Villas in Provence & Cote d'Azur

If you’re looking for idyllic scenery, historic towns and endless stretches of sun-drenched beaches then look no further - Provence has it all! Fringed by the Mediterranean to the south, the Alps to the east and the Rhône River to the west, Provence is enveloped by unspoilt natural beauty.  Villas in Provence that feature on the website offer you delightful accommodation throughout this spectacular region and they also allow you to explore at your own pace. 

Situated in the south east of France on the breathtaking coast of the Mediterranean, Provence comprises six diverse departments, each offering unique characteristics.  The coastal region of Provence is known as the Côte d’Azur or the French Riviera due to its cosmopolitan ambience and striking coastline.  The Alpes Maritimes, which borders Italy, is home to renowned coastal areas such as Nice, Antibes, Cannes and Menton.  Nice is a vibrant city with many Italian influences and it is divided into the Old Town and a much more contemporary New Town.  This is a great place to sample irresistible shops and restaurants when you enjoy your holiday at a villa in Provence.  The famous Promenade des Anglaise is an atmospheric hub of the city where people enjoy cycling or coastal walks which overlook incredible views of the Mediterranean Sea.  During your stay at a villa in Provence you can climb up the Château Hill, amble around the charming port or learn more about the history of Nice in one of the many fascinating museums.

For travellers wanting a more authentic and quiet holiday when they book a villa in Provence, a visit to Plan-de-la-Tour is highly recommended.  This sleepy village nestles among pretty hamlets of colourful houses and the lush countryside rises into Massif des Maures, where ripened olive trees and vineyards abound.  However, if you do crave a spot of socialising when you choose to book a villa in Provence, this secret oasis is not far from more lively towns with bustling boulevards.

The Alpes de Haute Provence extends from the Italian border to Vaucluse in the west and it has many hidden gems waiting to be discovered when you stay at villas in Provence.  Fantastic hideaways with serene lakes, Alpine valleys and leafy forests which are ideal for canoeing, hiking and cycling, are sprinkled throughout the region.  The quaint town of Barcelonnette, named after Barcelona, can be found in the Ubaye Valley and is a great starting place to explore the Parc National du Mercantour during your holiday at a villa in Provence.  For supreme vistas of the scenic countryside travel up one of the highest and most spectacular alpine roads in Europe, the Col de la Bonette, which runs from the Ubaye Valley to Nice.

Arles is a definite must-see when staying at a villa in Provence.  Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Roman monuments and fortifications offer an intriguing insight into the history of France.  Admire the Romanesque architecture and exquisite sculptures of the Cathédral of Saint-Trophime which can be found in the Place de la République.  As you wander over to the inspiring 17th century town hall, it almost feels like you have stepped back in time.
