A truly typical Provençal village, Maillane will charm you with its many shaded squares, window boxes bursting with flowers, olive trees, cypresses, and, of course, the soothing singing of the cicadas! Maillane was home to the poet Frédéric Mistral, and the village is intent on celebrating the great man's life. There are a number of itineraries you can follow to discover more about Mistral's life, taking in le Mas du Juge where he was born, the maison du Lézard where he grew up, his family home, now a museum, and finally the cemetery where he was put to rest.
