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 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.
