  • Welcome to Provence-Alps-Côte d'Azur

    Set just next to the shores of the Med, Provence is a land of exception, appreciated throughout the world for the beauty of its landscapes and inimitable lifestyle. Provence’s azure-blue skies, natural scenery, remarkable heritage, chirping cicadas, lavender fields and hilltop villages make it a holiday destination dreams are made of.

    Between the sea and mountains, the Mediterranean shores from Saint-Tropez to Menton, the hills of Provence and the Alpine Mercantour Massif, the Côte d’Azur offers a great diversity of landscapes. The beauty of its beaches and the splendour of its luxury hotels, the fame of its Festivals and the celebrity of its Artists create a lovely balance with the green forests and valleys of the mountain hinterland, the red-tile roofs of its age-old perched villages and the bright yellow of mimosas in bloom…

    The Mediterranean coast offers a plethora of stunning and infinitely varied sights. After exploring the beautiful “Calanques” fjords running from Marseille to Cassis, why not step inland to the Maures hills and their immense forests of oak and sweet chestnut trees. Heading East towards Fréjus, the fiery red rocks of the Esterel hills, offering spectacular views over the Med, are a must too.

    How about taking to the heights? Located just two hours inland from the Mediterranean, the sunny Southern Alps are a fabulous playground for outdoor lovers in both winter and summer. You will love exploring these wild and breathtaking landscapes, dotted with authentic old villages…
