South of France Holidays

Discover the best of South of France holidays with your own South of France villa!



South of FranceWhen most people think of holidays in the South of France, they see glorious sand beaches stretching into the distance, covered with bronzed bodies and surrounded by the lush greens of pine covered mountains and the gentle turquoise of the Mediterranean Sea. Whilst this is highly accurate for the Cote d'Azur, South of France holidays can take an extraordinary number of forms, from beaches to mountains, activity to art, and sunbathing to skiing.

Tourism in the South of France is widespread, and although there is no defined region falling under the heading, South of France tourist guides usually agree that it is the regions of Provence, the French Riviera, Languedoc-Roussillon, Aquitaine and the Midi-Pyrenees that are considered to be 'the South of France'. Those looking for a week or two of unsurpassed luxury, endless days stretched out on the golden sand in an atmosphere of pure elegance and chic, will find a self catering South of France villa for rent in Provence or in the French Riviera perfect. But for a more laidback, rural beach holiday, a South of France villa in Languedoc-Roussillon cannot be beaten.
