From towns to picturesque villages and everything in between, Provence has something for everyone. Swim in the crystal clear waters of the Calanque de Sormiou in Marseille. Drive up and down through the lavender fields of Valensole. Taste a bite of freshly baked fougasse, a Provençal classic. Admire the beautiful white Camargue horses that are native to the region. Located in the south of France, Provence is uniquely positioned to be a cultural melting pot of the Mediterranean. Roman monuments still dominate from the 1st century AD alongside castles from the medieval period - a varied heritage brightened by the native mimosas and cypresses.
