Lavender fields, hilltop villages and spectacular rocky fjords, rosé wine and bouillabaisse, Cézanne and Van Gogh, cutting edge rap and hip-hop music, Jean de Florette, pétanque and scuba diving, Olympique de Marseille: just some of the excellent reasons to visit Marseille and Provence now.
Marseille is France’s oldest city, with a rich and flavourful history. Yet it has undergone huge modernisation over the last decade. In 2013 it will be the European City of Culture. And it has never been easier to get there, thanks to a high-speed TGV rail link, Europe’s first air terminal purpose-built for low-cost flights and fast-expanding cruise-ship traffic.
The website currently focuses on Marseille and in time, will be a complete guide to Provence. So, whether you’re planning a Citybreak, an extended stay, the purchase of your dream house or just an armchair tour of the most beautiful corner of France, come and check regularly what’s hot and fresh under the Mediterranean sun.
