The French Riviera

In Southern France's quaint and picturesque Provence region, you'll quickly see how the area's beauty inspired both Van Gogh and Picasso to create some of the world's most famous paintings. Float in a hot air balloon over fields of bright sunflowers in this sunny expanse framed by the Alps and the Mediterranean coastline. Breathe in the delicate scent of lavender floating in the air right outside your chateau. Step back in time as you meander through the perched villages of Gordes and Bonnieux, dipping into stores or relaxing with a glass of rosé. Don't miss the essential experience of shopping the bustling open-air markets that abound with local products.

Destination Highlights

  • Oppède-le-Vieux

    A short drive away, this ancient village is worth a visit. The locals have painstakingly restored the 12th- to 17th-century buildings. Walk up the cobblestoned paths and get lunch under the large plane trees at Le Petit Café.

  • Lavender Route

    Provence is known for its fragrant lavender blossoms from early July to early August. Tour the beautiful lavender route from the Abbaye de Sénanque to the wide, purple swatch that spreads across the Drôme and the Vaucluse.

  • Outdoor Markets

    Get an authentic French experience by venturing out into Provence’s small villages and exploring the local markets. They pass from village to town each day of the week and are filled with fresh food, antiques, and more.



  • Forecasting Your Provence Vacation

    Each season brings its own charm, making Provence a popular year-round destination. Situated on the Mediterranean coast, the area has a dry Mediterranean climate, and although some parts are alpine, the Luberon valley has relatively mild weather no matter the season. Around mid-March, spring brings sunshine and warmth, and summertime heats up further, making Provence perfect for swimming and spending time outside.
