Follow their footsteps through the forested region of Le Luberon and its scenic mountain villages, along with the historic monuments of Arles. Warning: do not view the photos of their sumptuous meals and delicious desserts on an empty stomach.
Aix-en-Provence: its very name conjures images of idyllic days with dazzling light illuminating the verdant countryside’s sloping vineyards and lush olive groves. The wonderful scenery of the region enraptured Cezanne, Changall, and van Gogh. Writers have flocked here and extolled it as the Great Land of Inspiration for all that is French and Fabulous.
