Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur Tourism

This is the region a lot of people think about when they say the 'South of France'.


The popularity of Provence no doubt helped Peter Mayle with the sale of his books on Provence: 'A Year in Provence'; 'Toujours Provence'; 'Encore Provence'; and the novel - 'A Good Year' - which was made into a film directed by Ridley Scott.

The south-east corner of France has been a popular holiday resort since Lord Brougham made himself comfortable there in the 1830s. Numerous aristocrats, writers, artists and film celebrities have followed.

French Riviera

From busy beaches to time-stood-still villages in the nearby hills, some would say Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur is France at its glamorous best.
