While away the hours in this charming little village

Situated in France's Bouches-du-Rhone region, the charming and historic heart of Salon was fortified in the 12th century, and much of the area is steeped in history. Whether you while away your time in Crousillat, the town's most picturesque square, or explore the local museums and historic landmarks, you're likely to come away from visiting the place feeling refreshed and renewed. Expand your search of Salon-de-Provence vacation rentals to include sprawling villas in the hills or charming stone houses in town, and enjoy envisioning what your temporary life will be like in the south of France.

Channel your inner "Julie & Julia" in the French countryside

The best way to enjoy Salon-de-Provence is to stroll the medieval streets, taking in the sights and sounds of life in Southern France. Spend your days ambling along the cobbled paths, paying attention to the market schedule so you can pick up fresh fruit, vegetables, and locally made soaps (yes, soaps). Or, limit your choices of Salon-de-Provence vacation rentals to any set up in the hillside. There are hiking and cycling trails to take you back into town, or you can stay close to home and go picnicking in the surrounding olive groves.

From beauty to history to the history of beauty

If you're not afraid of the macabre, visit the Maison de Nostradamus, home of the 16th-century philosopher, and explore the scrolls of his prophecies that line the walls. After, visit his remains inside the Gothic Collegiale St-Laurent, built in the 14th century. If you're less interested in prophecies and more interested in beauty regimens, Salon-de-Provence has you covered here, too. Thanks to the region's abundance of olive oil, 2 soapmakers call Salon home—Savonnerie Marius Fabre since 1900, and Savonnerie Rampal-Latour since 1907. Both feature small museums and factory tours.

Spring into action and fall in love with Provence

Salon-de-Provence is best enjoyed anytime from April through October, as much of the region quiets down in the gray of winter. If you prefer to visit when the streets are at their busiest, look for Salon-de-Provence vacation rentals in the height of summer. This is the peak season, and you're likely to find higher prices and large crowds. If you'd prefer to avoid both, then your best bets are the shoulder seasons. The weather is nearly perfect from April through June and September through October, and the crowds are more manageable.

All the best medieval villages are set among rolling hills

Salon-de-Provence sits in the rolling hills of Southern France, in the country's Bouches-du-Rhone district. The town can claim a variety of national parks as its backyard, including the marshlands, forests, and Luberon mountains of both the Alpilles Natural Regional Park and the Luberon Natural Regional Park. Each of these spots offer plenty of trails for exploring the local flora and fauna, as does the nearby Camargue, which sits at the end of the Rhone River. This park is famous for its beaches, rocky coastlines, and wild white horses.
