Visit Provence, the perfect add-on to a Paris vacation.
Provence is a lot like Southern California, if you added old Roman roads and darling rocky hilltop villages to the mix. Topanga Canyon is wonderful, but it isn’t Arles. Visit Provence with us!
France has a designation for its small towns of “charm and character”: Les Plus Beaux Villages de France or the most beautiful villages of France. The region has an awful lot of them. Among them are Gordes, Menherbes and most of towns in the Luberon region.
And how do you feel about food? You are in France so we assume “feed me well” is your mantra. The region will gladly load you up with truffles, pizza (yes, pizza), olives, goat cheese, rose wine and Rhone wine, olive oil, lamb sausage and pasta. There is more than a touch of Tuscany here. The bigger towns are Avignon (famous for being the seat of the Pope for 100 years), Aix (a slice of Paris) and Arles (the story of Van Gogh). You should see all three, and you can, over just a couple of days.
And don’t forget the lavender fields, in their prime throughout July and August. Suffice to say if you think anyone has exaggerated about how great their visit to Provence was, they weren’t. It’s that special. Life slows down here, and let’s face it almost all of us could benefit from it.
Provence is our favorite part of France. Reach out so we can help you plan the perfect Provence vacation.
