Make a holiday rental home or apartment in Tarascon, France your home away from home

Sometimes referred to as Tarascon du Rhone, Tarascon is situated 23km south of Avignon, on the east bank of the Rhone River in the Bouches-du-Rhone region of Provence, France. The name Tarascon comes from that of a mythological monster that was said to live here, and the legend remains strong with a museum and local festival dedicated to the man-eating creature. Self-catering accommodation in Tarascon is easily accessible and provides a rural base from which to explore the region.

Things to do in Tarascon, France

A mythological monster known as the Taratin (or Tarasque) was said to have lived in Tarascon at the beginning of the 1st Century, and a series of novels were written about it in the late 1800’s. The result of this is a museum in the town that is dedicated to the Taratin, and a festival held in its honour every June, making this time of the year a particularly interesting one in which to visit. Another museum of particular interest is the Souleiado, which exhibits the Provencal fabric still made in the area and exported all over the world.

There are several sites of historical interest within the town centre. These include the 12th Century Collegiate Church of St. Martha, the 15th Century Medieval Castle and the 17th Century Town Hall (which has a Taratin sculpture on its roof). Touring these buildings, along with the several others within the town centre can easily fill two days for any visitor and allow them to get a true feel for this historical town.

Beaucaire is located on the opposite side of the Rhone River from Tarascon, and as a result the two are often classed as a single town. Beaucaire is the home of more historical buildings, the ruins of a 13th Century castle, and a popular July festival, which incorporates a procession, various concerts and several bullfights.

Places to visit on holiday in Tarascon, France

As well as crossing the river and heading into Beaucaire, visitors to Tarascon have many options if they decide to explore the surrounding area. As well as the many towns and villages that line the banks of the Rhone, a visit to Avignon is a must. The city is one of great historical and archaeological interest, but also has good shopping and dining and offers a good night out.

Weather in Tarascon, France

The climate of Tarascon is similar to that of many European towns and cities, with warm summers and cooler winters. Though rainfall could not be described as heavy at any time of the year, it is recommended that visitors take suitable clothing to cater for all eventualities.

Flights to Tarascon, France

Avignon Airport is 22km from Tarascon, and receives regular flights from Exeter and Southampton (Flybe), and Edinburgh and Leeds Bradford (Jet2). Some of these are seasonal flights, and those travelling in winter could use Nimes Airport as an alternative, as it is a similar distance from Tarascon.

Patrick, Andreline and Marina were the perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. The house, gardens and pool were immaculate, very clean, and tastefully furnished, with a very comfortable bed. (twin beds together). The kitchen has everything one could want including dishwasher!.Nearby Fontvieille, about 15 minute walk away, is a lovely little village and conveniently situated for Arles, Avignon, Luberon and the Carmargue. Perfect holiday!! Would recommend to anyone who loves being in a quiet, peaceful area.

Very well appointed and typically rustic French atmosphere. All you could need on hand and a few minutes to Tarascon for the bread wine and superb fresh vegetables. The house was very clean, calm and has great early morning views as the sun rises. There is an abundance of nature on the doorstep and great for watching birds in the woods and trees nearby.

The house was in a perfect location to go off exploring (in easy reach of Arles, Avignon, Nimes, Pont Du Gard, Camargue etc) or to sit by the pool and enjoy the garden. Our boys loved having swings and a play house in the garden, as well as room to play football and run around. Sandrine and Jean-luc were impeccable hosts, and for families or couples this is a great place to stay. We hope to go back very soon
