What are the important criteria to consider when looking for a holiday accommodation in Provence ?
Before you start your search, the best is to prepare a list of the criteria that are important to you. Do you want to stay near the sea, or would you prefer to be in the countryside or in a historic village ? Do you need public transport, certain amenities such as shops or restaurants close by? In each advertisement of the houses that we offer for rent, the distances are precisely indicated.
Set a budget for your holiday home and try to stick to it as far as possible. Prices for holiday homes in Provence
can vary greatly depending on the season and location. Also consider other expenses such as cleaning costs, tourist tax and any additional costs. Our tenancy agreements are issued precisely so that there are no more surprises when you book online.
What is the best time of year to rent a villa in Provence ?
Provence is beautiful all year round, but certain seasons offer different advantages. Summer is ideal if you want to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the many festivities around and the local festivals, but the occurence of tourists is very important and the most famous places are crowded. If fortunately you can spend your holiday outside the high season, spring and autumn turn on more peaceful, the climate is mild and the light is very beautiful. Winter is much quieter, but it can get cold on some days when the mistral blows and some spots may be closed during this time. The winter season is definitely most pleasant on the French Riviera
between Menton and Cannes.
What is the best area to choose a holiday accommodation in Provence ?
Provence is made up of different regions, each with its own special charm. The hinterland of Provence consists of mountainous landscapes and picturesque hill top villages. The Mediterranean coast
offers beaches and lively seaside resorts. If you are rather looking for an urban atmosphere, places like Aix-en-Provence, Avignon, Marseille, Arles Nîmes in the Languedoc, with historic sites and a dynamic cultural life, might be an option. Choose a department that suits your interests and the experiences you would like to gather. Whether it's the Var
, the most touristy department in France, the Vaucluse
with its incomparable charm, or the Bouches-du-Rhône
with its diversity between the Sainte-Victoire mountain, the Calanques of Marseille, the massif of the Alpilles or the Camargue, you'll be spoilt for choice. Less crowded are the departments Gard
and the Ardèche
, as well as the Drôme provençale
, but all are worth taking more than a side trip there. If you wish, we at Provence Villas Sélection
are at your disposal to help you make your choice.
