South East France Holiday Rentals

In SE France you are assured of good weather for most of the year, which makes outdoor activities particularly pleasant. Just as well that this region contains four of the 6 great national parks of France, Les Ecrins, (Provence-Alps), Le Mercantour and La Vanoise, Port-Cros, (Provence). Provence also has the Camargue with flamingos and herds of wild horses.

The Rhone Alps region has the biggest freshwater lake in France, the Lac du Bourget. This area, bordering on Switzerland and Italy, contains the massive range that is the Alps, where there are some of the best ski stations in Europe, and the holiday villages available for skiers in winter are equally available for mountain walkers and climbers in summer.

If buildings are your passion the lovely Auvergne has many Romanesque churches to visit, or there is the Palace of Popes at Avignon, justly renowned. With such an outdoor culture it is not surprising that all the restaurants offer tables outside for lunch and dinner, and it is possible to sit until after darkness, sipping the local Rhone wines, and listening to the haunting murmur of the cicadas in the plane trees, surely the most evocative of sounds from the Midi. Long days on the beach are a feature of the Mediterranean coast, the sparkling blue sea and the long sandy beaches of the famous Riviera resorts such as Nice and St Tropez, and the less known but even more exquisite hidden seashore elsewhere.

One example is the Calanques of Cassis, east of Marseilles, these spectacular creeks with limpid, clear azure water and the rugged shoreline are unforgettable. Corsica also has its own Calanques, amongst many other island charms. As with all of France holiday lets are numerous and can range from simple inexpensive accommodation to luxury self-catering villas with their own pool and domestic help from the local village.

The season for holiday letting is long, with a probability of sunshine any time between January and December -with 300 days of sunshine per year you'd be very unlucky to get bad weather on your holiday!
