Haute Provence is one of the most beautiful regions in the South of France in terms of nature. Home to Europe's Grand Canyon - Les Gorges du Verdon, the Lac de Castillon, the Col de la Bonette, as well as countless hills and valleys. Whilst exploring this region you'll come across some of the most incredible lavender, sunflower and poppy fields you've ever seen, with snow-topped mountains in the background.


Surrounded by several other departments such as Alpes Maritimes, Var and Vaucluse, Haute Provence is full of small picturesque villages, all as beautiful as the next. The river Durance runs through this region, which makes for some gorgeous views and swimming opportunities. Famous for its fruit, cereals, honey, perfumes and essential oils, as well as black pudding and lavender honey, you'll be able to find everything that your heart desires. And don't forget, the film Les Miserables was also filmed here.
