To make the planning process easier for you, below are a few tips and tricks for organizing the most incredible trip. Hopefully, this should help you to make your time in the South of France as enjoyable and memorable as possible.

Go to the right area

The South of France is a big area, which means that it’s worth taking your time to pick the perfect place for your trip. From Nice and St Tropez to Gorges Du Verdon and Arles, southern France is home to some beautiful areas. The most important thing when selecting the perfect place is to decide on the type of break that you want.

Say, for instance, you want a break that’s luxurious and packed full of glamor, there’s no doubt about it, St Tropez is the perfect place. For a more relaxed break, complete with little elements of glitz and glamor, Nice could be ideal. Take the time to think about the type of break you want and then choose the place that’s perfect for that kind of experience.

Hire a car in advance

Regardless of the type of trip you want, you’re going to want to be able to get out and about while you’re away. The South of France has so many amazing sights and attractions, and so, you’re going to want to be able to see as many of them as possible. Hence why hiring a car before you head off on your trip is a must. You could use public transport – trains, buses and taxis, but having a hire car will make it much easier to get about.

Choose the most suitable accommodation option

It’s time to talk accommodation. This is always the tricky part of planning a trip, as it’s so important to get it right. Research the best areas within the city or town that you want to stay in. If you plan on having a relaxed trip, it might be worth booking accommodation that’s slightly away from the center of town. Instead, look for a villa or holiday cottage that’s on the outskirts. That way, you won’t have to worry about being bothered by late night noise. However, if you want a break where you can go drinking until all hours, staying in the heart of the town or city could be ideal.

There’s so much more I could tell you about this beautiful area, this guide just covers the basics. Wherever you opt to go in the South of France, you’re sure to have the most amazing time.
