From the moment you arrive in the Vaucluse, the magic of Provence casts its spell. Walking or cycling explore the ochre of Luberon, the lavender fields, the Mont Ventoux, the vineyards and the Camargue. Those same landscapes and colors inspired many artists who celebrated it all in their works, such as Cézanne in Aix-en-Provence, Van Gogh in Arles, Chagall and the writer Giono.
The architectural and historical heritage of Provence is also extraordinary. The Popes' Palace in Avignon is the biggest medieval fortifiedcastle in Europe. Orange, Arles, the Pont du Gard aqueduct, all are listed as World Heritage Sitesby Unesco.
Many world renowned festivals, Avignon, Aix en Provence, Orange, La Roque d’Anthéron, enliven the cultural life of southern France. And when you have quenched your thirst for exploring and sightseeing, take the time to relax and enjoy a gourmet meal and the remarkable wines of the southern Côtes du Rhône region.
