Provence

Traveling in Provence

Because of its wonderful climate, Povence is one of the loveliest regions of France. Every year, around 35 million tourists flock there to lap up its Mediterranean landscapes, and to enjoy its fabulous food, bursting with sun-ripened flavours. They also come in search of the friendly, chilled-out Provencal lifestyle, that subtle mixture of gentleness and exuberance which was so well portrayed by film-maker and writer, Marcel Pagnol. Many other authors have helped make Provence famous, such as the writer Jean Giono, and the poet René Char. From the plains of the Rhône and the Durance to the foothills of the Alps, from the steep gorges of Verdon to the multicoloured Massifs of the Esterel, and from the forests of green oak to the Garrigue, Provence has always cast a subtle spell. The first Greek settlers made their home in Marseille around 600 BC and the popes chose the city of Avignon as their place of residence between 1309 and 1423. Songs of courtly love sung by twelfth century Provencal troubadours still echo through the olive groves in this blessed land, made sublime by the painters Cézanne and Van Gogh. Visit the Palais des Papes, one of the wonders of Avignon.
