Experience the French way of life

The Provence region is renowned for its quality of life: stunning landscapes, beautiful views, excellent food and wine, a mild climate, a rich historical and cultural heritage

The Provence area offers a lot to explore: historic cities such as Arles, Avignon, Nîmes, the Pont du Gard or the scenic beauties of the Camargue, the Luberon, the Gorges du Verdon or Montagne Sainte-Victoire.

The beaches and coves (“calanques”) of the Mediterranean coast are only half an hour away and offer scenic beauty rarely seen. Provence benefits from a Mediterranean climate characterized by a hot, dry summer, not much rain (less than 60 rainy days a year) and therefore a lot of sun. The climate is very pleasant: it’s summer until October, with temperatures between 25°C and 35°C. And then there is a very mild autumn which sometimes lasts until Christmas, with temperatures between 15°C and 25°C. Winters are also mild (usually between 5°C and 15°C) and the famous Provençal light is especially intense in January.
