The most beautiful villages in Provence

The South of France is a very popular tourist region, renowned for its sunny climate and magnificent scenery. But where to go in Provence? How do you choose the ideal place to spend your vacations in Provence and the Côte d'Azur? We've visited every village in Provence and Côte d'Azur to help you choose your destination in the PACA region.

The ProvenceWeb tourist guide presents a description of each village and town, with photos of the village, monuments to visit, places not to be missed and leisure activities organized in the commune.

For each village, you'll find local accommodation with a list of hotels and campsites classified by star, while the B&B and rental sections allow you to consult the official accommodation websites directly.

To the east of the region, on the Italian border, the Alpes Maritimes department has 163 villages. With the exception of Grasse, the hinterland of the Alpes Maritimes is mainly made up of small villages, often perched on hilltops, as the terrain quickly becomes steep once you pass the seaside.

Among the beautiful villages to visit, don't miss Gourdon and its panoramic views, Eze, a veritable open-air museum with its calade streets, Saint Paul de Vence and its art galleries, and La Colle sur Loup with its antique dealers. The medieval setting of Hauts de Cagnes sur Mer is well worth a visit, as is Tourrettes sur Loup with its stone houses and ramparts.

In winter, you can ski in the sun at the Alpes de Haute Provence ski resorts of Allos, La Foux, Barcelonnette and the Mercantour Park resorts of Auron, Isola, Valberg, Gréolière and Saint Martin Vésubie.

The seaside is home to the Côte d'Azur's major cities, including Nice, Cannes and Antibes. The old fishing villages have been transformed into seaside resorts with beaches, water sports and summer entertainment. In the Var region, take a stroll through the village of Saint Tropez and you'll see the luxury yachts that have replaced the fishing boats of yesteryear.

To discover the famous villages that make up the charm of inland Provence, visit the beautiful villages of Lourmarin, Bonnieux, Gordes, Ménerbes and Lacoste, with their carefully restored stone houses in the Luberon region of the Vaucluse. In the Bouches du Rhône, the villages of the Alpilles have opened up to tourism while preserving their authenticity. You'll fall under the spell of Les Baux de Provence, Saint Rémy de Provence and Eygalières. Quieter and wilder, the Verdon villages between the Var and Alpes de Haute Provence, such as Moustiers, Aiguines, Bauduen and Castellane, offer sublime views of the Verdon gorges and the Sainte Croix or Esparron lakes.

On the Camargue side, Arles and Les Saintes Maries de la Mer are the two major communes that make up the Camargue region. Les Saintes Maries de la Mer is a picturesque village steeped in Camargue traditions. Arles, an attractive city of art and culture, is blessed with an exceptional historical heritage.
