Le Petit Marseillais™ has been capturing the ingredients, scents and colors of this gorgeous region from the very beginning.

You’re in the heart of Provence and quaint villages surround you. Rustic stone homes fill the valley, with vineyards and lavender fields in the distance. Enjoy this scenery as you stroll with cheerful sunflowers and bright red Poppies alongside you. The never-ending nature and bright blue skies make any day spent in Provence a beautiful one.
Follow the bees and take a deep breath: no need to open your eyes to find lavender! Indisputably the flower of Provence, lavender fields fill the countryside. Originating from west of the Mediterranean basin, lavender was first treasured by the Romans.
Present in every Provencal village is the olive in its many forms, as an oil or as an aperitif, either black or green. If you are lucky enough to visit a village of Provence on market day, expect to leave with an armful of local produce and herbs.
Lovers of old stones will adore the villages of Provence. Whether you’re passionate about architecture or nature, there’s something for everyone in Provence.
Hear that? It’s the soothing sound of cicadas humming in the summer night. By day you’ll hear crickets, birds chirping, bursts of laughter and maybe even water flowing in nearby fountains.
