Arles: born by the will of Caesar, immortalized by Van Gogh, loved by artists for its magical light, celebrated by aficionados for its tradition of bullfighting and photographers for its International Festival of Photography, Arles shows off charming streets with elegant private mansions (hôtels particuliers) and lovely Provençal houses with a cascade of orange-tailed roofs. - Stylish and relaxed!

Les Baux de Provence: under an infinitely blue sky, the breathtaking remains of the medieval castle dominates the rocky spur. Extraordinarily impressive! (One of the most visited villages in France!
