The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
The Cote d'azur stretches along the warmest coastline of France from Provence to the Italian border.
The beaches from pebble to fine sand are well maintained and some 'private' offer extra facilities, bars and restaurants for a whole days comfortable seaside lounging! Gastronomy is at its best catering for some of the most prestigious clients but offering many choices of restaurant all along the coast.
The bustling cities of Cannes and Nice contrast to the small and still authentic perched villages on the hilltops, and other smaller towns offer quiet corners with dotted villas and yet still most interesting town centres alive with artistic history and tradition.
Further north the terraced hillsides lead up into cooler parts and the Alps can be seen towering above. Hiking and walking as well as many watersports on the lakes will be amongst activities here away from the busier coasts.
Bouches-du-Rhône capital city is Marseille, culturally rich and influenced strongly by the Mediterranean climate. The region is known for its sandy beaches and cliff tops - perfect for walking holidays.
Inland the villages are overflowing with Roman and Gaulish history with ruins, fountains, Roman baths and monuments galore. The most famous of painters such as Paul Cezanne spent many years here, in love with the pinkish light that bathes everything with warmth, from the Mount Saint Victoire to the perched villages further north.
On the doorstep of the Luberon natural park, approx 7 km from the renowned golf course of Pont-Royal, within easy reach of La Roque-d’Anthéron with its piano festival and Abbaye de Silvacane.
Approximately 30 km from the fabulous city of Aix en Provence with its buzzing pavement cafés and cobbled streets lined with restaurants. 40 km from St Rémy de Provence.
With the Luberon as a backdrop and on the banks of the Durance river, the charming town of Charleval stands proudly in the foothills of the Chaine des Côtes. Charleval boasts a beautiful renaissance Château which overlooks the village. Enjoy the many hikes available in the area and take time to take in the views over the Luberon, the Alpilles and the Durance valley.
