Our Review

Bustling cities and towns are in abundance throughout the South of France. A mixture of old and new, Nice is famed for its stunning bright blue waters, spectacular views from Castle Hill and the Musée d'Art Moderne et d'Art Contemporain, which holds a diverse collection of modern art from European and American artists, as well as pieces from the Nice art school.

The charming city of Avignon is full of history, art and music, it’s a hive of activity. With narrow streets to stroll and hidden houses to spot, lose yourselves amongst the lantern-lit old town or cross the bridge to medieval Villeneuve-les-Avignon and discover ancient fortresses and abbeys.

Carcassonne is France’s most famous medieval haven to explore. One of four UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the South of France, be impressed by the magnificent castle holding a wealth of history and the picturesque, preserved town rebuilt within the castle walls.

Head to the inland hills and mountains of Provence for skiing, snowboarding and other exhilarating activities. Provence presents beautiful mountain ranges mixing in with quaint French villages. Water sports such as white-water rafting and canoeing are popular pastimes for sports enthusiasts if the snow-based activities aren’t your bent.

For beach visits, the Languedoc region boasts the best, with many Blue Flag awarded shores. Perfect for those who like the added extras of beachside restaurants and bars, as well as those who relish more secluded spots, you’re sure to find an area of coastline to suit. The French Riviera, a coastal strip situated to the east of Marseille is a stretch of sun-filled terrain that has plenty of hot spots for sailing and coastal cruise tours.

Foodies visiting the South of France will be enchanted by the local cuisine. Strong Mediterranean flavours; pressed olive oil, freshly caught fish and a kaleidoscope of fruit and vegetables guarantees plenty of choice for a hearty appetite.
