From cities to quaint towns and everything in between, Provence has something for everyone. Swim in the crystal clear waters of the Calanque de Sormiou in Marseille. Drive with the top down through fields of lavender in Valensole. Experience a bite of just-out-of-the-oven fougasse, a ProvenÃ§al classic. Stand in awe of the beautiful, white Camargue horses native to the area. Located in the South of France, Provence is uniquely positioned to be a cultural blend of the Mediterranean. Roman landmarks still prevail from the 1st century AD alongside chÃ¢teaus from medieval timesâ€”a varied legacy brightened by the indigenous mimosas and cypresses.
Perhaps since the region is well-known for its ability to inspire, its home to a plethora of festivals such as Rencontre Arles, Festival Avignon, Festival dAix-en-Provence and more, all celebrating the arts. Artists who have praised the unique ProvenÃ§al light include Cazanne, Van Gogh, Matisse and Picasso. Alexandre Dumas and Jean Giono are among the writers who were drawn to write in the shade of the plane trees.
