Finest Global continues its focus on the South of France with its guide to luxury property in Bouches-du-Rhone:

Climate

The region has a Mediterranean climate with all the benefits that entails: dry summers and dry winters too, with temperatures going from hot to mild without any major discomfort. Even the cold wind from the Rhone valley that blows in during the spring cannot disrupt its welcoming, comfortable atmosphere.

 

Lifestyle

Bouches-du- Rhone is the most populous department of the Provence-Alpes-Cote-d'Azur and with good reason: it is home to the city of Marseille and Aix-en-Provence. With their range of cultural activities and such a beautiful coastal environment, it is no surprise that the region's residents have included Vincent van Gogh, who painted the landscape a lot.

 

Economy

Home to the port of Marseille, Bouches-du-Rhone has historically relied upon trade as a main source of finance, but over the years, while fishing and trade remain important, the Old Port has evolved into a marina area, full of restaurants, bars and hotels - a reflection of the wealth that has been poured into the area, both by real estate investors and companies.
