Provence alone or with your family

There are plenty of fun filled adventurous activities in the area for non flyers as well as leisurely sightseeing, whichever they prefer.

Almost any time is good in Provence as the climate has been described as the best in Europe with, according the the tourist office, over 300 sunny days each year.

La Motte du Caire

La Motte du Caire has a rich past, having belonged to Charles d'Anjou, brother of King Louis IX (Saint Louis), one of whose sons became Pope Clement the Sixth. La Motte du Caire is today a typical Provençal village, with its car park shaded by plane trees, its café and its fountain newly refurbished.

Village relaxation

It's simple colourful houses with pastel shutters have been built overlooking orchards of fruit trees. If you take one of these quiet streets lined with kitchen gardens, you will be surprised to discover, provided you have the strength to climb the steps, some magnificent remains of the past, streets entirely covered over that offer a welcome coolness in summer, and that have an incredible medieval feel to them.

The Romanesque church with bell tower is also likely to enchant you, as will the fountains, the low set ancestral doors, one of which dates from 1682.
