Les Baux de Provence

Overlooking a rocky spur, the village of Les Baux-de-Provence boasts an incredibly rich architectural heritage. Its citadel overlooks natural landscapes of extraordinary beauty.

Come and explore one of France's most beautiful villages and its sites steeped in history.


The historic centre of this former papal city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

A veritable meeting place, the square is lined with café and restaurant terraces, and is always bustling with activity. The Place du Palais, further up the hill, is a vast esplanade where street performers put on a show in summer.


Arles, a Town of Art and History, is brimming with ancient remains. Famous for having been a major source of inspiration for Van Gogh's paintings, the city has left a lasting imprint on contemporary art, as witnessed by the Vincent Van Gogh Foundation. Once the provincial capital of ancient Rome, Arles is also renowned for its many ruined sites from that era, including the impressive Arles amphitheatre.


A magnificent hilltop village in the heart of the Luberon, Gordes lies on the edge of the Luberon Regional Nature Park, in the heart of the Monts de Vaucluse. It is the perfect embodiment of the charm of Provençal hilltop villages. Described, photographed and admired a thousand times over, Gordes owes its fame to the illustrious artists who discovered it and left a cultural imprint that is still vibrant today.


The city of Nîmes was remarkably shaped around and from its Roman monuments. This ancient architecture, present throughout the centuries, has forged the identity, personality and uniqueness of the city, giving it exceptional universal value. Nîmes embodies the very image of the Roman city par excellence.

The Camargue

The Camargue, a vast wetland area nestling in the Rhône delta, is a truly remarkable region. It stands out for its exceptional biodiversity, diverse flora and fauna, varied landscapes, and the grandeur and history of the Provençal culture that resides there. Emerging from the ancestral struggle between the Rhône and the Mediterranean Sea, the Camargue ranks as one of the most biologically rich regions in Western Europe.

L'Isle sur la Sorgue

Known as the "Venice of Comtadine", L'Isle sur la Sorgue is one of the most attractive destinations in the PACA region, thanks to its exceptional living environment. This appeal is closely linked to the presence of the Sorgue, a river whose source never runs dry, creating a unique atmosphere where time seems suspended, almost miraculous.


Uzès is nestled in a triangle formed by the towns of Nîmes, Alès and Avignon. This discreet but elegant town has preserved many vestiges of its glorious past. Surrounded by the Boulevard Gambetta, the medieval town is a maze of narrow streets and shady squares, lined with 17th and 18th century town houses.


Aigues-Mortes is a French commune in the Petite Camargue, located at the southern tip of the Gard département in the Occitanie region.

The town is famous for its ramparts and its arena, known as the Plan des Théâtres, for Camargue races, and is also infamous for the massacre of Italians in August 1893. 


A Mediterranean city, with the pleasures of shopping, its heritage, the pleasure of a terrace overlooking the Mediterranean, and its architectural beauties. Marseille with the Vieux Port, the lungs of Marseille. In the 18th century, the Old Port was at its peak: ships, quays crowded with merchandise, carpenters, sailors, shipowners, convicts from the Arsenal... Fort Saint-Nicolas and Fort Saint-Jean, which protected the entrance to the port and kept watch over the people of Marseille. There are also the islands, les Goudes, and so many things to discover with a southern flavour.


In the heart of the Alpilles Regional Nature Park, the village of Fontvieille awaits you, nestling in the hollow of its white stone quarries. With its authentic Provencal village character, Fontvieille will charm you with its ancient treasures, witness to ancestral know-how. The magnificent landscapes of Alphonse Daudet's gentle, fragrant hills are perfect for walks and hikes.
