When renting a house for cooking the cuisine of Provence look for a full kitchen with oven and a food chopper for making breaded dishes and stuffings,  Some apartments will have only a stove top gas grill or a hot plate.
Stock up on olive oil, it  replaces the use of butter in Provence. The first cold press oil in Provence is both vegetable and fruit in a miraculously cholesterol-friendly oil.  It compliments simple fare and can be used in salads and soups, roasted dishes and for basting.
Bring a jug to the olive oil mill and take your supply of first cold press in bulk.  Inquire about doing the same at the vineyards.
