This is classic France, where life is relaxed, local wine is sipped in inviting street-corner cafes, stunning scenery abounds, and where despite its popularity, its charm has prevailed.
The historic Provence region has been enchanting visitors from across the globe for countless years, and it’s not hard to see why.
