Aix-en-Provence, Brignoles & Draguignan
This region is known for its impressive culture and architecture, but which, when coupled with stunning landscapes, delightful little villages, and the Mediterranean coast within easy driving distance, make the interior of Provence a delightful destination for a holiday.
One of this vast region's main cities is Aix-en-Provence. It is an extremely popular town to visit, rich in culture, architecture and history with guided tours throughout the year, even on Christmas Day! It is perfectly located with a view of the Mont St Victoire in the background, made famous by Cézanne in his many paintings of this mountain that rears up from its surrounding landscape.
Brignoles is a very large market town, known for its peaches, honey, olives and olive oil. Its medieval town and main square lined with cobble-stoned streets, make it the fantastic destination that it is.
Draguignan resembles a medieval village, full of museums and beautiful churches. It makes a great place to stroll around learning all about the history, and admiring the buildings surrounding you.
