2023 House rental prices in France for long term rentals 

In terms of providing you with a guide for the current house rental prices in Southern France for a long term rentals for 2023, the table below gives you an average pricing by location and size of property. 

What we can see is that there are in effect 2 different rental markets for the South of France. There is a rental market for properties in the Languedoc (Occitanie), Dordogne and Midi-Pyrenees; and a different rental market for the Cote d'Azur and parts of Provence (end 2 columns).

You will pay an additional premium of around 15% for rental properties in Toulouse, Montpellier, Avignon, Cannes and Nice. In Central Provence, the popular areas of Dordogne and also in Cote d'Azur, the rental prices can vary quite a lot depending on the location.

In some locations, such as Aix-en-Provence, St Tropez, St Maxime, St Raphael, Theoule-sur-Mer, Mougins, Antibes, Valbonne, Super-Cannes and outer-Nice; the prices can in some cases be double or even triple the rental rates for properties located in the Gard, Herault, Aude, Pyrenees-Orientales and Midi-Pyrenees.

In terms of long term rental periods over the summer months or 12 month annual rentals, the rental price will generally be down to negotiation. It should be remembered however, that any property with a private swimming pool will be able to rent out for summer holiday rentals quite easily. A 4 bed villa with private pool in the Languedoc region will be able to charge between €2000 to €2500 per week.

In the Cote d'Azur the weekly rental prices will be anywhere between €3000 and €5000 per week in the summer months. Therefore, if you are looking to get a monthly rental price in Cote d'Azur for a period which includes the high season summer months, the starting point for the negotiations with the Owner will be the €20,000 to €30,000 of summer rental income that they will lose if they rent the house out monthly. 

My advice would be either to avoid starting the rental period before the high season or if this is not possible, consider vacating the property for a few weeks over the high season. In addition to this, you also need to consider whether renting a property with a pool is absolutely essential. In the summer, yes of course it will be, but you also need to be aware that for 8 months of the year you will not be using the pool but you will be paying for it in the form of a higher rent. 

Featured rental properties in France - utility bill prices

Normally the published rental price excludes the utility bills (water, electricity, internet and communal taxes). The utility bills are based on consumption, but as a rough guide, the following monthly amounts usually cover the utility costs:

  • 1 bedroom - €75 per month
  • 2 bedroom - €120 per month
  • 3 bedroom - €150 per month
  • 4 bedroom - €200-€300 per month

 

Cote d'Azur & Provence long term rental prices

nice south france500The Cote d'Azur or French Riviera encompasses the French departments of the Var and Alpes-Maritmes, and includes the popular destinations of Nice, Cannes, St Tropez, Grasse, Frejus, Menton, Antibes and Villefranche-sur-Mer. Think of the South of France and Nice comes squarely into mind.

With its broad avenues, wide sweeping bay and golden beach it is not difficult to see why some 3 million people flock to Nice every year. Nice has more museums than any French city outside of Paris (17 in total) and it is also home to a celebrated Nice Jazz festival, one of the oldest Jazz festivals in the World. I actually enjoy Nice outside of the summer season. During February, Nice holds one of the oldest and biggest carnivals in the World and during December, the Nice Christmas market ("Le Village de Noel") is one of the best Christmas markets in France.

Cannes is always associated with its celebrated film festival which has been running continuously for 70 years. But here is actually more going on in Cannes than just the the red carpet. The city holds 12 important events and conferences throughout the year including the International TV and media festival MIPTV, an international property show called MIDEM, various fashion and shopping events. Cannes has a charming Old Town, a beautiful central boulevard (Le Croisette) which bends around the Bay and it has a number of good beaches. Also on the coastline surrounding Cannes you will find some delightful places to stay, such as Antibes, Theoule-sur-Mer and Mandelieu La Napoule.

The chic resort of St Tropez remains the the summer home of the rich, famous and beautiful. St Tropez's beaches (Tahiti Plage and Pampelonne) are among the best in the world and its harbour only loses out to Monaco for the highest value of yachts on show. 

Inland from the coast, the Cote d'Azur does offer some excellent places to live, although these can seem quite congested or 'bustling' as the travel blogs will say. So I would certainly pick out the hilltop town of Mougins, with its fabulous art museum and highly regarded International School; the market town of Valbonne, which provides convenient access to the Sofia Antipolis technology park; the lovely village of Biot, the coastal town of Menton, famous for its annual Lemon Festival, the picturesque town of Vence and the smaller village of Chateauneuf-de-Grasse.

 

lavendar field provence france500Provence is a beautiful part of France, with gorgeous towns and villages such as Aix, St Remy and Arles, Gordes, Roussillon and Seillans.

The old University town of Aix-en-Provence is a wonderful place to spend time in. Aix is often referred to as the city of a thousand fountains and they are literally everywhere throughout the town. I would describe Aix as an excellent walking town. You just get so much enjoyment from mooching about the shops, exploring the different squares and winding streets and just stumbling across a market or local festival.

The pretty Provence village of Seillans is located to the west of Cannes on a beautiful hillside overlooking a valley. Seillans is situated in the eastern Var, beside the popular village of Fayence and about a half-hour drive west of Grasse. The picturesque medieval center of this town is so steep that it is only accessible on foot. 

The hilltop town of Roussillon in Provence is often regarded as one of the most beautiful towns of Provence. Roussillon is situated close to Avignon. From Roussillon, you have beautiful views of the surrounding National Park du Luberon.

Saint-Remy-de-Provence is a pretty little town, often regarded as the heart of Provence. The centre of the town has lots of mazy streets and it has a large market which takes over the town every Saturday morning. Saint-Remy-de-Provence was the birthplace of Nostradamus, a 16th-century author famous for his prophecies. There are lots of small restaurants and pavement cafes, as well as interesting little shops. Nearby to Saint Remy, you will find the Baux de Provence, a picturesque village perched on the edge of a rocky outcrop.

Arles is definitely my favourite city in the South of France. With its Roman heritage - complete with Amphitheatre, Forum and Theatre; beautiful 17th Century mansions, mazy streets, modern Museums and wide rolling river; Arles has it all. Arles was also the main base for artists Van Gogh and Paul Gauguin. Vincent van Gogh painted some of his most famous masterpieces during his short time in the city. Arles is also convenient for exploring the Camargue, a really stunning area of natural beauty, with its famous white horses, flamingos and wetlands. 

Most people don't realise that Marseille is located in Provence. It is the second-largest city in France and the largest city in Provence. The city is a bit of a mixed bag. Scruffy (and dangerous in parts) and also charming and modern in others. The Vieux Port area of the city is always rewarding and here you will find market stalls filled Provençal products, Moroccan-like souks and a centuries-old fish market. Make sure you stop somewhere and order a bowl of bouillabaisse, a traditional fish stew from Marseilles containing different kinds of fish, shellfish and vegetables. It really is delicious and in France it has an almost mythical status.

L'Isle sur Sorgue is a very pretty town in the north of Provence. Located on the banks of the river Sorgue, L'Isle sur Sorgue was originally a fishing village, situated on an island in the middle of marshland. The river Sorgue provided a a healthy source of income for the town's inhabitants from crayfishing and milling (oil and flour). It is also a popular centre for antiques and pottery.

South West France - 2023 long term rental properties 

dordogne landscape500These rental properties in the South-West of France cover the popular areas of Dordogne, Charente and Midi-Pyrenees, within the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region. The South-West of France features a dramatic and varied landscape, with beautiful river valleys, rolling vineyards, amazing Chateaux and stunning villages. 

The ancient province of Perigord, covers much of the modern day areas of Charente, Dordogne and the Lot. Périgord is still used as a tourism term to distinguish the different landscapes of this region. Périgord Noir (Black), is located in the east of the region (mainly the Eastern half of Dordogne) and with the town of Sarlat as its capital. It takes its name from the dark oak forests that predominate here.

Périgord Blanc (White) is located in the centre of the region and is named after the numerous white limestone plateaux in the area (the stone from which was quarried and used to build many of the buildings). The historic town of Perigueux is the located in the centre of this area.

The French writer, Jules Verne (who wrote Around the World in Eighty Days) was the first person to use the term Périgord Vert (Green) to describe this area of northern Dordogne and the Southern belt of Charente. The name comes from the forests, lush grass meadows and wide river valleys that dominate the landscape. The area also includes one of the top 10 prettiest villages in France: Brantôme.

Périgord Pourpre (Purple) covers the famous vineyards of the Bordeaux and Bergerac wine regions. The area correlates to the border between southern Dordogne and the Lot.

The regional capital, Bordeaux, is a really beautiful city. I visited it with the family this summer for a few days. I had forgotten what a great city it is. The main shopping area is long straight street - purportedly, the longest shopping street in Europe. But the main delight was simply wandering through all the different squares, stopping for a drink, people watching and admiring all the beautiful old buildings.

In the South-West of France, the pace of life is slow - enabling you to enjoy the simple pleasures in life. The regional gastronomy tilts towards a lot of duck dishes, black truffles, river trout with mild mushrooms and the most famous dish of all, Poule au pot d’Henri IV

These 4 rental properties in Dordogne, Charente and Midi-Pyrenees are all available for 2023 rentals:

Languedoc long term rental properties France available in 2023

pont du diable2 500Languedoc-Roussillon has always been the more down-to-earth neighbour of the adjoining Provence & Cote d'Azur region. This is reflected in a landscape that ranges from rugged mountains to vine-covered hills and plains, down to its vast sandy beaches of the coast. The Languedoc region was recently enlarged to cover parts of the the former region of Midi-Pyrenees and rebranded as Occitanie (but everyone here still calls it the Languedoc).

The Languedoc is the second largest region in mainland France and has a population of nearly 6 million people. The Languedoc forms a border with Spain and the Pyrenees in the South, the Mediterranean sea on the East, Nouvelle-Aquitaine on the West and Provence in the North East.

The Languedoc benefits from over 40 blue flag beaches along its coastline. Its vineyards produce more wine per year than the whole of the United States, with high-class vineyards including Corbières, Minervois, Faugères and Pic St-Loup. The hinterland of Languedoc features numerous National Parks and beautiful regions such as Lozere, the Cevennes, Aubrac and the Pyrenees. Its history stretches back over 5,000 years, before Roman times, with Beziers being the oldest city in France. The Languedoc is also home to one of France's most dynamic cities, Montpellier, the fastest growing city in France. It is home to the world's oldest continuously operating university and it also frequently tops the list of French cities the French people would like to live in.

The Roman cities of Nimes and Narbonne, wear their long history with pride and today provide a relaxed Southern French lifestyle. The stunning medieval castle at Carcassonne is the 3rd most visited site in the whole of France. Perpignan is the capital of French Catalonia, only becoming part of France in 1661. The city has a distinct Catalan feel and provides access to the beautiful Cote Vermeille coast (with the harbour town of Collioure being the pick-out destination. Perpignan is also the gateway to the French Pyrenees.

The cuisine in the Languedoc is as diverse as the geography. Covering fresh seafood from the town of Sète and the fishing villages along the Etang de Thau, (the small village of Bouzigues is famous throughout France for its Oysters). Meat lovers will enjoy one of Languedoc's most famous dishes, the hearty cassoulet, a duck, sausage and bean stew cooked in goose fat, which hails from Carcassonne, Castelnaudary and Toulouse – but which normally includes haricot beans, sausage and confit of duck or goose.

The Languedoc region of France is well served by the transport network, with a great train service from Paris (the TGV), an extensive road network and 5 local airports serving Paris and the main Euopean cities.

Whilst more expensive to live in, than areas of Central and Northern France, you can still pick up rental properties virtually half the price of neighbouring Provence and Cote d'Azur. With its sunny climate, quieter roads and a greater range of things to do and see, the Languedoc offers a much better quality of life than its upmarket cousins.
