THE FRENCH RIVIERA

  • To avoid the crowds on the Riviera, you will stay in a small hilltop village in the hinterland only 8 miles from Nice. The B&B house is located at the top of the town so you will enjoy a beautiful sea view from your room and from the breakfast terrace. You are walking distance to several restaurants and will feel at ease to explore the Riviera region.
  • In the Riviera hinterland, you will have the opportunity to discover some of the most beautiful handicrafts in France, particularly ceramics, sculpture and painting. You might be tempted to step into a glassblower's shoes and make your own “chef d’oeuvre”. For art lovers, the many art museums of Nice and its surroundings will amaze you with masterpieces by Chagall, Matisse and Picasso.
  • Have a very fun experience making your own fragance: in a famous perfume house, you will be taught the basics of perfume making, then choose between hundreds of ingredients to prepare your own 100ml / 3.4 Oz Eau de Parfum which you will bring back home. 
  • But the Riviera is even more than all this. The “Cote d’Azur” is a marvel of fabulous 19th century villas and sapphire water coves. Wander about the narrow alleyways of the old city of Nice and visit the many famous art museums. Go shopping and enjoy views of the Mediterranean in seaside restaurants from Monte Carlo to Antibes.provence cote d azur trip map

SOUTHERN PROVENCE

  • About 3hr dive and you will get to Southern Provence, near Aix-en-Provence. Stay for 2 nights in a gorgeous fortified castle, in a  room with Empire period furniture and a canopy bed.
  • Your delightful Hosts, the owners of the place, will have you join a tour of the château, from basement to rooftop. You will have the meals in the sumptuous medieval kitchen, with its hanging copperware and monumental fireplace. Existing since the 11th century, this château, located nearby Aix-en-Provence, is the perfect starting point to explore the surrounding area of southern Provence.
  • Wander around picturesque villages such as Ansouis and Lourmarin on the slopes of the Luberon Mounts and get a feel for the peaceful atmosphere of these places. Visit Aix-en-Provence and its many museums. Tour the salt marshes of the Camargue and visit the Alpilles region, where you will find beautiful Saint Remy de Provence…we will tell you where to buy the best olive oil! 

AVIGNON AREA

  • On the 7th day, you will drive North to central Provence. Stay in a beautifuly restored stone house in the old walls of Avignon, 3 minute walk to the Palace of the Popes. Avignon is a perfect base camp to explore Central and Northern Provence. 
  • One day, discover quaint villages of the Luberon, driving an electric bike. You will have several itinerary options, from easy to sportive, for you to explore hidden hamlets, chapels in the vineyards, wineries, road-trails in the olive trees and evergreen oaks. A great day, at your own pace. 

  • And while we're on the subject of Provençal gastronomy, we have planned a truffle hunt in a very secret place. You will work with the hunter and his dog in the Provence hills. After that, you will savor several truffle appetizers to get accointed with this highly valued mushroom.
