NORTHERN PROVENCE in a Quaint town

  • Your itinerary starts with 4 nights in the heart of a peaceful provençal town near Mount Ventoux. Your lovely hosts will welcome you in the house they entirely remodeled. At night, refresh in the garden with swimming pool or enjoying a dinner cooked by Eric, your host. A very Provençal experience!
  • Northern Provence remains the most authentic part of Provence, with little villages and dramatic landscapes. If you are interested in Roman ruins, you'll have a lot to see: the amphitheater at Orange, the arenas at Arles and NÎmes or also the Pont du Gard. We will also take you to smaller sites – less famous and much quieter. For the gourmets, we will recommend a farmers market or a wine cellar for each day of the week!
  • We also plan for you to take a very fun cooking class at a local's place: you will spend the afternoon cooking then savor a great dinner. Dishes can be planned according to your wishes. 
  • Discover Avignon, the city of the Popes, or Chateauneuf-du-Pape red wine vineyards. On the wine subject, we will take you to a place you could not find on your own…lost in Provence mountains, in a very private wine estate. There, you will take a tour to the winery, then enjoy a wine tasting followed by a nice picnic in the vineyards. A very romantic time.

  • For the following 4 nights, stay at the foot of the Luberon chain, in a working wine & olive farm with an amazing provençal postcard view. The B&B is surrounded by a lovely garden with a swimming pool and if you wish your hostess can prepare meals some nights with local products and of course, the farm's wine. 
  • From there, discover the beauty of Southern Provence as you visit picturesque little villages in Luberon or bigger cities such as Marseille or Aix-en-Provence. Tour the salt marshes of the Camargue, take an easy hike in the calanques near Cassis or visit the Alpilles region, where you will find beautiful Saint Remy de Provence and Van Gogh favorite landscapes…we will tell you where to buy the best olive oil or lavender products!

THE RIVIERA seaside & hinterland

  • About 3hr dive and you will get to the French Riviera, in a lovely historic town, only 8 miles from the worldwide famous city of 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. For art lovers, the many art museums of Nice and its surroundings will amaze you with masterpieces by Chagall, Matisse and Picasso. We have included in this package the museum pass so you won't pay for most of the sightseeing on the Riviera. 
  • But the Riviera is even more than that. The “Cote d’Azur” is a marvel of fabulous 19th century villas and sapphire water coves. From Antibes to Monte Carlo (Monaco), seaside resorts will satisfy all your shopping desires during the day. At night you can rely on the Riviera bars and seaside restaurants to entertain you.
  • Nature is always within reach, with many hiking trails, biking tours or natural rock climbing possibilities in spectacular scenery.
