Walking in Provence
"C'est vrai, Provence is very beautiful. From short strolls to longer more challenging walks there is something for everyone to enjoy in this area of France...Provence conjures up images of fields of lavender and groves of olives, of vineyards stretching into the distance, and of Van Gogh’s bright sunflowers and contorted cypresses. And although there is as much diversity in the vegetation as there is in the landscape, these are indeed the most characteristic plants of the region."  (Cicerone Article) More - Cicerone have 10% off printed guide books including Provence - West and East
