Provence is the crowning glory of France, with the best weather, stunning landscapes, and hundreds of miles of Mediterranean coastline. But if you are not a local you might need a hand picking the right base and itineraries. That’s where Go To Provence! steps in.
We’ve unpacked the whole of Provence into delightful bite-size chunks so you can quickly find your perfect spot, whatever your interests.
Provence caters to so many tastes: lazing on the beach, mixing with the jet set, exploring the inland lavender and wineries, hopping from sleepy hill-top villages to cities buzzing with life and culture. You could do all these things in a day or just do one for a month.
Which Provence are you interested in – the glamour of the Cote d’Azur, the calmer Cote Bleue, ski resorts or olive orchards, lavender and hill-top villages or the wild call of the Camargue? Go To Provence shows you where to go in Provence.
Bouches du Rhone – urban chic
French Riviera – glamour, yachts and bling
The French Riviera (a.k.a. Cote d’Azur) is where millionaires head to in summer, from Monte Carlo to Cannes to St Tropez all along the beautiful coast where it seems to be permanently sunny. Of course you don’t have to have your own yacht to join the fun, there is a Riviera vacation to fit every budget.
From Marseille to St Tropez
Heading west from St Tropez you get to a calmer coastline where the resorts are less glitzy and you don’t need a fistful of credit cards. There are lovely little beaches and coves near Le Lavandou, charming fishing villages like Cassis and Sanary sur Mer, the fabulous wine of Bandol, and the beautiful Porquerolles and the other islands of Hyeres.
The Luberon is for those who dream of spectacular countryside of vineyards and orchards, fascinating “perched” hill-top villages, outstanding natural produce, and the light of Van Gogh and Cezanne.
