France - Provence & the Cote d’Azur
Van Gogh, Matisse and Picasso captured the colours of Provence, but it will capture you with its perfect blend of charm, romance, history, sunshine and a lifestyle to envy or emulate!
There’s impressive Roman heritage to be found in Arles, Nimes and Avignon, vibrant works of art by legendary artists and the homes of Cezanne and Renoir in Mt Victoria and Cagnes. The beautiful beaches of the Cote d’Azur are also home to the luxury yachts, shops and villas of the rich and famous.
Lose yourself in Provence’s “villages perches” like St Paul de Vence or Les Baux de Provence, each hilltop town more gorgeous than the last ! Make a meal or picnic with wonderful market goodies and taste distinctive Provencal pistou, ratatouille or bouillabaisse, with Provencal rose or classic wines from Cotes du Rhone of course!
Walk, cycle or drive country routes lined with lavender, vines, pines and poppies village to village, stay in your own villa or experience Provence by boat or penichette on the Canal du Midi. Magnifique!
