Where to Stay in Provence

If its lavender fields you want, then some of the best are in the Luberon area. Head to the hilltop village of Sault, surrounded by lavender, and the iconic Abbaye de Senanque, Gordes, where the resident monks grow and harvest lavender. The Plateau of Valensole is the largest lavender field area in France. Located between the Luberon and stunning Verdon where there is a Gorge, considered one of the most beautiful in Europe.

Provence is peppered with pretty villages where life revolves around the village square, lined with cafés and restaurants, shops and art galleries. From Menerbes to L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, the antiques capital of Provence, Bonnieux and Saint-Remy-de-Provence, you’ll find a wonderful selection of villas to rent. And on the French Riviera, seaside homes and elegant coastal towns make for a fabulous holiday for family, friends and couples. There are also secret pockets of Provence like the Village of Ste Anastasie sur Issole near lovely Toulon.

Whether your choice is to be in a village, the countryside or in an elegant town like Aix-en-Provence, Arles and Avignon, there’s loads to suit.
