With the ice slowly melting, a view of amazing colors could be a nice break from the all the white we’ve seen during the past months. What could be a better way to welcome the spring than to visit places known for their beckoning hues and eye-catching shades? If you are planning on having one of your luxury retreats this spring, the best places to visit are the most colorful ones. Let’s take a look at some of them.
Feast your eyes on the bright colors of Provence, France.
If you are a lover of flowers and foliage, then you should definitely spend a week or two in this wonderful French region. The reason why Provence is considered one of the most picturesque cities in France is because of its quaint villages surrounded by lavender fields, or right next to the bluest waters you’ve ever seen.
Fall in love with the tulip fields of Holland.
Most of the tulip fields can be found in Noordoostpolder, Flevoland. Tulips bloom from mid-March until the end of May. Though if you want to see it at the time when it’s most glorious, you should visit this province is during April—the peak season, when the area is literally transformed into a collaged turf of different colors, like it’s blanketed by a very colorful quilt. Whether you are on a budget travel or not, you definitely should not miss these tulip fields when in Holland.
Spend your luxury retreat in Procida, Italy.
Now, you can literally “live in a colorful world” by spending a few days in Procida, Italy. Aside from the stunning view of the Bay of Naples, what will really captivate you is the view of arrays of houses—in different colors and sizes—actually reflected in the water. Embellish this with the local fishermen’s boats docked near the edge of the bay, and what you see is nothing short of pure perfection.
Soak up on the rosy hues of shibazakura in Chichibu, Japan.

At one point during the spring, there is a spot in Japan, particularly in Hitsujiyama Park, that looks like it was painted in different shades of pink. This is because of the abundant growth of pink moss, or locally called the shibazakura. What adds to the beauty of this place is aside from the copiousness of the actual pink moss, there are also about a thousand Cherry Blossom trees planted in the park. This is definitely a place you must visit during one of your luxury retreats in Japan.
