Provence, An Exceptional Setting for Work and Life

When you establish your business in Provence, you become part of a vibrant cultural life and are able to enjoy the sun-drenched natural beauty of the region and all the activities it has to offer. With such an inspiring and welcoming environment, it is no surprise that so many innovative new companies, high-tech start-ups, and research facilities have moved here.

From Aix-en-Provence to Marseille and from Istres to Arles, a large part of the territory consists of protected nature reserves. The stunning and diverse local landscapes means there are always glorious occasions to escape into nature, such as the seaside cliffs of the Calanques, the marshes and birdlife of the Camargue, or the low mountain ranges of Sainte-Victoire or Sainte-Baume.
 

A Diverse and World-Class Cultural Scene

The Aix-Marseille-Provence Metropolis has also undergone an urban metamorphosis. Since being designated as the European Capital of Culture in 2013, Marseille has benefited from more than €1 billion in investment that enabled the creation or renovation of major cultural spaces such as museums, theatres, and performance spaces.

A major international symbol of the renewal and modernization of Marseille is the MuCEM (the Museum of the Civilizations of Europe and the Mediterranean). This iconic seaside museum on the edge of the completely transformed Euroméditerranée district has become emblematic of the city’s renaissance. In Arles, the Parc des Ateliers is also destined to become an international attraction. At the center of the project is the LUMA Foundation complex designed by Frank Gehry, which will become a world-leading contemporary art space.

Culinary Delights, Community Spirit, and Outdoor Activities

Moving to Provence also means being able to enjoy the internationally renowned Mediterranean cuisine and the abundance of fresh and local produce and specialty items. Every city and village features traditional open-air markets and there is an array of food festivals from the Oursinades for sea urchins in the winter to the Sardinades for sardines in the summer. And all year long, you can partake in Provence’s celebrated wines, olive oils, chocolates, and other assorted delicacies.

With superb beaches and wonderful yearlong weather, Aix-Marseille Provence is also a paradise for sports lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. There are thousands of sports clubs dedicated to all types of activities and serving more than 150 000 people. This passion for sports is why Marseille was named the European Capital of Sport for 2017 with more than 400 events planned across the territory.

 

Because a superb quality of life in an area with stunning nature and a scintillating cultural scene are a great way to attract talented employees, inspire creativity, and motivate people for success, decision makers, business leaders, and entrepreneurs should chose Provence, a place where one succeeds because one lives well!
