and small pedestrian streets. A few kilometers away, the city of Carpentras is home to the oldest French synagogue. You can visit the Inguimbertine library-museum, Saint-Siffrein cathedral, and take advantage of Friday morning to walk through the traditional market. Head to Avignon to admire the Rocher des Doms and discover the various museums that enrich the papal city: Angladon, Calvet, Petit Palais, Lapidaire, etc. Are you a fan of ancient ruins? Take a walk around the Amphitheater of Orange and Vaison-la-Romaine.
As for cuisine, you are just as spoiled with Provencal specialties: black or green olive tapenade, tomato and eggplant caviar to enjoy as an aperitif, Marseille bouillabaisse, aioli and Nicoise salad.
Soak up the sun, enjoy turquoise blue waters and tanning sessions while making the most of your holiday rental in Provence. The city of Cannes offers a beautiful view of the coast and is adorned with remains from the Middle Ages and very authentic small alleys. You can also visit the Castre museum and its square Tower. Nearby, the Golden Islands will transport you to picture-perfect landscapes. Go spend a day in Porquerolles or Port-Cros and discover their coves and white sandy beaches. You can also rent bicycles to go around it.
As for Nice, the largest city on this Mediterranean coast, it captivates travellers with its Promenade des Anglais, its castle and its Marc Chagall museum. Then discover the painting galleries of Vence, rightly nicknamed "the city of arts", the perfumeries of Grasse and the Antibes marina.
Water sports enthusiasts are not forgotten since Provence is the ideal place to introduce you to the pleasures of this type of activity. Try electric surfing in Frejus, try your hand at an underwater scooter in Saint-Raphael, go jet-skiing in Saint-Aygulf and keep balance on a giant paddle in Sainte-Maxime.
Looking for adrenaline? You will be able to try your hand at parasailing in Roquebrune-sur-Argens or get your boat license in Saint-Raphael, a stone's throw from your holiday rental in Provence.
But Provence remains just as spellbinding the further you go inland. Discover the lavender fields of the Sault plateau, the hilltop village of Tourrettes, the village of Bories and Senanque abbey near Gordes, or the famous Pope Palace in Avignon.
