The perfect road trip in France is incomplete without a visit to the South of France, where there is no shortage of picture-perfect scenery. Known for its luscious lavender fields, its delicious specialties and for having some of the most beautiful villages in France, Provence is a fool-proof step to discovering a piece of paradise.
L’Ile Sur La Sorgue
Famous for its medieval feel, L’ile Sur La Sorgue is surrounded by water running from the Sorgue River. The town hosts one of the biggest flea markets in France where vendors offer unique, one-of-a-kind merchandise and delicious fresh produce.
If you’re looking for a countryside getaway, look no further than the glorious red rocks of Roussillon. Take in the sights of one of the biggest ochre deposits in the world, or simply let yourself wander around the fresh & flamboyantly colored buildings.
Home to many well-known names and popular summer events, Gordes charms its visitors with its stone buildings and rich history. Stroll through the alleyways, and make sure to pay their 12th century castle –now a City Hall and Museum- a visit!
Holding itself true to the title of being one of the oldest villages in Provence, Venasque preserves its history and character through fascinating medieval architectures. Spend your time checking out churches built in the Middle Ages before settling down to enjoy some cherries & grapes, a region specialty!
For those who enjoys a bit of medieval and antique vibe, this 2,500 years old village is just up your alley. We love to watch glassblowing- a Biot specialty- in between exploring the many narrow streets and lanes nestled in the region.
