Provence, perfect holiday destination throughout the whole year

One of the most famous touristic regions in France is "Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur", also abbreviated as PACA. This region stretches out over the coastline of the Camargue near Marseille to Menton, near the border with Italy. During most of the year the sun shines here and from early spring till late autumn the temperatures are very pleasant. The coast has several nature reserves with beautiful bays(calanques), sandy beaches and pebble beaches. Along the coast, at the Gulf of St. Tropez and further inland, there are many hiking trails. In the coastal region of Hyères there are palm trees, funnily enough most palm trees in Europe are also grown there. Off the coast there are beautiful islands, most are inhabited and can easily be reached by ferry services who provide day trips. From early spring to late autumn there is plenty to do and explore in the coastal region.

Inland Provence

Inland from the coast the region is also beautiful. The nature is unspoilt, there are large forest areas, fragrant lavender fields and mimosa bushes. This region, therefore, has major manufacturers and suppliers of perfume based there. Scattered throughout the landscape are typical Provencal villages with narrow streets and cozy terraces. Local products such as: wine, olives, lavender, fish, truffles, cheeses and chestnuts are also sold in the little picturesque shops.
