Bathed in sunshine, this area has built its renown on the Riviera and its legendary cities like Saint-Tropez and Cannes (with its famous film festival). Its backcountry, comprising important terroirs and traditions, is no less interesting. Areas like the Camargue (with its nature park) and Provence (known for its lavender colours and scents) offer ideal opportunities for walking and relaxation, plunging the traveller into Mediterranean Europe, far from the tumult of the coast.
