A prism of radiant color and sensations warmed by the sun, kissed by the sea, and perfumed by the sweetest of blooms, Provence-Alps-Cote d’Azur is the scintillating soul of Southern France. Shaped by the capricious Mistral and the brilliance of the Mediterranean sun, the land is a celestial composition of glittering shores met by cerulean seas, stony hilltop villages, fragrant lavender fields, storied wine estates, and stunning French Riviera towns. With close historical ties to Italy, the region is a vibrant cultural blend of rustic French Mediterranean traditions and Italian influences, which have cultivated the warm and creative spirit that has for centuries beguiled art and history lovers, wine connoisseurs, and epicureans alike, as an utopia for the senses. Just as the region’s hues of coral, azure, green and yellow were forever captured by the dreamscapes of Renoir, Cézanne, Van Gogh, and Matisse, its exquisite farm to table cuisine is a masterpiece of the land. From silky Provencal olive oils and full bodied Chateauneuf-du Pape vintages, to earthy black truffles and an abundance of aromatic herbs and produce, Provence and the Cote d’Azur offer a warm palette of wonder to awaken the soul.
