about

Provence’s natural beauty endures as resiliently as its Post-Impressionistic artwork now featured in faraway galleries. Fields of purple lavender and vivid sunflowers have been splashed across many a canvas in an attempt to capture the region's natural beauty. Paul Cezanne was born in Provence and the region once inspired Van Gogh, Gaugin, Monet, Renoir, Matisse and Picasso. The port of Marseille is older than France itself and the city of Avignon was once the centre of Christendom. Wherever you go in the Languedoc-Roussillon region you will experience its fine cuisine and Languedoc is now one of the most important wine-producing regions in all of France. Since the 1970’s favourite tourist destinations include Palavas-les-Flots, Grau-du-Roi and Cap d'Agde. Visitors also come to experience the art and the history of the region with cities like Carcassonne and Béziers attracting many.
