Images That Will Make You Want To Visit Amazing Provence


Welcome to Beautiful Provence

In my dreams I own an apartment in Paris and a house in Provence.  It is such a beautiful region.  Here are a few images to get your travel juices flowing.

There are thousands upon thousands of charming streets and homes in the region.  Just being around them is healing.  This one is in the village of Vence.

I know, I know.  It’s Provence.  Marseilles. The Mediterranean.  So yes, this should be a picture of a fish dish, but food in Provence is so much more than that!  Fig or raisin bread anyone?

Lavender is everywhere in the region, but to see fields look like this best to be there in June or July.

These ocean “valleys” are known as calanques and they are exactly as breathtaking and beautiful as they look in the above photo.

We offer several options to tour Provence from Paris.  We’d love to help you arrange a tour!
