Are you looking for the best Airbnbs in Provence for your dream vacation? You’ve come to the right place!
Provence in itself is a complete dream, but sometimes searching for the right Airbnb for you and your friends and/or family can be a bit of a nightmare. There are SO many great options for this bucket list destination that it can be completely overwhelming to find a place that meets all of your needs.
I personally LOVE the task of finding the perfect place to stay, so I’ve made it easier for you to choose the best Airbnb in Provence as your base to enjoy this beautiful part of the world.
Best Airbnbs in Provence with Amazing Views
Provence is home to some truly magnificent views and so it makes sense that you would want an Airbnb that showcases this. This Villa is located near the charming village of L’Isle Sur la Sorgue, right in the heart of Provence. While the exterior is classic Provence, the interior has some modern touches with decor and gorgeous floor-to-ceiling windows.
In addition to the terrace and views, there is also a swimming pool which is an amazing feature to have in the summer months. In addition, the host provides games (table tennis and foosball), a trampoline and there is a bathroom in every room (a major plus for multiple couples or families with kids!) And with twelve 5-star reviews, you really can’t go wrong.
Location: L’Isle Sur la Sorgue
Key Features: Pool, Scenic Views, Terrace, En-Suite Bathrooms
Rate: From $205/night +fees, sleeps 6 | 3 beds· 3 baths
Another stunner with a pool and terrace, it’s easy to see why this property is one of my recommendations for the best Airbnbs in Provence for your vacation. It’s perched on the hillside of the village of Bonnieux, one of the famous hilltop villages of the Luberon region of Provence.
Can’t you just envision yourself having breakfast or cocktails (or breakfast cocktails?!) overlooking this valley? In addition to the 3 LEVEL terrace, pool and view, this villa also has air conditioning which isn’t very common in France or Europe.
A few things to note about this listing: Since it is multi-level with a high wall drop and multiple staircases, the host asks that requests that include children under 12 and pets are submitted for approval prior to booking. Personally, I see this as a great property to book with friends when you’re taking a vacation away from the little kiddos, but if your little ones are a bit older and/or used to multi-level properties, then it’s probably fine.
Key Features: Pool, 3 Level Terrace, Air Conditioning
Rate: From $303/night +fees, sleeps 6 | 3 beds· 3.5 baths
The village of Gordes is well known as one of the most beautiful villages in Provence, perched on a hillside with views of the Luberon valley. We’ve visited Gordes several times at sunset and the colors and views are really unbeatable. This house boasts these gorgeous panoramic views of the surrounding countryside but also provides the conveniences of village life, which is one of the many reasons I added it to my list of best Airbnbs in Provence.
The property also boasts high-speed wifi, a newly renovated luxurious interior, and the “best view available”. Even the locals are stunned.” Gordes is also a great home base for exploring the perched villages of the Luberon region and surrounding small towns.
Key Features: 270 Degree Panoramic Views, High-Speed Wifi, Luxurious interior space
Rate: From $254/night +fees, sleeps 4 | 2 beds· 2 baths (1 bedroom)
Best Airbnbs in Provence on a Budget
This adorable Airbnb is perfect for you and your partner, your small family, or 2 couples and it doesn’t break the bank! I consider “budget” if the nightly rate is under $150 (preferably closer to $100) and finding a place that fits this criterion AND a five-star review is such a great deal! And a private pool & garden terrace? Sign me up!
Recently renovated, this historic townhouse is located in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence which is a great spot for exploring the whole region and is within walking distance of shops and restaurants. It also has a travel crib and high chair upon request which is great for small families.
Key Features: Private Parking, Pool & Terrace, Luxurious interior space
Rate: From $117/night +fees, sleeps 4 | 3 beds (2nd bedroom can be made into 2 twin beds if needed)· 2 baths
This quaint option in Avignon is a nice super budget-friendly choice for a couple, friends, or small family. Located right outside the city center, it provides a wonderful location for exploring the region and has the conveniences of being in a city. The house is in Avignon but about a 15-minute walk from the center, giving it a quiet/local neighborhood vibe.
Many guests noted how clean, thoughtfully decorated, and well-equipped the house is. A few even went as far as to say it was the nicest Airbnb they had ever stayed in! Even though it is small, there are 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and even a small courtyard. The reviews even mentioned that the laundry had a drying feature which is not very common in the South of France (or Europe).
Right now the listing is from $67/night which is an insane deal! Definitely a great choice for your trip.
Key Features: Courtyard, Washer AND Dryer, Free parking lot nearby
Rate: From $67/night +fees, sleeps 4 | 2 beds· 2 baths
Best Airbnbs in Provence for Village Life
There are benefits to staying in either the countryside or a village during your Provence trip, but French village life is a wonderful experience to add to your trip. This adorable home is located in the village of Goult which is right in the heart of the Luberon.
The recently renovated 3-level home is within close walking distance to cafes, restaurants, and local shops (cheese, butcher, boulangerie). This ensures so you will have everything you need right at your fingertips! This, to me, is the main appeal of staying in a village as opposed to the countryside, as you don’t NEED to get into your car to access the basics.
Reviewers reveled at how well-equipped, peaceful and comfortable the house is and the location in Goult can’t be beaten with its proximity to all the Luberon villages.
Key Features: Rooftop terrace, large TV, Stone vaulted ceilings
Rate: From $175/night +fees, sleeps 4 | 3 beds· 1.5 baths
St. Remy de Provence is one of my favorite spots in the area, so this location in my opinion provides the perfect spot to experience village life. That said, it is also very convenient to the Luberon, Marseille, and the Camargue, all regions worth exploring as well.
What stood out to me about this Airbnb was the cute outdoor space (not a given for a house within a city or village), and its charming decor. This house would be great for a small family or 2 couples or friends, but note there is only 1 bathroom. It is walkable to the center of the village and was described by guests as very clean and even, “the stuff made of dreams”.
Location: St. Remy de Provence
Key Features: Outdoor garden/terrace, BBQ,
Rate: From $88/night +fees, sleeps 4 | 2 beds· 1 baths
While Aix-en-Provence is larger than what I would describe as a “village”, it’s smaller and more quaint than the large cities of Nice and Marseille and is a great “middle ground” if you want to stay somewhere bustling but also with a more accessible feel.
This Airbnb is recently renovated, spacious, smartly decorated, and has an amazing terrace to boot! This property would most likely be best for a small family or group of friends, as it has one room with a king bed and another room with 3 single beds. Also, it is on the 4th floor of the building and there is no elevator, so keep that in mind if any of your group has issues with stairs.
Guests loved the terrace and view as well as the proximity to delicious restaurants and boulangeries.
Key Features: Terrace with city view, Great light, Air Conditioning
Rate: From $244/night +fees, sleeps 5 | 4 beds· 2 baths (1 toilet)
Best Airbnbs in Provence with a Terrace or Garden
Another great option in Aix-en-Provence, this terrace looks absolutely next level! I love having a terrace when on vacation as it provides so much more social space for groups. This Airbnb is centrally located within Aix so you will be steps away from anything you need.
The view does mean that this is another 4-floor climb to reach the apartment, but all five-star reviews strongly suggest it is worth it! The space is also well-equipped with air conditioning, laundry, and a sleek and modern interior space. A great option to consider for 2 couples or a small family.
Terraces are not always a given within cities/villages so this is definitely a great find if you want a beautiful terrace but also want to experience the bustle and charm of Aix.
Key Features: Terrace with view, City center proximity, Air conditioning
Rate: From $124/night +fees, sleeps 4 | 2 beds· 2 baths
This terrace/garden truly had me swooning! With a pool (and safety cover for littles), hot tub, outdoor kitchen/dining area, pool house, and plenty of lounge furniture, why would you ever go inside?
Of course, you might be staying in the chillier months, in which case you will see that the inside of this property is also amazing. I love the clean look of the decor with classic Provencal touches and the unique tiling details. This one is also quite spacious so it’s a great choice for groups and families taking a vacation together.
Also to note, the location of this house is Ménerbes which is the famous setting of author Peter Mayle’s memoir “A Year in Provence”. It’s in close proximity to the Luberon villages and is an amazing spot for exploring the region or just staying put and enjoying the features of the property.
Key Features: Pool & Hot tub, Outdoor kitchen & dining space, Garden & boule court
Rate: From $255/night +fees, sleeps 11 | 8 beds (5 Bedrooms) · 4 baths
This beautiful Airbnb in Provence is an Airbnb PLUS, which means it is part of a group of high-quality group properties with hosts who are known for their attention to detail and great reviews.
When you look at the photos and reviews of the house, it’seasy to see why this property made it to our list of best Airbnbs in Provence! The rental is part of a historic farmhouse where the owners live in one wing and the other wing is your rental. There is a private entrance, pool & hot tub.
The house sits on a 1.6-acre property with olive groves and fruit orchards. It also has a boule court, badminton, table tennis, 6 mountain bikes, and a giant garden chess set. Guests appreciated the attentive hosts, property amenities, and location (right in the heart of the Luberon.) This place would make an excellent choice for a family vacation or group friends trip!
Rate: From $395/night +fees, sleeps 8 | 7 beds· 3 baths
If you’re looking for a nice, budget-friendly option that gives you a city experience but also has a nice terrace, this is a great choice! This apartment has an excellent location in Aix-en-Provence as it is a short walk to the Cours Mirabeau at the heart of this city.
The apartment is clean, cozy, and smartly decorated, making it a great home base for a couple, a few friends, or a small family. As with most city apartments with an amazing terrace view, the view comes at the cost of a 4-floor walk-up. Be sure to keep this in mind if you have mobility issues or a lot of luggage. Guests promise however that the view from the top is well worth it!
Key Features: Terrace with view, Great location within city
Rate: From $141/night +fees, sleeps 6 | 2 beds· 1 sofa bed · 1 bath
Best Family Friendly Airbnbs in Provence
Another beautiful option in the village of Gordes, this Airbnb offers quiet and solitude at an attractive price. It also offers the benefit of being secluded but yet there is only a 15-minute walk between you and the village. It has also been recently renovated for your comfort.
While it would be a great option for a group of adults/friends, it is also great for families. It has a secure cover over the pool, game room, boule court, and baby items (travel crib, changing mat, bathtub, toilet, and booster chair). The terrace is spacious and would be lovely for meals outdoors.
Many of the reviews mention having small children with them during their stay and felt the space was particularly accommodating. And, with 61 five-star reviews, this place seems like a real catch!
Key Features: Pool, Terrace, Boule Court
Rate: From $108/night +fees, sleeps 6 | 3 bedrooms· 4 beds· 1.5 baths
While this Airbnb location is a bit more off the beaten “Provence path” than the others on my list, I couldn’t leave it off my list of best Airbnbs in Provence because WOW. Described by guests as being in the perfect spot between the mountains and the sea, this property is a great choice if you are traveling as a family or a friend group with kids.
First off, there are 4 bedrooms, so plenty of room for the whole gang. There is an amazing outdoor space with 2 temperature adjustable pools, a garden, and a large wooden playground for the kids. The pool space is also enclosed for safety if you have very small children, which is something that I’ve found to be rare in Airbnbs in Europe.
The host also provides all the amenities for children, including a pack-and-play crib, high chair, baby gates, high chair, children’s games, and books as well as some treats for older kids (and adults) like a PS3 console and an extra large TV with Disney+, Netflix, Apple TV, Fire TV, Amazon Prime Video.
(Note that this property can only be booked from Saturday to Saturday, 1-week minimum.)
Key Features: Terrace with 2 pools, kids playground, well equipped
Rate: From $318/night +fees, sleeps 6 | 4 beds· 2 baths
If you’re traveling in a large group with kids, this Airbnb in Aureille is an excellent choice! The house is located in the heart of the Alpilles mountain range, putting it close to amazing Provence destinations such as Les-Baux-des-Provence, Eygaliers, and St. Remy de Provence. You’ll also have a view of the Alpilles themselves which are quite breathtaking.
For children (and adults) there is a fenced-in pool, a slide, bicycles for rent, and a foosball table. The Airbnb is secluded yet walkable to the main village. Guests also mentioned the chicken coop with eggs which is such a fun treat for little kids and a great addition to my list of best Airbnbs in Provence.
Key Features: Pool & playground equipment, excellent location, well equipped
Rate: From $214/night +fees, sleeps 12 | 9 beds (6 bedrooms) · 4 baths
