Land of the sun, where the mistral blows, irrigated by the Rhône, bathed by the Mediterranean, between its brilliant white cliffs plunging into the sea, and its perched villages hidden in the shade of olive trees, filled with the song of cicadas, the smell of grapevines, lavender and thyme, Provence holds irresistible attraction. From ancient times, when Phocaean Greeks settled on its shores, to those of Pagnol’s novels, Provence has seen the building of Roman arches and theatres, the praying of monks in their abbeys, the reign of popes, and the meeting of Petrarch and Laura’s destinies. A land of light, exalted by Van Gogh and Cézanne, Provence has retained the charm of life sung by poets from Mistral to Daudet.
