[google-map-sc width=595 height=200 zoom=8]
Being one of the most popular regions in France, Provence is an ideal place to go on a Shearings Christmas coach holiday. Meandering through the French Alps and seeing the Mediterranean Sea and the French Riviera at this festive time of year is simply breathtaking. There are many fascinating sights to see along the way, passing through Bouches-du-Rhone where Van Gogh spent a lot of time, and through the stunning picturesque villages of Vaucluse.
There is a wonderful, laid-back attitude in this region of France with the coastline popular with the rich and famous, such as in Saint-Tropez and Nice. Marseilles is France’s second largest city and is ideal for shopping and big city adventures, although being on a Shearings Christmas coach holiday to Provence there is the chance to stop at the Christmas markets and snap up festive souvenirs and local produce at will.
From the snow-capped mountains to the cool climate of the French Riviera and the achingly beautiful Verdon Gorge river canyon, there are lots of things to see and do here. Stunning cathedrals and antique theatres as well as the ruins of the Roman settlements at Nimes are just some of the unique sights. The Roman Pont du Gard aqueduct is also well worth a look.
Staying in Provence on a Shearings Christmas coach holiday ensures you get to see the finest attractions and experience fabulous French cuisine, too. The nine-day tour takes you through Monaco and Monte Carlo, rubbing shoulders with the well-heeled residents, and staying in the Miramar Beach Hotel; a 4-star beauty that overlooks the sea. From seaside cafés and restaurants to casinos and fabulous harbours, this part of Provence is mind-blowing. With optional tours to Antibes and St Paul de Vence, there are lots of things to do while you’re here and Christmas time is ideal as it’s a little quieter.
