What comes to mind when evoking the South of France are the sweetness of life, the local flavors and scents, and that special Southern light that is quite similar to the one found in Southern California. A light so incredible that it became the source of inspiration of avant-garde painters such as Cézanne, Matisse, Picasso and Van Gogh.

Since visual arts are so much part of the region's culture, the place to visit there is definitely Saint-Paul de Vence's Maeght Foundation, a Modern Art Museum founded by Marguerite and Aimé Maeght and which witnessed the birth of Braque, Georges Bonnard and Alexander Calder's major works.

For the Côte d'Azur and Provence, the places to visit are Nice, Antibes, Saint-Tropez, the Poquerolles Island, Biot and Aix.

In the South of France, time seems to have stopped and every moment is unique: going to the beach, enjoying a game of pétanque with the locals, shopping in a charming village's market, or discovering local products such as anise-flavored biscuits, cheese, fruits, or the famous Calissons from Aix. Some of the products that you can now enjoy with our a*pour toi gift boxes until your next visit to the region.
