Guide to Provence

Guide to Provence

Provence is a sun-drenched land of luminous light and varied scenery.

Its borders stretch from the turquoise Mediterranean seas and watery inlets of the Camargue to the rugged hills and gorges of Haute Provence. In between are vibrant lavender fields, groves of gnarled olive trees, scarlet poppy fields, Van Gogh sun flower scenes and countless castles and fortified hilltop Medieval villages of blue shuttered houses.

The light and the colour of these landscapes has for decades attracted the painters like Chagall, Matisse, Picasso, Renoir and Van Gogh. Cezanne made this his home. The diverse influences of Provence’s conquerers over the centuries have left a culture of people who are proud and passionate. Along with a strong Mediterranean temperament comes a timeless joy for enjoying life. Wonderful ingredients for a holiday in southern France!
