Provence is a region with a strong reputation as a place where life means sitting back and relaxing by the pool or the sea, and enjoying the good life in the beneath an azure sky. Whether it's for a year in Provence or just a week, this is one of the French regions that people from the north love to escape to. France's most truly Mediterranean region is a land of bright blue skies, even in winter, of olive trees, pastis, vineyards, wild rosemary and the scent of pine trees. But the region also spreads right up to the Italian border, through the dry ravined hills of the Mediterranean hinterland and the Provencal Alps. On the coast, known as the "Cote d'Azur" to the French, and the "French Riviera" to English-speakers, rocky shores give way here and there to some of the world's most famous beaches, at Cannes, Nice or Saint Tropez. Naturally, in summer the French Riviera is a very busy region, yet at other times of the year - away from the cities of Marseille, Toulon and Nice, it is less so.
There is a common belief that "Provence" means all of Mediterranean France; it does not. West of the Rhone delta, the area is known as Languedoc.
The official Provence region only includes the departments of Bouches du Rhone, Var, Vaucluse, Alpes Maritimes & Alpes de Haute Provence  

Driving times:
from Calais or Lille: 9 to 12 hours under normal driving conditions, depending on destination.
Main airports: Marseilles, Nice
