So many things to do in Provence
Whether you have a particular fondness for food and wine and are questing for new tastes, whether you’re history enthusiasts fascinated by iconic monuments and archeological sites or simply seduced by the idea of strolling the streets of a small town in Provence at aperitif time or during a game of pétanque (bocce)… you would be absolutely right in believing Provence has a wide range of delights to offer and will more-than-tickle all of your senses.
The rich heritage of Provence
The year-long very distinctive sunlight, historical monuments such as the Sénanque Cistercian abbey or the Papal city of Avignon, the wine and varietals, markets selling local products and historical towns, medieval villages perched high up in the hills and mountains, the marvels of the Luberon and Roussillon, the ocher village, Bonnieux and Saignon as well as the picturesque fishing ports like Le Vallon des Auffes and Les Goudes where the restaurants serve the most delectable fare…
What do you see when hearing about Provence? The mountain of Sainte-Victoire and the famous Cezanne landscapes forever fixed in time on the little road of the Tholonet with its old mills? Do you think of the great vintage wines of the Vaucluse and the Var « Toulon » or do you visualize yourself ambling through the narrow streets of old Arles or bathing in the turquoise waters of the Verdon?
You can visit for just a few hours or explore the Provence heritage for a whole day but, whatever you do, the time you spend here will be very typical of the South of France !
