10

fabulous

things to do

in Provence

In an area famous for so many things, like beautiful lavender fields, charming hilltop

villages, and delicious food, it’s hard to pick favourites. We asked local author Keith van

Sickle for his top ten Provence things to do…

Les Carrières des Lumières, Baux-de-Provence

Magic in a Mountain

Imagine this: you enter a giant cavern with

sheer, 30-foot-high walls. Huge images start

to appear on one wall, then another, then on

the floor. You realize that they are paintings by

a great artist like van Gogh or Cézanne. The

images pulse and swirl, full of life and color,

their movements choreographed to beautiful

music. This is the Carrières de Lumières, the

world’s most magical sound and light show,

and a different artist is featured each year. It’s

so popular that copies are popping up all over

the world, but none matches the original. You

really do have to see it to believe it!

Picnic in the Sky

The Cedar Forest sits far above the Luberon

Valley, higher even than the nearby hilltop

village of Bonnieux. As you take the winding

road up to the forest, there’s a secret spot off

to the side

where you

can picnic

under a tree

and enjoy an

unparalleled

view across

the valley.
