Make a holiday rental gite or villa in Salon, France your home away from home

Deep in the Provence countryside between Aix-en-Provence and Marseille is the Salon region. Salon is a rural region of woodland carpeted hills and huge swathes of agricultural land. Salon is a fantastically peaceful region to relax, with fantastic wines produced on the sun soaked slopes that overlook Salon’s world class golf courses. If you would like to indulge in the finest aspects of life during your holiday, a Salon holiday rental is the perfect choice.

Salon’s location between the Alpilles and the Camargue makes it a perfect spot to take a holiday rental home if you would like to explore the countryside of Southern France. There are excellent routes to walk, ride horses and mountain bike, with route maps and mountain bike hire available from most towns and villages in the region. The peaks of the Luberon Mountains and Alpilles are both excellent destinations for mountaineering, climbing and walking, and well within reach of a self catering Salon villa.

Golf is hugely popular from Salon accommodation. There are some remarkable 18 hole golf courses in the region, including France’s most famous, interesting and testing courses, the Pont Royal Golf Course. If you would like to blow away the cobwebs before playing the Seve Ballesteros designed course of Pont Royal, there are driving ranges, practice greens and tutors available.

The famous Chateauneuf du Pape wine is the most celebrated wine produced in Salon, and you can always sample a bottle with your meal in any of the local restaurants.

PERFECT LOCATION FOR EXPLORING PROVENCE

5 of 5
The Mas is set in large grounds with loads of space so perfect for families, and those like us travelling with dogs. There are several sitting areas around the house so there is always a choice of sun or shade. The house is clean and well equipped. Michel and Jocelyne were excellent hosts and always responded immediately if we needed something or to give advice. Mallemort is well placed for exploring the beautiful villages in Provence as well as the coast. We enjoyed many glasses of champagne with Jocelyne and Michel who became friends by the end of our stay.

Amazing Character Home

5 of 5
What a complete miracle and blessing to find this home. An amazing find - this character home has so much history- it's unlike anything you will find to rent. We were traveling with our two adult kids and we all had our own rooms - so much space to spread out we'd get lost inside! This is NOT a tourist town - this is a regular town filled with local French people who were a bit amused to see the American tourists. Also a complete lifestyle change after being in Paris for a week. Church chimes! Swallows! Narrow, cobblestone streets! Yvette was wonderful to work with and we somehow managed to understand each other! I'd love to return for a longer and visit even more places around Provence. We rented a car and day-tripped to Nice, Arles, the wine country, Marseille, Gordes, L'Isle sue la Sorgue and Avignon. Would go back in a minute!
