Villas in France

Villas in France

The South of France has the most famous stretch of coastline in the world. There is nowhere quite like it - though a great deal of money has been spent trying to copy it. The area 40 miles from the Gulf of St Tropez to Menton encompasses some of the most beautiful countryside in Europe, and the most expensive real estate in the world. The area slightly inland between the Alps and the sea is a beautiful suntrap with a nearly tropical climate, away from the crowds in August but within a short drive of the coast.

Outside July and August, luxury villas in the South of France are especially good value with much lower rents. When looking at holiday rentals in the South of France, do bear in mind there are advantages in being above the noise and crowd of the coast. We have luxury villas on the Cote d'Azur, around Cannes, Mougins , Antibes and Valbonne. In the hills, we have luxury rentals around Tourrettes sur Loup, Vence and St Paul de Vence. St Tropez is an hour further West in the Var. Availability of luxury villas in the South of France often follows the pattern of French holidays, with a large premium for July and August. This is slightly offset by the knowledge that, nowadays, many holiday rentals are available on a fortnightly basis, rather than a minimum of one month as used to be the case (even France changes - it just does it more slowly). It is now a legal requirement for all villas in France to have pool safety devices, but children should of course be supervised at all times.

Local beaches
Some of the best beaches in Europe (and some of the most famous) run right along the coastline from Italy past St Tropez. They range from the pebbly near Nice to the soft, with the beaches near St Tropez some of the most exclusive and beautiful in the world.

Restaurants
To describe the restaurant scene in the South of France as exciting is understatement, with more Michelin stars than anywhere else except Paris and superb ingredients and fish. Even at the inexpensive end of the scale the choice is enormous and tempting.
