Rugged and beautiful, the landscape here is different from everywhere else in the South. Nowhere else will you find the Camargue's hypnotic plane of marshland stretching out to the sea, or the rocky Alpilles that jut upward hiding medieval fortress towns. Yet city folk find joy here, too, in Van Gogh's colorful Arles or in feisty, fiercely independent Nîmes. And if it all gets just a bit too dusty, there is a plethora of options for some pampered R&R.
