From Paris, Burgundy is on your way to Provence...and it is more than just a stop over.


BURGUNDY Vineyards

  • On the first day, drive 3 hours from Paris or CDG to Burgundy region. Spend 3 nights in a beautiful mansion, surrounded by a vast park. Situated in the heart of Burgundy, between Dijon and Beaune, you will be perfectly located to tour Burgundy sightseeing. Explore all major vineyards of the region and have a chance to taste red and white wines among the best in the world, directly at the winery! Your Hosts are very welcoming and you will feel at friends in their comfortable B&B. 
  • François, a real passionate, will take you for a whole day on a 4-wheel drive to tour around Burgundy vineyards, following itineraries that no other tour can do. You will taste wines directly at the winery and ride over dirt roads in Nuits Saint Georges and Vosne Romanée. François is very friendly and you will feel like a relative he wants to show his favorite places.
  • Apart from the vineyards, we will tell you how to exit the beaten track and discover the authentic and charming Burgundy. Winding roads leading to tiny timeless villages - some of them "Most Beautiful Villages of France" - will give you a real feel for this region. Explore Beaune, a beautiful medieval town that has been completely preserved from modern constructions, and you should definitly be there on market day, the local products are truly delicious. Taste some local cheeses, the "Epoisse" at the cheese factory or uncover the mysteries of the French Kings in Dijon. Burgundy has a lot to experienceburgundy provence map

PROVENCE villages & history

  • On the 4th day, you will drive about 4 hours to the heart of Provence: Avignon. You will reside in a comfortable and quiet B&B for 4 nights on the island of Avignon. This very quiet house is nestled in a nice garden where you will enjoy relaxing by the pool only 15 minute walk to the heart of Avignon old city. Your Hostess knows the region very well and she will be happy to give you some advice if you'd like.
  • So many things to see in less than an hour's drive from your B&B: Stroll hilltop villages on market day, walk on the footsteps of famous painters such as Cézanne or Picasso. We will also tell you about some hidden jewels - villages, off the beaten track where you will stroll around charming streets or have a drink at a provencal café with locals. We can also recommend a farmer’s market and wine cellar for each day of the week!
  • If you are interested in history, don’t miss the Roman ruins at Arles, Orange and the Pont du Gard. We will also take you to smaller sites – less famous and much quieter.
  • You will also explore the salt marshes of the Camargue and visit the Alpilles region, where you will find beautiful Saint Remy de Provence
  • If you like wine, save half a day to explore the Châteauneuf-du-Pape vineyards. For gourmet travelers we plan for you to spend an afternoon at a local Chef, prepare a nice dinner which you will enjoy outside, with a great view. 

 We recommend to our travelers to fly out of Marseille to save time and tiredness getting back to Paris. If not possible, we will be happy to help you find the best transportation to your next destination.
