Guide of Provence - Tourism, holidays & weekends in Provence

The ultimate holiday destination, Provence has always been associated with scenic charm and the good life. Its peaceful hills resounding with the song of the cicadas, its wonderful fields of lavender and olive trees, its scrubland fragrant with the scents of thyme and rosemary, its impressive Verdon canyon, its exceptional rocky inlets, its secluded creeks and its sandy beaches truly offer something to enchant every visitor.

This highly prized region has many attractions, and you can't talk about Provence without mentioning the magnificent hillside villages of Luberon, the old papal city of Avignon, Aix-en-Provence's old town, the Roman arenas in Arles, the famous Sainte-Victoire mountain immortalised by the painter Paul Cézanne, the small town of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, the Sisteron citadel or the pottery of the picturesque village of Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, to name but a few.

Also appreciated for its tasty food and ancestral traditions, Provence clearly offers everything a visitor could want, with its colourful markets and delicious specialities, such as olive oil, tian, Sisteron lamb, Banon cheese, Cavaillon melon, Aix calissons or Provence honey!
