Although just a relatively short distance inland, the glorious hills, quiet paths and back roads in the heart of rural Provence are as far removed from the glitz and glamour of the French Riviera as it is possible to imagine.

Here, the quintessentially French idea of terroir – whereby nuanced flavours reflect the land from which they came – rules the roost. Fragrances of lavender, rosemary and wild thyme pervade the air, while a deliciously simple cuisine, featuring plump red tomatoes and creamy goat’s cheese, seduces the palate.

Equally beguiling is the unique quality of the light. Exquisite hill-top villages (many with colourful weekly markets) and great Roman monuments (such as the Pont du Gard aqueduct and Arles’ amphitheatre) are a sight to behold, especially when suffused with that warm Provençal glow.

So travel slowly through this timeless countryside as you sample the fruits and flavours of the land and bask in its radiant beauty.
