Pride… In Provence, it’s definitely not a sin… and with good reason: surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea, the Alps and the Rhône, Provence is a region full of sunshine, mild temperatures and generous lands.
Many renowned personalities have been seduced by this region, not to mention artists like Van Gogh, Cézanne and Picasso. The visitor can walk in their footsteps in Aix-en- Provence, in Arles, or in the back country, taking a path of heritage from antiquity to modern times.
Olive oil, truffles, and prestigious wines such as Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Côtes du Rhone or Côtes de Provence are also treasures of the Region.
The sun shines on average 300 days a year here, reflected in the colourful and fragrant dishes of Provence: an authentic and multicultural cuisine. Crossroads of Europe and the Mediterranean, a mixture of genres is found in the Provençale cuisine with flavours of East and West marrying happily. White, rosé and red wines add to the conviviality, giving a taste of the sweetness of life that reigns here.
