My cousin currently lives in Provence and he likes it a lot there. Is anyone here from there? What do you think of that city?

Dear Pierrecardin,
Provence is not a city but a region / area in the South of France. It includes different cities like Arles, Saint-Remy de Provence, Aix en Provence....
This area is really wonderfull thanks to its climate, its landscape, its proximity to the sea, the mountains (Les Alpilles, Le Luberon). You have so many thinks to do there if you like walking, cycling, playing golf, swimming...
Do not hesitate to contact me if you need information from someone who lives there and is happy to do so.
