Provence

Acres of purple lavender fields, a rich medieval history, an impressive artistic legacy and scrumptious culinary experiences await in this southern region. 

Provence is a beautiful French region with rolling lavender fields, Roman remains, gorgeous Gothic architecture and plenty of adventures for nature lovers. Find hidden passageways in quaint villages, hike through protected national parks, taste local cheeses and savor Mediterranean-influenced dishes in atmospheric restaurants. 

Stroll down the charming streets of Avignon, a historic city on the banks of the Rhone River. Marvel at the spectacular Palais des Papas, theGothic Palace of the Popes, with stunning ceremonial rooms and a peaceful park overlooking the countryside. Among the most notable landmarks in town is the Pont d’Avignon, a UNESCO-listed bridge that provided the inspiration to the classic French school song, Sur le Pont d’Avignon.

Stop by the Camargue National Park to explore acres of untouched marshland and spot local bird species. Other appealing natural attractions include Gorges du Verdon, known for its crystal-clear waters and the vibrant red and orange rocks of the town of Roussillon.

Provence’s lavender fields are not to be missed. In late June and July, the lavender blooms with a brilliant shade of purple and gives off a distinctive floral scent. Plan a trip to Plateau de Valensole or the Abbaye Notre-Dame de Sénanque to photograph the fields in bloom.

Eating well in Provence is no great challenge. Sample wines from the renowned vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Papeand dine on fresh seafood dishes, such as bouillabaisse (fish stew) in the port city of Marseille. For a slow-paced daytrip, visit the small picturesque village of Gordes. Amble along winding streets, enjoy a long lunch and stick around to watch the sunset.

Provence's busiest season is during summer when the lavender blooms. Go in autumn for warm temperatures and low crowds.

Buses run infrequently between Provence’s smaller villages. Consider renting a car from the airport for efficient travel around the region. Renting a bike is another good option, as the region is crisscrossed by numerous scenic cycling routes.

Visit enchanting Provence to appreciate the beauty of the South of France and to explore the rich culture and history of the region.
