If you’re in France, you can’t miss the Provence region. There you will find the perfect balance between charm, beauty and tranquility. Located in the southeast of the country, this Mediterranean wonder has all the elements to make a visitor fall in love. From the Alps to the South and the Camargue Valleys, to the spectacular fields of lavender and olive trees; to the low mountains where thyme and rosemary flourish. As well as other attractions such as the impressive Verdon Canyon, the peculiar calanques, the intimate coves or the fine sand beaches.
There are many reasons why Provence attracts so many tourists. The incomparable hanging villages of Luberon, the old city of Aix-en-Provence, the old city of the Popes of Avignon, the old sands of Arles, the small town of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence or the famous ceramics of the picturesque village of Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, paint a picture postcard landscape that will undoubtedly leave an unforgettable mark on your memory.
The greatest treasure of this region is the human quality and the hospitality of its people, which you will appreciate first hand through its rich gastronomy and its ancestral traditions. Dare to visit the different markets full of colour and let yourself fall in love with their specialities, such as Banon cheese, olive oil, almond cakes from Aix, lamb from Sisteron or honey from Provence.
Of all the exceptional tourist destinations you can find in Europe, the French Riviera is undoubtedly among the most privileged. Located between the Alps, the border with Italy and the Mediterranean Sea, the so-called Côte d’Azur enjoys a warm, summery climate all year round, making it a benchmark for international tourism with countless places to discover and explore.
In this paradisiacal area, dreamy landscapes are mixed for those who love exploration and relaxation; with the luxury, elegance and sophistication of world famous centres such as Cannes, Nice, Monaco or Saint-Tropez. During your stay on the Côte d’Azur you can visit picturesque villages such as Èze and Bormes-les-Mimosas, as well as beach towns such as Juan-les-Pins and Hyères bathed by the Mediterranean, where you will enjoy hidden coves and beautiful beaches that will fill your memory with landscapes of incomparable beauty.
The gastronomy and its people are part of the attractions of the French Riviera. Fall in love with typical dishes such as the little stuffed ones from Nice, the socca or the pistou soup, while you travel with delight to the site of the famous international festival or the Monte Carlo Rally to experience glamour and elegance.
