The countryside of Provence is quite beautiful and distinctly Mediterranean. I never realized how overwhelmingly dense in things to do and see. There is no way not to make this a return region to visit. There is something to see or do everywhere you turn. When we think of “old” in California we are amazed to find something a few hundred years old though there are Native American sites. Here almost everywhere you step there is something ancient and certainly there has been quite a bit of attention focused on this region.
