The South of France is a vast area with a wide choice of excellent hotels, apartments, holiday villas and campsites for family holidays and breaks on all budgets. In Marseille, we recommend the Grand Hôtel Beauvau Vieux Port in an historic building overlooking the harbour, with duplex suites for families. In the Camargue, the most characterful choice is local mas (estates founded in the 16th and 17th century by wealthy landlords from Arles) converted into luxurious hotels, some offering riding excursions. In addition, our partner Madame Vacances offers some great self-catering properties in holiday parks.
