Renowned for its abundant summers and pleasant winters, Provence is the epitome of southern France’s culture and beauty. Rolling lavender fields and green encrusted mountains are synonymous with the country’s alluring aesthetic. A visit here will ultimate in a reflection of sensual revival and personal discovery as the region is deeply rooted in ancient history that will encourage a deep and meaningful connection. It is clear to see how the region inspired the illustrious art of the world-renowned artists Vincent Van Gough and Paul Cézanne, whose works drew from the colours, ambience and energy of Provence.
Some of the earliest traces of human habitation can be seen on the Mediterranean coast of Provence, giving the region a feeling of an ancient human bond. Always an attractive capture of ancient kings of distant dynasties, in a unique event, its independence from the rest of France in the first half of the previous century has created an individual culture. As a result, choosing a retreat in Provence equates to choosing to engage in a local culture never experienced before. With an emphasis on the beauty of nature, retreats in Provence focus on opening up and embracing the electrifying energy of the surroundings and breathing in the heady perfumes of the budding flora.
