France simply has so much to offer. From one idyllic spot to another, via the must-see destinations, you certainly won't be disappointed. The sun shines pretty much all the time in this part of the country and time almost feels suspended.
Everywhere you look in the South of France, you’ll find breathtaking landscapes. From the majestic mountains of the Pyrenees to the vast lavender plains of Provence and the rolling vineyards of the Languedoc-Roussillon, no one can fail to be impressed. In the south-west, admire the endless beaches of the Atlantic Ocean and the Basque Country, and take a trip to Cap Ferret. Then head for the majestic pine forests of the Landes, the “green lung” of this region that is also stunning to look at. In the south-east, gaze in awe at the magnificent scenery of Provence as the cicadas serenade you, go hiking on the famed Mont Ventoux, or bask on the beaches of the Mediterranean coast.
The South of France is paradise if you love outdoor pursuits. The sportiest among you will be delighted to learn that there are countless stunning locations for hiking. Set off on a walk to the famous Gorges du Verdon, where’ll you be rewarded with some spectacular panoramas. Or if you're the type that goes on holiday to relax, you can head straight for the Côte d’Azur, where the sandy beaches and turquoise waters have their own special allure.
Feeling peckish? There’s also plenty to discover when it comes to the local cuisine in this foodies’ paradise! To the east of France, your menu will include a delicious pistou soup with basil straight from Provence, accompanied by the traditional Tielle Sétoise (a kind of pie). For your main course, we recommend a mouthwatering bouillabaisse and a portion of ratatouille, a summer dish typical of the South of France. And now it's time for dessert! Try the amazing calissons from Aix-en-Provence, little sweets made from almond, melon and candied oranges. And if you have a particularly sweet tooth, be sure to taste a delicious slice of Tarte Tropézienne.
The food in the west is just as tasty! Start your culinary escapade with a slice of the famous Bayonne ham or an excellent duck foie gras, two distinctive specialities of the south-west. For your main course, we have two recommendations: opt for a traditional Cassoulet de Castelnaudary or a delicious duck breast, served with potatoes. Still have room for dessert? Perfect! Take your pick from these yummy afters: the delicious Basque cake, the luscious macaroons of Saint-Émilion or the traditional Bordeaux cannelé pastries. A tantalising treat for your tastebuds!
As for sightseeing and heritage, the region harbours some gorgeous towns that you’ll be keen to visit. Head for Nice, the jewel of the Côte d’Azur, famous for its Promenade des Anglais and the colourful Old Nice. Then set off for Aix-en-Provence, the home of artists and writers, a city brimming with elegance and refinement. Its Provençal style architecture, shaded squares and pretty fountains lend it an aura of charm and tranquillity.
And there are plenty of other unique and historic towns to choose from. Journey back in time in Carcassonne, a fortified medieval town that looks like something straight out of a fairy tale, with its imposing citadel and impressive ramparts. Continuing your way in the west of France, head up to Bordeaux, a majestic city listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
