Why rent a holiday villa in the South-West of France?

There are few images more idyllic than a family bike ride through the olive groves and rolling fields of lavender of the South of France. And while the South East of France, with the rustic farmhouses of the Provence, the sumptuous shoreline of the Cote d'Azur, and the Mediterranean jet-set glamour of the French Riviera rightly captures the imagination, there's even more to the South of France for us to discover if we take a look a little closer to the shores of the Atlantic...

From the famous vineyards of Bordeaux to the whispering pine forests of Cap Ferret, from the huge sweeping dunes of Arcachon to the verdant vistas of the French Basque Country, this often-overlooked region, scattered with gorgeous little villages and picture-perfect seafronts more than holds its own when compared to some of the better known locations for holidays in the south of France.

And what better way to enjoy this splendid region than in a luxury property? So, let's take a look at some of the options available when renting a stylish villa or rustic house during your perfect holiday in the south of France.


Rent a luxury French villa with a pool

Nothing says you're on holiday than waking up when you want, enjoying a lie-in and then making your way downstairs to sip a coffee and enjoy a croissant next to your own outdoor swimming pool. Enjoy leisurely mornings and lazy afternoons breathing in the crisp air and enjoying the splendid greenery from the luxury of your own swimming pool. Whether it’s a refreshing early morning dip to get the day going or making a splash with your friends with some poolside drinks, a luxury property with a swimming pool is an absolute must.


Southern France: the perfect wedding location

A rustic farmhouse near the vineyards of Bordeaux, an elegant 17th house with breathtaking views over the bay, or a majestic chateau surrounded by luxuriant greenery, Villanovo's selection in the South West of France has plenty of spectacular villas which can cater for your special day. These locations are perfect for large groups, with some even sleeping as many as 28 people,

So, if you're looking for the perfect destination wedding, then the South West of France might be the ideal location for you.


Luxury villas for large groups

Not every holiday is a romantic getaway for two or a cosy week with the family. Sometimes we want to make a real occasion of it and bring a group of friends, or even go with another family. For that many people you're going to need plenty of space, and where better to find it than in a luxury villa?

Villanovo has a selection of properties in the South West of France that can sleep 10-plus people: with spectacular villas in Bordeaux, Perigord, Saint Emilion... and many other fabulous French towns.


Family friendly breaks

While the French Riviera can promise a certain type of glitz and glamour, for a more low-key, family-oriented break, renting a villa in the South West of France is a great option. The beaches of Arcachon bay, so beloved by the likes of Sartre and Cocteau, are sure to charm the whole family. While the pleasant climate is perfect for all manner of outdoor activities: from tennis and golf to hiking and biking, not to mention all of the beach fun you can think of, be it swimming, surfing, paddle boarding... the list goes on!


Self-catering or with house staff

A great many of the handpicked villas available in Villanovo's selection come with the option of house staff. These professional cooks are more than happy to show off some of the local delicacies, while saving you time that you can spend... well, doing whatever you like!

For those of you who want to live out the dream of cooking up your own Ratatouille in a rustic farmhouse kitchen in the south of France, self-catering options are also available to you.


Stunning French villas by the beach

While it is the vibrancy of the leafy landscapes that immediately stands out when you visit the South West of France, the beaches of the Cote d'Argent are also something to behold, and perhaps France's best kept secret. This achingly beautiful coastline doesn't receive the same volume of tourists as the more glamourous resorts of the Cote d’Azur and can offer their stunning natural beauty just a short walk from many of our villas.

Take a trip to golden sands of Moliets-Plage, which runs between the shoreline of the Atlantic and the Courant d'Huchet nature reserve and make the most of some of the best waves in Europe.
