I have just returned from the south of France. I have driven in many countries around the world, including extensively in the US, Europe and the Middle East. The standards of driving in southern France, apart from on the Autoroutes (i.e. freeways, motorways), are probably the worst I have ever experienced. It is a beautiful place and the people are generally very pleasant, but if you ever have to drive there, be prepared.
