Destination guide

Forget Paris! Southern France will make you dance

France loves to change the names and borders of its regions, so for now, Southern France encompasses 5 regions, and as you might imagine, they're all magnificent. For an elevated experience, looks for spots in the Alps or the Pyrenees. Or find a Southern France vacation rental on the captivating coasts of Corsica, the shimmering shoreline of Cote d'Azur, or the quaint and beautiful Occitanie countryside. You have beaucoup de places to choose from, n'est-ce pas? Flip a coin if you can't decide, because you'll be happy with any or all of them!

Things to do

Get your fill of fortresses and castles in Southern France

The most visited area of Southern France is the Cote d'Azur a.k.a. the French Riviera, which is home to the chic cities of Cannes and Nice, plus the millionaire's hotspot of Monaco. Provence is also part of this region, where you can see Avignon's famous Palais de Papes (Palace of the Popes), and the stunning canyons of Verdon Gorge. Get yourself on island time when you visit Corsica's captivating coasts. Occitanie houses countless castles, including the medieval fortified town of Carcassonne. Aquitanie is where you'll find the famed wine-making city of Bordeaux and bustling Toulouse. Auvergne-Rhones-Alpes has, as you may surmise the high Alps.


Say ooh la la to the great outdoors of Southern France

With 2 major bodies of water and 2 iconic mountain ranges, spend some more time outdoors (said every parent ever). But really, it's true. In the Alps and the Pyrenees mountains, you can ski, climb, hike, bike, explore, and more. The glitzy Mediterranean coast has miles of beaches, glamorous nightclubs, acclaimed restaurants, and lively casinos. Inland, you can traverse the vineyards, lavender fields, and quaint villages nestled about the fertile landscape. Last but definitely not least, a Southern France vacation rental will place you close to some of the most stunning historical sites in the world. C'est incroyable!


Southern France's climate is all over the map

Depending on where your Southern France vacaction rental is, you'll either soak in the sun, play in the snow, brace yourself for the wind or open your umbrella. The areas along the Mediterranean Coast have mild winters, hot summers and little rain. If you're near the Pyrenees or Alps, dress for cooler temps and snow at higher elevations. Throughout the Rhone Valley, you'll occasionally get a visit from the Mistral, a fierce, strong wind that blows all the clouds out of Provence. And moving westward, towards the Atlantic Ocean, you'll get hot summers and mild winters with year-round rain.

Natural features

Snowy mountains, sandy coasts—what can't you see here?

The geography of Southern France is like the climate: lots of variety. Europe's highest point is Mont Blanc in the Alps, and the Pyrenees is a vast mountain range spanning the Spanish and French border. The protected area and National Park of the Camargue is a huge and ecologically important river delta, with lagoons, tidal marshes, and sandbars where nesting and migrating birds like to hang out. The coastlines vary from cliffs to wide, sandy beaches. And then you have the pastoral hills and valleys of wine country. C'est parfait.
