Provence is a gorgeous (wide view of a nature scene/wide area of beautiful land) of olive groves, sun-drenched rolling hills, and deep purple lavender fields, with little villages lied down snugly inthe valleys and sat (like a bird) on rocky (rocks sticking up from the ground). The full of lifescenery has haunted/impressed many famous artists, including Cezanne, Matisse, Chagall, andPicasso. Provence is a perfect blend of simple natural beauty and country charm where the artde vivre is a way of life. Take (relaxing/in a relaxed way) walks along the cobblestonestone streetsand recline in the sun on sunny terraces of outdoor small restaurants. Visit the colorful open-airmarkets and enjoy the delicious food based on olive oil, vegetables, and nice-smelling herbs. Aix-en-Provence is the most important market town. Arles has fascinating very old ruins andtraditional special celebrations (with fun events). Avignon was the (very old time in history) city ofpopes. Even the tiny villages, like Saint-Paul-de-Vence, Saint-Remy, and Gordes, have amazinghistoric places/locations, fantastic museums, and an irresistibly attractively old-fashionedmood/quality.
