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.

It was lovely and peaceful even though it is only three kilometres from Tarascon. Madame Gibert was a charming hostess and between us with my poor French and her poor English we communicated very well. The gite is quite spacious and is well equipped with with comfortable beds and a pleasant courtyard area to relax in. It is a working farm and Monsieur was busy around the farm during the day. There are dogs, horses and chickens around the farm and you can walk around the fields. It is well situated for visiting many places of interest in the area and extremely good value for money. We enjoyed our stay.

The gite is compact but the main living area is spacious, very well furnished and equipped. It is set in the grounds of a large house where the owners live so it has a very pleasant aspect across the pool to the gardens and is very peaceful. The weather was extremely hot when we were there but fortunately the air conditioning was very efficient and kept us cool at night.The owners were very welcoming and helpful and Pascal speaks good English - useful for visitors who don't speak much French. The gite is well placed for driving to Arles, Nimes, the Camargue and also the Alpilles (St Remy de Provence with it's connections with Van Gogh and Nostrodamus!) Also, further east to other beautiful villages of Provence for example, Gordes and Roussillon with its fantastic ochre rocks. In addition, the train station in Tarascon is very convenient for trains to Avignon - easier to go by train than trying to find parking in the city centre. There is a Lidl and bakers just down the road and other supermarkets in Tarascon and Beaucaire.
