Holiday villas in Southern France

From the pine-clad rises of the Alps to the shimmering beaches of the Cote d'Azur, the chic cities of Cannes and Nice to the rolling lavender fields of Provence, the Pyrenees to the winding Dordogne River and its chateaux-topped hills, the region of Southern France covers some of the most beautiful swathes of the Mediterranean. It's a Mecca for hikers and beach-lovers, history buffs and foodies, to name just a few, offering ancient Roman ruins next to gorgeous Gothic cathedrals, glowing pebble coves near soaring mountains. Southern France holiday lettings come in all shapes and sizes and locations, offering you loads of ways to experience this unique cut-out of Europe, whether from the poolside of a converted country barn or a stylish apartment just off the French Riviera.

Outdoor activities

Outdoor activities around Southern France holiday cottages

If you're not the sort to laze on sun-kissed beaches for your whole holiday, then Southern France villa rentals could also be a ticket to unbridled adventure. There's really no limit to what you can get up to, what with the rising Alps on one side, the Pyrenees on the other and the roaring waves of the Atlantic Ocean crashing onto the coast. In the Mediterranean, scuba diving and sailing are favourite pastimes. Bordeaux's wind-blasted shores are dotted with surf schools that'll help you ride the swells. And in the east, where the pine-dressed peaks of the Prealps and the rock-ribbed Mercantour National Park rise to the skies, there's room for hikes and ski breaks and mountain biking.


Find stunning beaches in Southern France

As Southern France spills into the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, it offers up some of the most handsome beachfronts in the country. Running from the Spanish border in the west to the rising Alps in the east, it's got loads of sands and coves and hidden coastal crevices to choose from:

  • Porquerolles is a real postcard picture-worthy spot – a carless island with pine-shrouded bays of turquoise-blue water
  • The Grande Plage of Saint-Jean-de-Luz is a stunner, where green hills tumble into a lapping Atlantic Ocean over handsome yellow sands
  • Umbrella-spotted La Paloma is quintessential French Riviera stuff, a pebbled beach backed by uber-chic Southern France holiday rentals on the stylish Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat
  • There are hidden coves just waiting to be explored by intrepid types in the carved Calanques National Park, east of Marseilles
  • Biarritz is fringed by long, sandy beaches, where you can wax down the board and hit the waves
Food & drink

The foods of Southern France

There's never a dull moment for the taste buds on a holiday to a Southern France villa rental. The unique flavour of Roquefort cheese mixes with griddled snails smothered in pungent garlic and wild herbs in the countryside, while the taverns of fishing villages all along the coasts – both the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, mind you – churn out piles of moules-frites and bubbling bouillabaisse. Then come the wines. Southern France covers some of the most iconic growing areas in the world. You can taste the unique clarets of Bordeaux, sip the zesty reds of Languedoc- Roussillon, or enjoy the sweet rose wines of the Cotes du Rhone over long al fresco lunches under the sun.

Romantic breaks to Southern France holiday cottages

There are plenty of reasons why this vast region is considered a hotspot for honeymooners. You could be tasting Occitan cuisine on a candlelit table looking out on the winding cobbled lanes of Carcassonne, strolling the pine groves of handsome Gassin village as you gaze across to Saint-Tropez, or cycling through swaying sunflower fields on the Iles d'Hyeres – they all promise to give the heartstrings a pull. Southern France holiday homes are the perfect pad to pick, too. Private, stylish and luxurious, they often come with pools and pretty views of rolling French countryside.
