Provence is a region of south eastern France on the Mediterranean adjacent to Italy. The Romans made the region into the first Roman province beyond the Alps, their Provincia Romana, the origin of its present name.
A world-renowned tourist destination, and the most visited area in France, Provence lives up to its reputation. With the Rhone to the West, the Mediterranean to the South and the Olive groves stretching North, Provence is literally ensconced in beauty. Provence is home to beaches, farms, vineyards, ruins, castles and seemingly endless fields of flowers.
The atmosphere created by lavender fields, vineyards and orchards groves makes this one of the most amazing regions in France. Provence attracted many artists such as Césanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin and Monet who went there to get inspired by the lanscapes.
