Villas for rent in Provence
Holiday Villas in Provence
Provence, images of lavender fields and olive groves, old stone farmhouses and ancient villages, Provence made famous by Peter Maille's book 'A Year in Provence', exceeds its reputation. Covering a vast area of the South of France, with its diverse mountain and plateau landscapes, Provence can be divided into two distinct regions: Les Alpilles and the Luberon. Les Alpilles is characterized by quaint stone villages and large country estates with vineyards impregnated with pale rocky outcrops. The area is dominated by the grand university town of Aix-en-Provence and its smaller, but equally picturesque, sister Saint-Remy-de-Provence. Located East of Avignon is the Luberon, a spectacularly beautiful part of Provence with its national park of red mountains, lavender fields and historic villages each with a charm of its own. The village of Gordes with its impressive cathedral, the sheer red rocks of Roussillon, Goult with its famous windmill and many more make this a wonderful choice for a South of France holiday rental.
