Widely considered the most beautiful corner of France, Provence stretches all the way from Arles and Avignon to the Italian border, anchored by the Mediterranean Sea. The region’s natural beauty, abundant sunshine, warm climate, local wines, pretty beaches, farm-to-table dining, 873 picturesque villages topped with ruins, market towns and medieval walled cities all go into the mix that makes Provence irresistible to both the French and to visitors from outside her borders. Fields of lavender, rolling mountains of greenery and a sparkling Mediterranean backdrop-this is Provence, France. Aside from its postcard worthy scenery, Provence is a desired destination for wine lovers, most recognized for its rosé and white wines.
