Preserved nature, 300 days of sunshine a year, sublime landscapes from the pre-Alpine mountains to the hills and plateaus of Haute-Provence, passing through the spectacular canyon and lakes of the Verdon, the lavender fields on the Valensole Plateau and the lands of Forcalquier between the Lure Mountain and the Luberon. It's a mosaic of old cities with pleasant lifestyles: Manosque, the home of Jean Giono, Digne-les-Bains and its thermal baths, Sisteron with its citadel ruling over the Durance river valley and then a string of villages with tremendous charm and remarkable heritages: Simiane the Rotonde, Lurs, Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, Castellane, Annot, the citadel of Entrevaux. The Alpes de Haute Provence have everything to captivate lovers of nature and authenticity.
