Five reasons to visit the South of France

South of France

Unlike most people I know, I didn’t set foot on a plane until I was 15. And it was for a school Geography trip to Barcelona. Despite having a two week break every year in the sunshine. My mum’s fear of flying meant our summer holiday destinations had to be within driving distance. So as a child, that meant I spent my two week summer holiday in the South of France.

Now please don’t feel sorry me. Despite the fact it would take us two days to drive there. With one child who refused to talk to anyone and spent her whole time plugged into her Sony Discman (me). And another with horrendous travel sickness (my brother). They were actually incredibly fun holidays. So here are five reasons to visit the South of France:

St Tropez

You can’t visit the South of France and not head over to St Tropez. It’s everything you’d expect it to be and more. With beautiful boats, gorgeous views and some serious amazing shopping opportunities. St Tropez is one of the glitziest and chicest places around, and one not to be missed.


Being on the south coast of France normally means glorious sunshine. Or at least it has been every time I’ve visited. Plus it’s only a few short hours away by plane. Unless of course you fancy the two day car trip like my parents did each year.


Although the beach isn’t sandy, Nice is well worth a visit purely for the uber-famous Promenade De Anglais. Which lets you walk along the beach enjoying the beautiful views along the coast.


It’s well known that France has some of the best culinary delights in the world. And the South of France is no exception. You can expect to eat in some beautiful restaurants and delight in the gorgeous local wine.


Now it wouldn’t be a holiday without the chance to stay in a beautiful villa on the French Riviera. You could live the dream in the South of France in a villa in Nice or St Tropez with a private pool and room for all your friends. If you’re looking for holidays in France, then I would definitely recommend a villa.

Have you ever been to the South of France?

    The villa idea sounds lovely. I would love to hire a villa for a week or two with a few friends. The South of France sounds wonderful πŸ™‚

    I absolutely love the south of France – I practically grew up there, spending every summer there for 8/9 weeks between the age of 11 and 16 πŸ™‚ I used to stay with my French penfriend and her family in a little village outside of Toulon, it’s a beautiful area x

    I’ve never been to the South of France, but my other half has, and he loved it. One day we’ll start travelling this great wide world together and I can’t wait πŸ™‚
