Les Alpilles/France

Introducing Les Alpilles

This silvery chain of low, jagged mountains strung between the rivers Durance and Rhône delineates a très chic side of Provence, notably around upmarket St-Rémy de Provence, known for fine restaurants and summertime celebrity-spotting. The entire region is full of gastronomic delights – AOC olive oil, vineyards, Michelin-starred restaurants and truffles. History comes to life at magnificent ruined castles, remnants of medieval feuds, and at one of Provence’s best Roman sites, the ancient city of Glanum.
