And, as though in a dream, here you are in Provence
quite close to Saint Tropez
. With its boundaries marked by the Mediterranean to the south and the first peaks of the Alps to the north, Provence offers a wide variety of remarkable landscapes with spellbinding colours.
The land in Provence is generous and craftspeople have learned to make the most of its riches. While you are here on holiday you can explore the pottery of Salernes, the earthenware of Moustiers,
olive oil, Côtes de Provence wines, lavender from the Haut Pays, perfumes from Grasse
, delicate crystallised fruit from Apt
, the subtle lavender honey, tapenade of green olives and black olives… The Gulf of Saint Tropez
lies at the heart of this magnificent sun-drenched region, with the Maures chain
as a backdrop. This is a splendid massif where the peace and quiet of nature means that you can still enjoy unforgettable walks amongst chestnut trees and cork oaks.
