It’s no surprise so many people are drawn to the romantic southeast of France, with its endless days of sunshine. Provence is a land of vibrant colours and intoxicating fragrance, delicious flavours and living history. Wander amid olive groves and lofty perched villages, immersing yourself in the painter’s palette of Van Gogh and Cezanne. Indulge in private tastings of the best local wine, and learn the secrets of Provençal dishes from one of the region’s chefs. In Avignon, the region’s capital, visit the Pope’s Palace and the famous Pont d’Avignon, and wander the grounds of one of the world’s best-preserved amphitheatres in Nimes.
