Provence Attractions - Notre Provence Group

Provence Attractions Section contains the information about the most interesting sights of the region, both historical and contemporary ones.

In this catalogue of the main attractions of Provence we gathered basic background information and a description with photos.

Today Provence is part of the region of Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur (including the departments of Var, Vaucluse, Bouches-du-Rhône, as well as the part of the Alps de Haute Provence and Alpes-Maritimes).

This region of France owes its unprecedented popularity to the extraordinary geographical location (southern maritime colour meets and " interweaves" here with the regularity of plain widths and picturesque mountaintops of the Alps).

Discover the world of the artistic elite of the early twentieth century so adoring the local places. Look for the gastronomic delights on the local markets, "gormandize" with all your soul in the local cafes, find valuable and just nice "wonders" on the "flea markets" and antique rag fairs.

To understand Provence first having visited Côte d'Azur (slightly weary, effete and puffed) it is worth to go into the very Provencal "hinterland". At that do not forget here that between the basic destinations the guests Provence will find on local roads a lot of gastronomic "discoveries"! One has only to peep on the way into one of the small cheese dairies, wineries, breweries, etc.

Well, hit the road!
