Fabulous and Famous
The loveliest region of France – for its fields of sunflowers and lavender, its Renaissance and Medieval towns, its outdoor cafes and village markets, its vineyards and its winsome wines, its plane-tree lined avenues, its perfect olive oil, its local honey, not to mention tapenade, truffles, and other culinary treats. Loved for its hills and trails, its natural beauty, its history and culture – for luring visitors to Avignon, the Medieval Pope’s city, the Pont du Gard, built by the Romans 2000 years ago, as was the Maison Carré and the Arena at Nimes; for the views of famous painters like Cezanne and Van Gogh, for the many museums and cultural events, and so much more too numerous to count.
The glorious coastline, one of the most famous in the world, and notably the captivating calanques around Marseille and the Carmargue around the mouth of the Rhone have attracted artists and poets for centuries. The mountains, ranging from the low Alpilles around St.Remy de Provence and Les Baux-de-Provence, to Mont.St.Victoire overlooking the Luberon and to the higher elevations further inland have forever been appreciated for their splendid landscapes and their Medieval hilltop villages.
See and experience thousands of years of history, encompassed in sublime landscapes and enjoyed with incomparably sensual food and wines.
