Eat, drink, and love in beautiful Provence

If you're booking a Provence vacaction rental, congrats! You've chosen one of Europe's most beautiful and popular destinations. This is where you can lose yourself in a landscape of fragrant lavendar fields, olive groves, and lush vineyards. Or relax on golden sands while you gaze at the seas of the Cote d'Azur, as known as the French Riviera. France's second-largest city, Marseille, is in Provence, and it's full of historical buildings and French culture. There's also elegant Nice, glamorous Cannes and charming Avignon. And if you're elevation-inclined, the southern Alps straddle Provence and the Italian border.

Things to do

Something for the city mouse and the country mouse

Are you a city mouse? Bustling Marseilles is where you'll find cultural attractions like the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations, and Notre-Dame de la Garde basilica. If you fancy a visit to the famous French Riviera, try the resort towns of Saint-Tropez or Cannes. There's also elegant Nice, where you can see Musee Matisse and do some seaside shopping on the Promenade des Anglais. Hike around the Verdon Gorge and admire the turquoise river that cuts through the steep cliffs. And you'll have a divine time at Palais des Papes, the Palace of the Popes, in Avignon.

Activities

Ma cherie, the sights you'll see are tres jolie

Grab a guidebook and get ready to do some serious sightseeing throughout Provence's famous countryside. Many famous artists created works here, including Picasso, Matisse, Monet, and Van Gogh. You can see their art at various museums or wander the region to see the landscapes that inspired them. Provence weather is ideal for grape-growing, so naturally, there are many local wines to enjoy with a hearty Provencal stew or rich seafood bouillabase. And drop some Euros at the local Provencal markets, which you'll probably find near your Provence vacational rental.

Weather

You might get an occasional wind of the Mistral

Most of Provence is a warm Mediterranean climate where you'll enjoy blue skies and dry, sunny days. Colder areas are around the Alps, where it snows. Further inland and around the coast, the big weather variation comes from the Mistral, a strong year-round wind that can gust up to 50 miles an hour. It creates chilly weather, especially in the winter, so pack that jacket. You might see some rain in September through November, but snow, not so much. July and August are the hottest months, with highs in the 80s, while December and January lows hover in the 30s.

Natural features

From east to west, you'll find your dream landscape

Provence vacation rentals cover some diverse ground. To the west is the Rhone River, a major highway of commerce for France and the Mediterranean for centuries. To the east there's the Italian border and the southern Alps, and then to the south is the Mediterranean Sea and the Camargue, western Europe's largest river delta with lagoons, sandbars, and marshes. The striking blue Verdon River cuts through the limestone canyons, creating the popular Verdon Gorge. In the limestone hills of this area, you'll find lots of vegetation known as the Garrigue, fragrant plants and trees like juniper, thyme, sage, and rosemary.
