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.
