Provence is a huge area in southern France that extends from Montelimar to the Mediterranean, from Nice to the Saintes Maries de la Mer.
This region of mostly rolling agricultural land has many Roman ruins some still integral parts of the later Medieval walled cities like Roman-built Arles and the one-time capital, Aix-en-Provence.
Villages and large towns like Solon de Provence, home of Nostradamus,  St. Remy, haunt of the Impressionist painters, Aix and Arles are walled cities with a great history ;
Roman aqueducts, coliseum-like arenas, Roman theatres, and Gothic and Renaissance castles are everywhere. House rentals can be found in every village and can be located on the web.
