Step by step

Paris French Riviera South Provence North Provence

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 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!
  • Discover Avignon, the city of the Popes, or the 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's mountains, at a very private wine estate. Here, you will take a tour to the winery, then enjoy a wine tasting followed by a nice picnic in the vineyards. A very romantic experience. 

 

Paris French Riviera South Provence North Provence

Southern Provence between the Luberon & Aix

  • For the following 4 nights, stay half-way between Aix-en-Provence and the Luberon hills, in a very hidden B&B lost in the "garrigue" shrubland and pine forest. From the B&B, you can explore the landscapes which inspired so many painters including Cezanne. 
  • From here, discover the beauty of Southern Provence as you visit picturesque little villages in the Luberon 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, where you will find beautiful Saint Remy de Provence and Van Gogh's favorite landscapes. We will tell you where to buy the best olive oil or lavender products!
  • We also plan for travelers interested in Jewish history to spend a day with a private guide. Provence has a lot of Jewish heritage and culture to discover such as Cavaillon or Carpentras synagogues, which are among the oldest in France.

The Riviera: Seaside & Hinterland

  • After about a 3hr drive, you will arrive in the French Riviera, in a lovely historic town uphill, so away from the main crowds. Stay in a very artsy B&B, where your lovely host, who was born here, will be very happy to share a lot of tips & hints for you to make the most of your stay.
  • In the Riviera hinterland, you will have the opportunity to discover some of the most beautiful handicrafts in France, particularly ceramics, sculptures and paintings. 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 art and museums. 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. And at night, you can rely on the Riviera's 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.

 

Oh là là, what a trip !

Our Travelers’ Reviews

Leslie & Family
Just returned from an amazing trip with our family, including 3 teenage boys. Emilie carefully listened to our request to focus on military history and arranged an itinerary with just the right balance of history, culture, art, and military history. We had incredible guides to Paris, WWI, and WWII sites plus unique B&Bs. So many memories!
Roger
The planning and coordination of our holiday was quite awesome and far exceeded all of our expectations and indeed our imagination. The 300 odd page personalised guide book with maps, times and distances, restaurants on route and at our destinations, recommended places to visit on route and the accomodation itself and hosts at each location were …

We just returned from a 15 day trip to Paris, the Loire Valley and Normandy. Our trip was planned by Emilie with precise attention to detail, giving us our perfect itinerary. We were independent in our travels but it was evident that Emilie and her staff were available throughout the trip. They appeared to always be mindful of our location and …
