Amongst the most touristic regions of FranceProvence fulfils all our wishes. This South-Eastern region of France has so much to offer as it is situated between the mountains, the sea and the hinterland.

This is because this genuine region offers so much charm: its gentle way of life, its people who welcome you with their lilting accent, its characteristic villages perched on top of stone hills, its exciting markets, its colourful countryside with vineyards and culture, situated between the sea and the mountains… An invitation for a change of scenery and to relax!

The advantageous geographical position of Provence makes it a destination for varied activities! Just a couple of steps away from the beautiful beaches of the South of France, you can also benefit from the joys of the mountains, the Alps of Haute-Provence where there is opprotunities for trekking or outings in the heart of the luxurious countryside. Surrounded by scenery which is wild and natural why not be tempted with paragliding, with rafting or with flying a microlight plane?

Those who prefer to have their feet on firm ground can embark upon a journey of emotions. There are plenty of ideas for visits, including the Lavender Museum at Coustellet in the Chateau of Barben, which is reached by passing through the beautiful villages of Gordes or Lourmarin.

A holiday in this colourful region will also give you the opportunity to learn more about the manufacture of olive oil from a local producer, to taste all sorts of wine from a local estate and to discover the secrets of growing organic fruits and vegetables. In short, a truly amazing discovery of the treasures of nature!
