Cote d'Azur - Provence Vacation Rentals
A Provence France vacation rental is the ideal accommodation for a gourmet tour of Provence. Provencal dishes combine the produce of the sea and hills, mixing fresh seafood with olive oil, tomatoes and garlic from the countryside. After days of sampling Provencal cuisine you may be inspired to take a cooking class. You won’t be able to make a mouth-watering bouillabaisse in a hotel room, though, so your best bet is a villa rental or holiday home in Provence.
Food is not the only attraction you can enjoy when staying at Provence vacation rental houses. Because of its mild climate, you can spend your days golfing, cycling and sailing nearly year-round. Pampelonne Beach in St Tropez is a popular spot for sun tanning.
Museums with classic paintings and sculptures can be found throughout Provence. Of special note is Cezanne’s studio in Aix-en-Provence. Noteworthy historical attractions worth a visit include the Pope’s Palace in Avignon, where the pope lived after the 14th century schism; the 5th-century Cathedrale Saint-Sauveur in Aix-en-Provence; and off the coast of Marseille, the Chateau d’If, which once held the Count of Monte Cristo. The 1st century Amphitheatre Les Arles is still in use as a venue for bullfighting which you can watch during your summer Provence vacation.
