Flights from Australia, New Zealand and South Africa There are no direct flights to Provence from Australia, New Zealand or South Africa. Most visitors will therefore fly to Paris or London, where they can transfer to a flight to Nice or Marseille or – if flying into Paris – onto an ultra-fast TGV train for onward connection to the south. Flights via Asia or the Middle East, with a transfer or overnight stop at the airline’s hub, are generally the cheapest option; those routed through the US tend to be slightly pricier.

Speedferries UK t0870/220 0570. com. com. 33 BASIC S | Getting around 34 Getting around Travelling by train is the most reliable and economical means of visiting Provence’s main cities. Once you reach your destination you can use the local bus networks to get around, both in the town and out into the surrounding areas.

It’s actually illegal for hotels to insist on your taking half board (demi-pension), though you’ll come across some that do, especially during the summer peak. This can work to your advantage, however, since the food may well be excellent and considerably cheaper than a meal in a restaurant. Note that many family-run hotels close for two or three weeks a year in low season.
