Shortly about Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur in France.

It’s been a long time. I must say it’s hard to come back to writing posts after even a short break. If I won’t push myself to do it regularly, then it’s like there are no posts anymore. Anyway, back to the topic. The shorter name for this region is Region Sud (“sud” means “south”). Before I will start with travel posts about the cities that I visited on my holidays, here’s a short introduction.

It’s hot here. Even in September, when you walk on pavements covered with dead leaves you still have to swipe sweaty drops from your forehead. Is that bad or good? Well, for people like me, who likes low traveling prices and fewer tourists that’s the best. I mean there’re still a lot of people, especially Italians and Germans.


It’s very expensive, and by very, I mean Norwegian standards of prices. When going to France for holidays I was thinking of a European type of price tags. But no, for two coffee in a rather non-touristic and small city you pay 6€ (two coffees in Oslo are around 50-60 NOK, which is also 5-6€). Not to forget about this one time we went to a grocery store and for simple food, for a couple of days, we paid 50€.


It can be very difficult without a car. All those famous cities are relatively close to each other, but without a car, it can be a nightmare to travel around. And it can be nice for a short trip on the famous Tour de France-road, Route des Coursegoules. It’s a very long road literally between the Alpes (or Pre-Alpes).


But not gonna lie, the region itself is amazing. Hot weather, palms, warm and relatively clear sea, pubs and cafes everywhere and of course sports cars are what makes this place a holiday destination. If you have some money to spend and want to have a proper place to relax and discover without (usually) a drop of rain, Region Sud is for you. And no, it’s not an ad (nothing on my blog is).

See you guys soon with more France-related posts! Have a lovely week.
