​HIGHLIGHTS​

 

Arles, World Heritage Site

Although Van Gogh who put this city on the map, we mustn’t forget that it was the Romans who turned it into one of their crown jewels many centuries ago.

Arles is also the capital of good living, and the only city in France with three controlled denominations of origin: La Camargue rice, olive oil and beef.

Markets, artisans and antiques shops

The food markets are one of the region’s most charming attractions. Almost every city and town has one where you can take in the ambiance, colour and fresh products.

The antique shops also deserve a special mention. Antique dealers from all over Europe come to this region in search of that special Provence piece to delight the best decorators in the world.

Routes for every taste

After seeing the main cities, you can’t leave Provence without looking for a special trail that appeals to you. Thanks to the diverse landscapes and the charm of the towns and scenery, there are infinite possibilities.

We recommend renting a car and taking some of the most traditional routes, like the various options offered by the fields of lavender. This plant blooms between June and July, and as late as August in some areas.
