Why Provence?

Relaxed atmosphere, great cultural heritage and lavander honey

  • Provence it's home to Europe's deepest canyon, oldest road and highest pass, and then there's the Mediterranean itself, a bright mirror of blue reflecting back craggy cliffs, white beaches and endless skies. 
  • Provence itself is a work of art and has been featured in paintings by artists such as Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cezanne, Matisse and Picasso.  
  • Rhone-Alps region is the largest producer of honey in France.
    The most typical honey of Provence is lavender honey, which is very fragrant, cream-colored and presents a very fine grit.
  • Sand wine cellar is a special wine cellar in Provence, of which soils in the vineyards are composed of sand carried in from the Alps by Rhone river, the wind and Mediterranean tides. This makes a unique environment for wine with hundred year old history.
  • Camargue is a vast wetland of approximately 100,000 hectares, the largest in France and also one of the most secret. Camargue is classified as UNESCO world haritage.
