THE ETERNAL ENCHANTMENT OF THE SOUTH
Its name alone evokes the chirping of crickets, the fragrance of lavender, the silver-green color of olive groves in the sun, Montagne Sainte Victoire or the Sainte Baume mountain ridge, towering over the village of Nans les Pins. The enchanting setting of Provence, blessed with abundant sunshine, has inspired generations of writers and painters. The region provides the backdrop for the most stirring narratives by Jean Giono and Marcel Pagnol, who filmed The Baker’s Wife in the village of Castellet. Cézanne and later Braque were dazzled by the village of Estaque, and Van Gogh by Saint Rémy de Provence.
