Around Saint-Maximin la Sainte-Baume :
 

In approximatly  an hour drive West  , you will be able to reach Aix en Provence, Arles and the Camargue National Park, St Remy de Provence, Les Baux de Provence and the Alpilles, not forgetting the famous Luberon villages. You will also have the opportunity to visit  Marseille, Cassis and the creeks where you can enjoy our traditional bouillabaisse (Provençal fish stew) accompanied by a glass of rosé wine.

Driving East, reach Nice, the flower capital of the Riviera, with its pastel-coloured facades and narrow lanes so Italianate in feel !

Or choose to go for a stroll along the coastline, see the red rocks of the Esterel mountain and  visit Saint-Tropez, the famous fishing village.
 

An hour North, Trigance is a perfect starting point for visiting the canyons of Verdon. Trigane is a genuine village of Haute Provence, looking out over the valley of Jabron and surrounded by fragrant hills…. And if you’re here in June, that is when the lavender fields are blooming!
