One of the most popular areas of France for a holiday, the Provence Alpes in the South of France covers a large area from the Mediterranean sea to the French Alps.
With the kind of beauty found on postcards, Provence has almost a magical scenery. From the mountainous region in the north, where cyclists try their hand at cycling the tallest peak in the area, Mount Ventoux, to the glitzy beach resorts of the south and the stunning countryside in between. It really is a place that will take your breath away.
Don't miss Aix en Provence with its stunning cathedral, organic winery, a recreation of the town's famous son, Cezanne's studio, narrow streets and pretty squares which come alive with the sights and sounds of the market. Take a trip to the Camargue, with its famed white horses, pretty villages and abundance of wildlife and the Valensole Plateau with its mile upon mile of lavender fields.
Whether you want a relaxing beach holiday, something more adventurous or to take in the sights, Provence has something for everyone.
