Arguably the most beautiful area of France

France

The destination

Have you ever seen enchanting photos of fields upon fields of deep purple lavender and wished to be instantly transported there? Well look no further! Arguably the most irresistible region in France, Provence ranges from the snow-capped mountains of the southern Alps to the delta plains of the Camargue, and boasts evidence of its appeal from the Greeks, Romans, Saracens, schismatic popes, and an endless succession of competing counts and princes – everyone wants to be here!

It is no wonder this area of natural and striking beauty inspired artists like Cézanne and Van Gogh with its azure skies, windswept landscapes and medieval villages perched upon hilltops. You could be forgiven for thinking that Provence consists only of the distinguishable rolling vineyards and fragrant lavender fields but you couldn’t be more wrong! On the coast, port towns and glamorous resorts are scattered among the French Riviera's sparkling beaches making this a ‘best of both worlds’ destination.

Food and wine are also a way of life in this area of France, with regional cuisines pairing perfectly with great local vintages and a splendour of restaurants, cafes and bistros you really will find yourself slipping into the ‘Joie de vivre’ in no time…
