South of France villas

Mark's verdict:

The South of France is wonderfully diverse, from the long sandy beaches of the Atlantic coast and mountains of the Pyrenées to the stylish resorts of the Côte d’Azur. Rent a villa with private pool and you’ll have the perfect base for any family holiday. We reckon Vintage Travel has the pick of the properties.

Vintage Travel says

We have been creating perfect family villa holidays in France for over 25 years.

  • characterful properties
  • private pools

South West France offers a diverse variety of landscapes, from the imposing peaks of the Pyrenées and beautiful beaches on the Atlantic coastline to bountiful fruit orchards and vineyards.

Provence is just as enticing, with its Mediterranean climate and easy access to the fabulous coastal resorts of the Côte d’Azur or, further north, the rugged mountains and dramatic Verdun Gorges.

Each of our self-catering properties has its own private pool, some of which are fenced for additional security.

For example, you could stay at Les Chênes, a beautiful 19th century farmhouse with enclosed gardens, vast lawns and an excellent base from which to explore the beautiful Aveyron region of South West France. The six bedrooms (four in La Grande Maison and two in La Petite Maison) will accommodate up to 12, making it ideal for two families travelling together.

A new addition to our Provence portfolio is Mas des Issarts, ideal for families with older children who want their own space. There are three bedrooms and four bathrooms in addition to a heated infinity pool, table tennis and table football.

All Vintage Travel houses offer the first cot and highchair free of charge. A generous welcome pack of provisions will be waiting for you on arrival and you have the freedom of arranging your own flights (or self-drive) or leaving all the travel arrangements to us.

At Vintage Travel, we offer a wide selection of handpicked properties for all party sizes up to 18. Click here for a full description of all our villas in South West France and Provence.
