Apartments in Provence

Wonderful landscapes for a varied holiday

French Provence has the right environment for every taste. For example, rent a chic apartment in one of the historic old towns or a vacation rental not far from the impressive mountains of the region. Apartments are also available for bathers on the shores of the Haute-Provence reservoirs or the beaches of the Côte-d'Azur.

A vacation rental to fall in love with

Typical for Provence are the stone houses covered with colourful flowers, which you will often find in the countryside in a secluded location. In such buildings you can also rent a apartment or an apartment. The fincas of Provence are particularly spacious and often have a park-like garden and their own pool.

Enjoy pure luxury in your holiday home

Many landlords in Provence make sure that their guests read every wish from their eyes. So you can often book breakfast with your accommodation or rent a boat, a bike or skis from the accommodation provider. If you would like a little more comfort in your vacation rental in addition to your own pool, you can also opt for a sauna or whirlpool. Parking in front of the front door is not a problem in many places.

Holidays in Provence

Location and orientation

Holidays in the South of France

Provence is a Mediterranean landscape situated between the Rhone Valley and Italy. To the north, the Dauphiné landscape borders Provence. In this holiday region, striking points are the Provencal foothills of the Alps, the Massif des Maures not far from the coast, the maritime Alps "Alpes Maritimes" and the Cottian Alps.

The cities and départements of Provence

The largest city in Provence is Marseille with around 855,000 inhabitants. Then follow Nizza, Toulon, Aix-en-Provence and Avignon. Also worth seeing are Arles, Gap, Orange, Carpentras and Menton. Provence consists of the Var and Bouches-du-Rhône départements, which are grouped together under the term Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur.

Discover landscapes

Provence is characterized above all by the mighty mountain range of the Luberon with the summit of the Mourre Négre. The "holy mountain of the Celts" Mont Ventoux is 1,912 meters high. A special feature of the region is the Verdon Gorge, which drops down to 700 metres. The Rhone Delta in the west is called Camargue, where the famous former wild horses also live. Azure blue shows the coast of the Côte d'Azur and purple the lavender fields in summer.

Travelers and Activities

Beautiful beaches and crystal clear sea

The Provence has on the French Riviera countless beautiful sandy beaches that invite you to swim, sail and sunbathe. One of the most beautiful beaches are Plage de Cap Taillat and Plage d'Estagnol. The beaches of Cassis, Cannes and Saint-Tropez are some of the finest and are therefore well equipped with water sports, sun loungers and showers.

Hiking tours with a lot of variety

The mediterranean climate of Provence tempts you to go on holiday for hiking all year round. Whether over wide lavender fields, through green valleys, to lakes and mountain streams or up to the mighty mountain peaks, the landscape is simply fantastic and even seduces to visit one or the other cultural-historical sights on the way. Provence is also suitable for climbing, mountain biking or extended trekking tours.

The perfect holiday resort for wine lovers

The regional quality wine can be found everywhere in Provence, in all its varieties. Try the fresh rosé of the Côtes de Provence or the fruity Ventoux wines. The Côtes du Luberon has light white wines to offer and heavy red wines are those from the Rhône region.

The truffle is also known as the "black diamond of Provence". The black Périgord truffle is harvested in the winter months around Mont Ventoux in the north of Provence.

1. To explore the markets of the region

Every village, however small, and even the big cities regularly organise the traditional markets, where you can experience the flair of Provence up close. There are many regional goods and foods, such as olive oil, herbs and spices, cheese, fruit and wine as well as pottery, Provencal fabrics and table linen. Markets usually take place in the morning.

2. The Roman theatre of Orange

Visit the city of Orange, which is well worth a visit, and make sure you visit the ancient theatre, which was built in the 1st century. At that time the theatre was an important social meeting place where poetry readings and pantomimes were held. In summer, the popular Chorégies d'Orange opera festival takes place every year at the Orange Theatre, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

3. Visit the impressive aqueduct

Pont du Gard, a Roman aqueduct, rises above the Gardon in an extremely imposing position. This ancient building, which once supplied the town of Nîmes with water, is located in the department of Gard not far from Vers-Pont-du-Gard. The bridge is one of the most important sights in the south of France.

4. Take a stroll through Avignon

The old town of Avignon is still surrounded by a 12th century wall. There are numerous medieval buildings and churches in the area of the historical city centre. Above all, however, this includes the Pope's Palace from the 14th century, in which many popes resided so far. The courtyard of honour was also awarded the European Heritage Label.

5. Enjoy your holiday

Good food is a tradition in Provence, which is why you can experience special culinary delights here. Among the typical dishes are the fish dishes Bourride and Bouillabaisse as well as the beef stew dish Daube provençale. The specialities of the region are the white nougat of Montélimar, truffles and candied fruits from Apt.
