Have you ever thought about visiting the Provence? Well you should! And this destination has it all: peaceful hills, amazing lavender fields and olive trees, low mountains, the exceptional calancas, fine sandy beaches, intimate coves, an appreciated gastronomy, ancient traditions and, of course, impressive towns, some of which are among the most beautiful in France.
Today in Hard Hobbit To Break We want to take a tour of some of the most charming villages in Provence. Of course, we have to apologize in advance for all those who have remained in the pipeline.
First of all, we want to talk about Gordes, which, hanging from a promontory, looks like a typical town of Postcard. You will love its cobbled alleys, its castle and, of course, its shady square. Located in the heart of the Luberon, it is the starting point for many visits, such as some surrounding mountain villages.
We also want to talk about L’Isle-sur-la-Sourge, known as the Venice of the County. It is a small and nice city located on the banks of the Sourge. Antique shops lining the canals stand out, along with the paddle wheels of the river.
Another town in Provence that is worth discovering is Roussillon, the town of ocher by excellence. And it is that their houses, very well cared for, are all made of this material. The central plaza deserves a special mention, which is decorated with flowers and surrounded by restaurants. In addition, we want to highlight its ocher cliffs.
It could not be missing from our list Les-Baux-de-Provence, a medieval village located in the middle of the road that crosses the hills of Les Alpilles. With its sights set on the Mediterranean Sea, this town is dominated by the ruins of his citadel. Of course, here you can find cobblestone alleys.
Nor could we forget Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, a place very dear to artists, something that is not surprising when you consider its boulevards surrounded by bananas, its shops, restaurants, cafes and alleys. The Plaza de la República deserves a special mention, which is very lively during market days.
Another place you should visit if you have the opportunity to travel to Provence is Cassis, which is located between Marseille and La Ciotat. Famous for its enchanting portIt is surrounded by an exceptional environment. And it is located between the famous calancas and the cliff of Cape Canaille.
We also want to talk about Vaison-la-Romaine, which has an important heritage Roman, as its name indicates. Also, it is important to note that it houses a beautiful medieval old town. We are referring to what is known as Ciudad Alta.
Nor could Uzès be on our list, the first duchy of France. It is a town with a rich heritage historical. Especially surprising is its castle, which mixes different styles: medieval, Renaissance, classic ... Of course, walking through its alleys and squares is already worth it. We also want to highlight the Plaza de las Hierbas, which houses beautiful houses with arcades.
At the top of a cliff that stands in the middle of a plain we find Bonnieux, which surprises with the Église Haute, also known as the vieille église, a church which was built right at the top.
Finally, we want to talk about Bormes-les-Mimosas, a hanging old town that overlooks the sea. We love its flower-filled alleys, as well as its beautiful squares and craft shops. The best month to visit is February, at the height of flowering of the mimosa. During that date the Gran Corso de la Mimosa festival is celebrated.
