Why travel to Provence? There is a lot of good reasons to travel elsewhere, and a lot of Scandinavians do so. Italy, Spain and the former Yugoslavian countries attract Northern European tourists - and, as said before, there can be plenty of good reasons for this. But some people think that Provence is a very special destination. We belong to that group, and here we will try to describe what is hiding behind this enthusiasm.
Of course, the weather is part of it. But that is not different from the other countries around the Mediterranean. Then there is the food. It is something special. But it is also so in the other countries. And much of what we experience on the culinary scene in Provence, we could also experience in other countries around the Mediterranean. For the food is very Mediterranée.
No, what - in addition to the weather, the food and the wine - makes Provence something special, is this: the colors, the fragrances, the mood and the joy of life. All this is reflected in life as it happens seven days a week, year-round - and that has attracted us and made us dependent.
We have also traveled in the before mentioned countries, and we understand that some have it the same way with those places as we have it with Provence. Therefore, we will mention one last thing where we think Provence stands out (though the competition is tough): there are even more interesting towns and villages in Provence than in any other Mediterranean country. It is a claim - but we are 100% behind that claim.
And remember, Provence is not the same as the Côte d'Azur. There is a nice coastline, but don't think you have experienced Provence just because you have been to Nice, Cannes and Cassis.
