NOTE: This is an example itinerary.

Day 1
  • Pick-up at either Marseille Provence Airport or Avignon TGV Train Station. 
  • Transfer to your choice accommodation
  • Half-day tour possible before transfer to your lodging depending on arrival time
Day 2
  • Luberon hilltop villages and luscious valleys…today we embark on a journey to the villages on the hills, the castles and churches standing proudly at the top, and the remnants of ramparts still apparent in the circular layout of the village. On the routes there are many amazing vistas points and we’ll make some gourmet stops as well (wine, olive oil, & crystalized fruit)
  • Return to your lodging and dinner on your own
Day 3
  • The Alpilles region gets its name from the mountain range running long and narrow and jagged at the top like the Alpes (Alpilles means « little Alpes). Here we trace two different time eras: the Romans and Van Gogh. Along the routes, we can also incorporate wine & olive oil
  • Return to your lodging and dinner on your own
Day 4
  • Before leaving Provence to your next best destination, one more day in Provence to explore what interests you the most. Perhaps you’d like to taste the famous Côtes-du-Rhône wines and see the villages that give the names to the Cru wines (Gigondas, Châteaneuf-du-Pape, Seguret).
  • Or perhaps you’d like to see the Camargue region to photograph the flamingoes, white horses, and the mosaic of textures in Europe’s largest river delta (not to mention it’s also a UNESCO wildlife reserve)
Day 5
  • Transfer to TGV train station or Marseille airport
    • Possibility to have private transfer to Nice should you be interested in exploring the Côtes d’Azur

Loved the cultural and geological history, the insights of a local to life in Provence, and a diverse samplin..."

The unique experiences Emily created for us were amazing from garden tours, cooking class, painting workshop, face cream making, galleries, private chef and walking tours. Her driving was so good from pick up at Avignon TGV to d..."
