Even if that wasn’t where our wedding was it’s a great place to start. Great transport, fabulous town, Montpellier is not your average tourist destination. While most people think of Nice or Cannes or Provence as the South of France, Montpellier is far less touristy, far more real and has its own unique vibe. So fly in to Montpellier, hang about for a few days just walking around the old town, eating and drinking rosé in the square then pop into the boutiques and listening to street music. You can also base yourself here to explore these nearby treasures.

We drove to Avignon to find our wedding caterer whose address was “towards Avignon, turn right at small town, after cemetery take third road on the left which a grey sign with no name on it…that’s where you’ll find me.” That’s how things roll around here. Near Avignon is where you’ll find those famous fields of lavender, they even do bus tours apparently, but the town itself is also an amazing maze of little roads, giant walls, bridges, ruins, churches, markets, restaurants and general amazing French-ness. Down the road is Orange, famous for having some of the most impressive Roman architecture still standing in Europe.

This tiny town nestled in the heart of the French Alps is a must for anyone travelling to France. In the winter, it’s a hot spot for skiers and snowboarders as it’s the perfect chalet town and easily accessible by coach bus or car. In the late spring it’s clear of tourists and a magnificent destination for hiking, horseback riding, and enjoying the majestic beauty of Europe’s crown jewel, Mont Blanc.Where to stay
