Luxury Travel to
Provence made for you
From lavender fields and vineyards to beautiful port towns
Provence offers a rich and diverse landscape, from endless lavender fields to bountiful vineyards, rocky hilltop villages and dazzling coastline. With stunning port towns, major landmarks and rich countryside, Provence is a popular destination in France that very much epitomizes the Mediterranean dream.
The region enjoys a delightful Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers, mild winters, and an infamous wind called Le Mistral which particularly affects the Var and Bouches-du-Rhône departments during winter and spring. This southeastern province of France stretches from the Italian border on the east, to the Rhône River on the west. Marseille is the capital of Provence, the Cote D’Azur is situated to the east hugging the Italian border, and Avignon sits inland.
Avignon, the historical capital of the Vaucluse region, has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its medieval architecture and Roman ruins. The Palais des Papes, dominating the Avignon cityscape, is today one of the most important medieval gothic sites in Europe. The abandoned Pont d’Avignon, dating back to the 12th century, is equally as interesting. Today, Avignon annually hosts many significant art and theatre festivals.
Outside of Avignon, the Roman Pont du Gard, an ancient Roman aqueduct bridge which is also listed by UNESCO, is an impressive sight and well worth a visit.
Take a tour of a Provençal truffle plantation and go on a hunt for France’s elusive ‘black gold’.

When to visit
Summer in Provence is a wonderful season. If you visit slightly early, in March and April, you might not get beach weather, but you will find the temperatures ideal for cultural sightseeing and exploring the region. From the end of June to August is when the lavender fields burst into deep blues and purples – definitely worth the putting up with the warmer weather. Besides, you might want to head south to the beaches on the Riviera while you’re in the area.
