The region was re-discovered by international travellers in the seventies and since then considered as the best destination to experience Provence delightful atmosphere. One of the fantastic assets of the area is the incomparable presence of many worldwide listed Heritage sites such as the Palace of the Popes in Avignon, the Roman Aqueduc “Pont du Gard” near Uzès, the Roman Arenas in Nîmes and Amphitheatre in Arles, preserved medieval perched villages such as Gordes or Roussillon, the impressive lavender fields of Senanque Abaye, just to mention a few.
Hotels and conference facilities are numerous and of good standards. Activities are clearly orientated towards cultural and historic content, but they also benefit from the proximity of outstanding vineyards near by Chateauneuf-du-Pape, or surprising marshland landscapes of Camargue, very influenced by Spanish culture. Therefore the destination provides a good mix between opportunities for fun activities and great working environment.
Secret Tip: The period of fully bloomed lavenders is limited to beginning of July. Try to arrange your incentive and seminar projects in advance to make sure you would find availability at this spectacular time of year in West Provence.
