More on Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur

Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur consists of six departments; Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, Alpes-Maritimes, Bouches-du-Rhône, Hautes-Alpes, Vaucluse and Var.

The area is largely famed for the Côte d’Azur (French Riviera), which has long been a haunt of the rich and famous, offering countless beach resorts with blue waters and beautiful stretches of sand. Nice, Cannes, Monaco and St Tropez are all glamorous destinations linked with stars from music, movies and motor racing.

Of course, the region’s annual Cannes Film Festival is a world-famous event in the region, as well as Nice’s Carnival, one of the world’s major carnival events held each year in February.

But you don’t have to be a household name to fall for the sun drenched charms of this beautiful stretch of coast. Sun worshippers, culture vultures, foodies and families all flock to the region safe in the knowledge that there is plenty to see, do and discover.

Provence is an area of ever-changing contrast, colour and character; never failing to amaze and enchant. From the heavenly scented lavender fields to the snow topped Alpine peaks and golden sands of the Côte d’Azur, Provence offers a never-ending variety of natural beauty.

Wander through the winding streets of any of the medieval towns that pepper Provence and before you know it, you’ll feel like a local. Enjoy a local wine in a sidewalk bar…join in a game of pétanque…indulge in a long lunch in the shade of a village square…taste before you buy in a bustling market selling fresh local produce.

The region’s port capital of Marseille (and France’s second largest city) is a hugely popular tourist destination, rich with more than 1,500 years of history and scattered with some fantastic attractions.

This concrete jungle offers a fantastic plethora of activities as well as a historic old port, sandy beaches, and impressive fortresses. Visitors here can also explore the nearby Frioul archipelago, a group of four islands located off the Mediterranean Coast around four kilometres from the capital city.
