Step by step

Southern Provence

  • Start your journey with 3 nights in Aix en Provence - only 30 minutes from Marseille international airport - on the slopes of the Sainte Victoire mountain. You will be comfortably settled in a typical “mas house”, surrounded by a lovely garden with a swimming pool. From the B&B, you can stroll beautiful trails that will take you on Cezanne footsteps.
  • From here, discover the beauty of southern Provence as you visit picturesque little villages in theLuberon or bigger cities such as Marseille and Aix-en-Provence. Tour the salt marshes of the Camargue, take an easy hike in the calanques near Cassis or visit the Alpilles region. We will tell you where to buy the best olive oil, herbes de Provence and lavender products!
  • In a lovely and typical town, you will be introduced to the local game, la Pétanque, with Jean Marc who was born and raised in Provence, with a bottle of rosé, bien sûr. 
  • Avignon, also referred to as “the City of Popes”, is a must see. Explore the Palace of the Popes, the well-preserved ramparts and the famous “Avignon Bridge”. We'll explain how to visit them while avoiding the crowds. If you are interested in history, don’t miss the Roman ruins at Arles, Nîmes and the Pont du Gard

 Northern Wilder Provence

  • For the following 3 nights, you will stay in a typical Provençal stone house, perfectly located to explore the Mount Ventoux area, the Luberon and Isle sur la Sorgue, famous for its antiques. 
  • Your hostess and her family will welcome you warmly and give you hints and tips about the surrounding area. 
  • In Provence, we can recommend a local market and wine cellar for each day of the week! We also plan for you to visit a family-owned olive oil farm to learn how this is made . . . and of course taste the local products.

Paris !

  • On the 7th day, you will drop off the rental car at Avignon's train station and take a TGV train to downtown Paris.
  • For the last 3 nights of your trip, you will be living the Parisian life. Comfortably accommodated in a charming boutique-hotel in the heart of the Latin Quarter, in the Sorbonne area, you will discover the French capital city’s must sees and hidden beauties.
  • Being based a 10 minute walk from Notre Dame Cathedral, you can explore Paris by foot, by boat or using public transportation with unique and different itineraries we have prepared for you.

Our Travelers’ Reviews

Wendy & Ron
We could not be happier. When we first received the guide book and brochures, we thought we would not need them, but they were invaluable! Our first stay with Florence and Phil was especially memorable but really we cannot think of a highlight because it was all wonderful. We will certainly recommend your company to anyone we know travelling to …
