Aix-en-Provence and its surroundings

Haute Provence

Travelling back up the Durance, the Haute Provence countryside invites you to meet Giono’s land.

The lavender fields between Valensole and Riez, the earthenware ceramics from the tiny village of Moustiers Sainte-Marie, and the Gorges du Verdon, where the jade-green waters of the Verdon flow through one of the most beautiful canyons in the world. These towering cliffs are a magnet for nature-lovers and top-class sports people.
