The walled city of Avignon: While most exciting in July, the theater festival at the Palais  des Papes, Avignon is surprisingly youthful and vibrant year around.

Chateauneuf- du- Pape: Probably the most evocative Cotes du Rhone vineyard but just one of many villages in this area where you can sample exceptional wines.

Lavender: Get hip-deep in purple by touring the Lavender Route between l’Abbaye de Senanque ( near Gordes) and the historic town of Sault.

The high life. Experience the Luberon’s mountaintop villages perches, set in a patchwork landscape right out of a medieval book of hours.

Seeing red in the Roussillon: With its  ocher cliffs that changes tones – copper, pink, rust – depending on the time of day, this town is a gigantic ruby embedded in the Vaucluse bedrock. The legend has it that the wife of a nobleman threw herself from the top of the cliffs after her husband forced her to eat her dead lover’s heart. The earth turned scarlet red with her blood, and rocks and villages were left with a permanent rosy glow.
