The region of Provence is an area of diverse beauty. Situated between the Rhône-Alpes and the truly azure blue Mediterranean sea. France is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the World and the Provence Côte d'Azur region forms just an impressive part. There is such a wide variety of things to do in Provence. The region enjoys at least 300 days of sunshine every year, has more than 330 kilometres of coastline and beaches from Menton to Cassis and beyond, exceptional golf courses, innumerable restaurants from Michelin star to the local pizzeria in the village and is also within striking distance of the ski resorts of Alpes-de-Haut-Provence.
An incredible blend of scenery from the rugged cliffs at Menton on the Italian border to the wild sandy beaches of Hyères and the plains of the Camarague near Marseille and along to the cliffs that surround the stunning coastline near Cassis. Inland, how to describe is more a question of where to begin. Lavender fields, olive groves, fruit orchards and vineyards as far as the eye can see and round every corner. Lakes, streams and gorges scatter the landscape. Perched medieval villages, craggy mountains, Roman ruins, remains and history throughout the region. 18 villages in the Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur hold the accolade of being one of the "most beautiful villages in France". Many of our villa rentals are within striking distance of at least one of these lovely villages. How many will you be able to visit during your stay?
