More on Camping in Provence...

Provence is a region of magical light, bleached landscapes, olive groves, herb-scented garrigue, vineyards and Roman and medieval antiquities. Its unique character has, for years, encouraged artists and writers to settle amid the sleepy villages with their narrow streets and sun-baked terracotta tiles. The river valleys provide natural routes through the mountain barrier, dotted with towns such as Orange and Vaison-la-Romaine, where a 2,000-year-old bridge is still in use. Avignon was once the site of the papal court and the Palais des Papes is a spectacular construction in the Gothic style, now a popular tourist attraction and host to art exhibitions.

The Hautes-Alpes will reward you with stunning vistas and some much needed peace and quiet. In late spring the southern slopes of the Montagne du Luberon are a mass of colour with wild flowers, while Briançon, Europe's highest town, perches on a high plateau and challenges visitors to brave the high passes around it. To the south west, the extinct volcanic cone of Mont Ventoux is a windswept peak that provides dramatic views of the surrounding countryside.
