PROVENCE is probably one of the most renowned regions of France (along with Périgord). This sun drenched land stretches from the foothills of the Alps to the mouth of the Rhône and the Mediterranean to the South.
The Provencal heritage is displayed everywhere from the typical lavender fields to the nestled villages of the hinterland. A rich heritage ranges from Roman in Arles, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, Vaison-la-Romaine to Romanesque in the Abbeys of Sénanque and Silvacane. However, some of France’s most thriving cities can be found in Provence: Aix-en-Provence, Arles, Avignon or Nîmes, without forgetting the always surprising Marseille, now the third biggest city of France.
Provencal gastronomy has become world famous and popular with its bouillabaisse (a fish stew), pissaladière, lemon tart, wine and herbs.
