No other region of France stirs the imagination and stimulates the senses as strongly as Provence. The fragrant countryside with its wild herbs is scattered with historic fortified medieval towns to explore…

The Ideal Place for R&R

If all you want to do is relax, there can be few better places than the South of France, with its glorious weather, delicious food and fine wines.

Real Provence

For me, the delights of Provence are further west than the Cote d'Azur. The hilltop villages of the Luberon, the historic cities of Avignon and Arles and the attractive towns of Aix and St Remy with their legendary markets.

Coastal Provence

Visit the fabulous fjord-like "calanques" near Marseille and charming harbour towns like Bandol, Cassis and Sanary. Not forgetting the glamorous resorts along the Cote d'Azur such as Cannes, Nice and Juan les Pins.



The best time to visit Provence is in May, June or September when the climate is warm, but the number of visitors makes travelling around more relaxed.


Visit the lovely hilltop village of Le Castellet with fabulous views across the surrounding vineyards and the coast. Try some delicious fougasse from tiny takeaway Lou Mestre.
