Herbes de Provence - the taste of Provence
The Colours of Provence
With an average of 300 days of sunshine each year, you are almost guaranteed sunshine
during your stay in Provence.
Beaches on the French Riviera are almost empty, except in the month of August when the
French are "en vacances".
The lavender fields are so characteristic of Provence. You will find lavender everywhere -
in the markets, in gardens and in fields
Sandy beaches on the French Riviera, blue seas and rocky shorelines grace this
southern coast of France.
The food in Provence is wide ranging - from fresh fish on the southern coast - to the
mountain cookery as you reach the borders with Switzerland and Italy. Why not book a
cooking vacation in Provence to try it for yourself?
