Villages of Provence
Gordes, Roussillon, Lacoste and Ménerbes, what do all those places have in common? Their natural charm, of course! The Luberon regional park is an absolute must see for those who want to see the picturesque Provence of postcards.
This chain of small mountains is well known for its olive oil. Once you get there, it is pretty obvious: olive trees everywhere! The Alpilles are a must see for other reasons; Les Baux de Provence, an outstanding medieval village and Saint Rémy de Provence, is a charming village with tiny streets, and numerous shops and art galleries.
Provence was the first Roman province beyond the Alps, and thus has many roman monuments. The Pont du Gard, a breathtaking 2000 year old aqueduct, the arenas of Arles and Nîmes, and the antique theater of Orange. These monuments are a wonderful addition to so many other hidden treasures!

Located by the sea, discover Les Saintes Maries de la Mer and its unique church, or Aigues Mortes, a charming walled city surrounded by salt deposits.
