Where to Stay in Provence
If its lavender fields you want, then some of the best are in the Luberon area, around the hilltop village of Sault and the iconic Abbaye de Senanque, Gordes, where the resident monks grow and harvest lavender. The Plateau of Valensole is the largest lavender field area in France, located between the Luberon and stunning Verdon where there is a Gorge, considered one of the most beautiful in Europe.
Provence is peppered with pretty villages where life revolves around the village square, lined with cafés and restaurants, shops and art galleries. From Menerbes to L’Isle-sur-la-Sorge, the antiques capital of Provence, Bonnieux and Saint-Remy-de-Provence, you’ll find a wonderful selection of villas to rent in the villages, the countryside and in elegant towns like Aix-en-Provence, Arles and Avignon.
Wherever you go in Provence, you’ll be inspired by the beautiful sights, as well as by the local cuisine and wines. The tastes and flavours you’ll discover are part of what makes your vacation in Provence so memorable. The olives, garlic, fresh herbs, jewel like cakes, rosé wines from legendary vineyards such as Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Bandol, markets where the scents, sights and sounds will stay with you forever. There’s nothing quite like cycling through the gorgeous countryside, stopping to enjoy lunch and a glass of chilled rosé in an authentic bistro en route. Or dining under the stars at a grand restaurant where the dishes are like works of art.
There are activities galore from water sports to hiking, cookery lessons, museums, wine tasting and rejuvenations spas – or simply relaxing and soaking up all that this area of southern France, with its light filled skies has to offer.
