For an unforgettable holiday in France, why not try the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, which combines the charm of Provence (with its thousand-year-old villages and olive groves), the fresh air of the Alps (just 2hr from the sea) and the heat of the Mediterranean (cooled by offshore breezes)? Along the coast, marvel at the calanques (inlets) around Marseille, or head for the heights in the Massif des Maures or the red rock formations of the Esterel mountains, all this without ever losing sight of the blue of the Mediterranean. Provençal and Italian cuisine combine with fish and seafood and local wines to ensure that every meal is a feast for the senses. Dreaming of renting a house by the sea? A villa with a swimming pool on the Côte d’Azur-French Riviera? Or would you prefer an apartment overlooking a port so that you can watch the coming and going of boats every day? POPLIDAYS has compiled a selection of the very best holiday rentals in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region for you.
