Stunning coastlines, pretty cobbled streets, and fragrant lavender fields await visitors in the beautiful region of Provence
Provence in southern France has long been recognised for its outstanding landscapes, attracting artists and tourists for centuries.
This unique corner of southern France combines lively coastal cities and quaint, whisper-quiet villages. It is a vast region of contrasts and connections, of snow-topped mountains and delightful sea resorts, of shepherds and yacht captains, of cork oak and palm trees, of a simple beef stew and an elaborate bouillabaisse.
Provence is more than a lush vision that hides its complexity under a veil of simple delights. It is home to the incredible red colours of the Esterel Mountains, the taste of tapenade, the scent of rosemary, the cadence of the Provençal accent, and - above all - the mistral, the fierce wind that blows down from the Alps.
