April 13th, 2022 by admin Leave a reply »

Picking the right holiday cottage in France can be a daunting task, although choosing a villa in Provence is probably a good place to start, thanks to its Mediterranean climate, beautiful olive groves and laid back vibe.

It does not have to be an expensive break either, as sharing a French rental villa will often work out to be a good way to save, even for the most budget-conscious traveller.

Villas in Provence come with no hidden extras, and once you arrive at your destination you can sit back and enjoy the beautiful scenery the area has to offer.

Provence is home to stunning mountainous regions, which nestle in the Vaucluse area, and Mont Ventoux will appeal to adventurous types who enjoy the thrill of cycling on the Tour de France route.

Vaucluse is also home to the historic town of Avignon, which can easily be visited from your French holiday cottage.

History buffs will love exploring the Gothic Palace of the Popes, Notre Dame des Doms and the Pont d’Avignon.

If people watching and celebrity spotting is more your thing, then Cannes and St Tropez can be great places to visit from your French rental villa.

The countryside in Provence is stunning and areas such as St Remy De Provence are well worth a visit.
St Remy De Provence was the inspiration for much of Vincent Van Gough’s work and the area is said to have inspired him to produce more than 150 paintings.

Foodies will be at home in Provence and will no doubt love the cuisine which has been heavily influenced by the hot Mediterranean climate with its olives, garlic and bountiful seafood.

Michelin-starred restaurants abound, but if you prefer to cook yourself there are plenty of fabulous food markets where quality produce is available at cheap prices.

Marseille is worth a visit for many reasons, not least its food, and it is well known for producing the classic fish dish Bouillabaisse.

Wine lovers will cherish the opportunity to visit the Chateauneuf du Pape vineyards and villas in Provence provide the perfect backdrop to enjoy a glass or two of the local tipple.
