South West France has luxury villas set on miles of sandy beaches, unspoilt ancient historic villages, vineyards and chateaux galore. But where to go in this corner of France? The Dordogne - ideal for both outdoor adventures (cycling, rafting and kayaking) and exploring the hilltop fortresses and medieval towns - has long been one of Europe's most popular destinations for a villa holiday.
To the east, Languedoc produces one third of all the grapes in France, a delicious reason to head to this region. And for beachcombers, looking for French villas by the sea, there's the Côte d'Argent, the longest stretch of coastline in Europe with its highest sand dune: Dune du Pilat.
Our luxury villas in South West France include a majestic chateau in the Dordogne, perfect for multi-generational celebrations, and a fabulous belle époch house overlooking the ocean in captivating Cap Ferret. Be lulled to sleep by the sound of waves at a beach house on Ile de Ré or enjoy fine wines at Mas des Vignes surrounded by the famous vineyards of Bordeaux. The choice is yours.
