Associated with scenic charm and the good life, Provence has always been the ultimate holiday destination or place to escape to for many British people. Its peaceful hills resound with the sound of the cicadas, its beautiful fields of olive trees and lavender and its fragrant scrubland, heady with the scents of thyme and rosemary, have drawn tourists to this region for years. Added to this are its secluded creeks, sandy beaches, rocky inlets and some of the best Roman and Greek ruins in France, so you can see why the area appeals to so many.
