In 2020, a survey was conducted in France to find the best places to live, based on over 180 quality of life measures. The survey took 2 years to complete and analysed over 34,000 different communes (towns & villages) throughout France. In the top 50 best places to live in France, there were no less than 11 towns in the South of France (including Nice, Avignon, Cannes, Theoule-sur-Mer, Nimes, Montpellier, Antibes and Hyères).
The tourism sector is big business for the South of France. In 2019, there were an incredible total of 65 million nights spent in tourist accommodation (hotels, B&Bs, villas and rental apartments). Across Cote d'Azur, Provence and the Languedoc, it is estimated that there are over 150,000 jobs dependent on the tourism industry and it comprises 15% of the local economy.
Given the size and scale of the South of France, wouldn't it be handy if you had a local person on the ground who can advise you on the best places to stay and all the sites to visit. That is the mission of Go South France.
3. The personal touch
Let me introduce you to Tara. She is 30 years old, she has been living in France for 7 years. She loves animals, she cannot hold her drink and she drives a really bright yellow car (and I mean, really bright!). She is who you will be dealing with at Go South France from your initial enquiry to your final reservation. She is a real person, not an automated email response. She knows all about the holiday rentals that we advertise and she has personally visited most of them. She can therefore help you with questions about the property and the local area.
All the team at Go South France have established roots in Southern France with our families. We know the area inside out and back to front, so we are happy to give you the best tips and advice, so you can book your holiday with peace of mind.
We are not a massive company. Just 5 independent people who love what we do. When we came here we started from scratch and we have worked hard to build up Go South France to what it is today. So if you book your holiday through Go South France you will have confidence that you and others like you, will be enabling our small team to keep on living the dream of being here in the South of France.
4. Peace of mind
We personally inspect all the properties that we advertise on Go South France. We even add in the date of our last visit into the property advert. So you can book your holiday with full confidence.
We also personally monitor all the holiday payments to ensure the money is delivered to the property owner. Whether you pay by card or by bank transfer your money is safe and secure throughout.
In the last 15 years of business, we have never had a double-booking. We are quite proud of this statement.
We work closely with all our Property Owners to ensure the availability calendars are up to date and when we take a reservation, the Property Owner guarantees that your holiday dates are secure.
We also work incredibly close to all the property managers, pool guys and even the gardeners. Your accommodation will be spotlessly clean, the pool will be crystal clear and the garden will be perfectly manicured for those relaxing days you are longing for.
In other words, we want you to have the best holiday possible, with no stress whatsoever!
5. Best deals
We work directly with the Property Owners to advertise their villas, holiday homes and apartments for holiday rentals. By cutting out the middle man, we are able to keep the holiday prices as low as possible.
Throughout the year, we offer great deals on holidays to the South of France, from early booking discounts to late deals. We have a quick and simple online payment service that is fully secure.
