Vacation in Provence

The brightest diamonds in the Provence crown are perhaps the triple-A cluster of Aix, Avignon and Arles. Aix-en-Provence perfectly captures the region’s simple sophistication and romance, with its tree-line streets and culinary culture. Medieval Avignon boasts the gothic wonder of Palais de Papes while Arles is steeped in Roman history and a wonderfully relaxed, sun-soaked ambience.

There is a little more glamour to be found in Saint-Tropez, although the town still retains ties to its traditional roots, particularly in the mazed streets La Ponche and markets of Place Aux Herbes, Halle aux Poisson and the town’s main square, the Place des Lices, where elderly men play pétanque on Sunday mornings.

Throughout the region a wealth of archeological wonders have been uncovered, especially in the town of Orange in the Haut-Vaucluse region. Here you will discover the 1st-century Roman Théâtre Antique, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Emperor Tiberius’ Arc de Triomphe and the ruins of the Hémicycle temple. Many more ancient treasures can be found in Vaison-la-Romaine nearby.

Across Provence there are dozens of picturesque villages to explore. The perched hill-top towns of Saint-Paul de Vence, Vence and Gordes abound with charm while places like Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, Grasse and Cassis promise idyllic access to paintings, perfumes and some of Provence’s finest food and drink.
