The most beautiful villages in Provence

Provence
Have you ever thought about visiting Provence ? Well you should! And this destination has it all: peaceful hills, fields of lavender and amazing olive trees, low mountains, the exceptional calancas, fine sandy beaches, intimate coves, an appreciated gastronomy, ancestral traditions and, of course, impressive towns, some of which are among the most beautiful in France.

Today at Vuela Viajes we want to take a tour of some of the most charming towns in Provence. Of course, we have to apologize in advance for all those who have been left in the pipeline.

Gordes

Gordes
First of all, we want to talk about Gordes, which, perched on a promontory, looks like a typical postcard town. You will love its cobbled streets, its castle and, of course, its shady square. Located in the heart of the Luberon, it is the starting point for many visits, such as some of the surrounding mountain villages.

L’Isle-sur-La-Sorgue

Isle-sur-la-Sorgue
We also want to talk about L’Isle-sur-la-Sourge, known as the Venice of the County. It is a nice little town on the banks of the Sourge. The antique shops lining the canals, as well as the paddlewheels of the river, are striking.

Roussillon

Roussillon
Another town in Provence worth discovering is Roussillon, the ocher town par excellence. And it is that their houses, very well cared for, are all made of this material. Special mention should be made of the central square, which is decorated with flowers and surrounded by restaurants. In addition, we want to highlight its ocher cliffs.

Les-Baux-de-Provence

Les-Baux-de-Provence
Les-Baux-de-Provence could not be missing from our list, a medieval village located in the middle of the road that crosses the hills of Les Alpilles. With its eyes set on the Mediterranean Sea, this town is dominated by the ruins of its citadel. Of course, here you can find cobbled streets.

Saint-Rémy-de-Provence

Saint-Remy-de-Provence
Nor could we forget Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, a place much loved by artists, something that is not surprising if we take into account its boulevards surrounded by plane trees, its shops, restaurants, cafes and alleys. Special mention should be made of the Plaza de la República, which is very lively on market days.

Cassis

Cassis
Another place you should visit if you have the opportunity to travel to Provence is Cassis, which is located between Marseille and La Ciotat. Famous for its charming harbor , it is surrounded by exceptional surroundings. And it is located between the famous calancas and the cliff of Cape Canaille.

Vaison-la-Romaine

Vaison-la-Romaine
We also want to talk about Vaison-la-Romaine, which has an important Roman heritage, as its name suggests. In addition, it is important that you keep in mind that it houses a beautiful medieval old city. We are referring to the so-called Upper Town.

Uzès

Uzes
Nor could Uzès, the first duchy of France, be missing from our list. It is a town with a rich historical heritage . Above all, its castle is surprising, which mixes different styles: medieval, Renaissance, classic … Of course, strolling through its alleys and squares is already worth it. We also want to highlight the Plaza de las Hierbas, which houses beautiful houses with arcades.

Bonnieux

Bonnieux
At the top of a cliff that stands in the middle of a plain we find Bonnieux, which is surprising for the Église Haute, also known as la vieille église, a church that was built right on the summit.

Bormes-les-Mimosas

Bormes-les-Mimosas
Finally, we want to talk about Bormes-les-Mimosas, an old hung town that dominates the sea. We love its narrow streets full of flowers, as well as its beautiful squares and handicraft shops. The best month to visit is February, during the mimosa’s flowering season . During that date the Gran Corso de la Mimosa festival is celebrated.
