Toulon is genuine Provence – the real thing. It’s not one of those garishly painted souvenir shops smelling of synthetic lavender that some other Riviera towns have turned into. In this place ordinary people live and think just as they have always done along this gorgeous stretch of coastline. There are wonderful smells of lavender and thyme in the market places. The difference is that this is the real Provence. Like the sea breeze.
