Best things to do in Provence

Nothing says a holiday in France like Provence. 

The region’s signature mix of inimitable flavours, fragrances, landscapes and light make it easy to see why it is revered by artists and fondly esteemed by locals and far-flung visitors alike. Among the olives, lavender, rosé and watercolours, it’s everything you’d expect the French art de vivre to be, and you’d almost expect a beret-sporting artist with a curly moustache to whip out his brushes to paint you as you bask in the sunshine outside a local café. 

Provence has space, sunshine and style by the bucketload. The accent is most definitely on outdoor living, and everything here is designed to facilitate it. 

What better way to experience it than staying at your very own Provencal cottage for a delightful parenthesis from your everyday life? Pack a hamper with a bottle of vino, a fresh crusty baguette and a pot of tapenade and head off to the hills or down to the beach to soak up the views and the sunshine and simply enjoy the moment.
