Provence is the stuff that dreams are made of. Lavender, sunflowers, and vineyards fill the countryside. Ancient villages cling to the sides of hills, inviting visitors to explore medieval buildings. Local markets overflow with produce and spices so lovely and fresh that your mouth waters just looking at them. Everywhere, people seem to be enjoying the good life in the south of France. We fell in love with all the sights, flavors, and history of this divine place, and these photos will show you why.
