Incredible landscapes, Roman ruins and gourmet foodThis corner of the South of France is a feast for the senses and has deservedly been a very popular holiday destination for decades. The landscape, painted by so many of the Old Masters (such as Gauguin, Matisse and Van Gogh) remains just as spectacular and in summer the lavender fields stretch into the horizon. Coastal cities overlook the azure Mediterranean, and inland, sleepy villages have quaint charming cobblestone streets. Outdoor markets are a highlight here: honey, cheese, herbs and seasonal fruit and vegetables are all beautifully displayed, and seafood is abundant. For the adventurous traveller, there are vineyards, mountains and bird-watching; for those who prefer to laze, many hotels have everything you need, such as swimming pools, beautiful gardens, and incredible food.
