Avignon Areas


Biarritz is one of the most elegant resorts on the South West coast. It offers three sandy beaches, balmy summers and a mild winter climate.



In the heart of lively Montpellier lies the Place de la Comedie with the famous Three Graces fountain, linked to the fascinating network of narrow streets and intimate squares of the mediaeval Old Town.


Aix-en-Provence is a handsome city and a good centre from which to explore the Luberon. Cezanne lived here and you can visit his studio.


Bordered by the River Rhone, Avignon is a sophisticated city with giant ramparts and an imposing mediaeval Papal Palace; only four arches remain of the famous bridge.


France's second largest city, Marseille is a lusty, cosmopolitan centre. The old harbour has a delightful market and bustles with cafes and restaurants. Founded by the Greeks, Marseille has become France's most important commercial port.


St Tropez

Made internationally famous in the 60's by Brigitte Bardot, St Tropez is often considered as the jewel of the Cote d'Azur, favoured by Matisse for its extraordinary light, climate, vinyards and sandy beaches.
