Marseille and Provence

Has anyone flown into the Marseille airport and picked up a car to tour Provence? Any issues/ hassles?
What is the best town to rent a condo, house/ villa on the French riviera?

I've flown into Marseille and picked up and returned a rental car there. Very easy airport to use to pick up a car and reasonably straightforward road in and out of airport and out to major highway. No issues, no hassles on outbound or inbound. Car was brand new and no problems with rental agency accepting my credit card insurance in lieu of taking their collision insurance. I did not rent on the riviera - we rented a house in a village in Provence.

This is probably not much help since I did not rent a car out of the Mareille's airport but I did rent a car at the port of Marseille after departing our cruise ship and it went smoothly. St. Tropez is a beautiful French town on the Riviera if you are committed to being on the water. John
