Provence: a state of mind?

Provence is one of those magical destinations that travelers dream about. Blue skies, warm days, balmy evenings, healthy cuisine, splendid architecture, a fascinating heritage and the wonderful sing-song accent of the local inhabitants, the Provençaux. It is almost as much a state of mind as a geographical area.

But where exactly is Provence? Technically it is contained within the modern Région of Provence-Alpes-Cote-d’Azur which occupies the south east corner of France. It includes the Counties, or as they are known in France, Départements, of Vaucluse, Bouches-du-Rhône, Var, Alpes Maritime as well as Alpes-de-Haute-Provence and Hautes Alpes (the last is not included in this edition of the App).
