We have already told you about the best hotels in Provence, now we are sharing our favorite places to visit if Provence is in your travel plans. It is a place where you will find small, historical villages with good restaurants that you can try. You will not be disappointed. See you in the South of France!
This small, medieval village is charming and seems to have been frozen in time. Wonderful restaurants await you here. One of our favourites, La Belle Etoile, is absolutely delicious. You can visit the old village and the new part of the city, which is full of good gourmet shops (the butcher, the cheese place, etc.). You can easily spend a full day there.
Very close by is the village of Crestet, which is overflowing with interesting places to discover. We loved the Chêne Bleu Vineyard, a luxurious place in the middle of nature where you can stop for lunch and taste local wines. The Huiles et Sens boutique, which is not too far away, is also unique and they allow you to make your own creams or body care products!
L’Occitane en Provence
Who does not know this French skincare line, created from natural ingredients? We love their face creams as well as the bath range, which you can find at many hotels in this region. You can have the chance to visit the factory, where all the products are created, and gain a better understanding of the manufacturing process. It is a beautiful way to immerse yourself in this beauty brand, a flagship of Provence.
A unique medieval village filled with breathtaking views, which will send you in back in time in the blink of an eye. Stop to read about the history of the village and learn about the life of the villagers. If you like castles, do not miss the Castle of Lourmarin, not far from the village, where you will really feel like you are walking in the footsteps of royalty as you enjoy many of the rooms that are still intact.
Hyères les Palmiers
We often think of Côte D’Azur, but not far from there is a pretty village filled with palm trees, where the weather is warm and the people are hospitable.Take a boat for a day trip to Porquerolles or walk around the city to take in the sites and history. Lovers of art should visit Villa Noailles, which is filled with unique pieces and hosts out of the ordinary exhibitions.
Chateauneuf du Pape
Visiting France also means that you will want to visit at least one vineyard. Chateauneuf du Pape is in the area and is a nice stop to add to your itinerary. Discover the village by foot, walking from wine shop to wine shop, and taste the wines of the region. Then, stop at a few vineyards to learn more about the wines and admire the scenery!
Why not finish your trip by stopping by Saint-Tropez, one of the most lively cities in the South of France. Stop for a coffee at Dior des Lices, the famous Dior café, and spend the night at the Hôtel de Paris, one of the most luxurious addresses in the city. Fans of Brigitte Bardot will be able to admire her statue in front of the hotel.
So, when are we leaving?
