Private poppy tour – choose your dates anywhere between the end of April to the end of May

Are you a flower lover? An amateur Painter? Both? This is the time of year for you in Provence. The poppy tour is like living with a painter’s palette. Everywhere you go, you will be dazzled by lush valleys and an array of wild flowers – most notably the poppy.

The Poppy Tour takes place during an optimal time in Provence;  the weather has hints of summer but it’s not too hot,  outdoor café lunches and picnics are scheduled every day and you can still avoid the crowds – unlike July and August when it’s hard to find a place to sit and/or you are looking for the A/C .

Your Private Provence will cater to all your interests.

We can even set time aside in my favorite inspiring spots to sketch, paint or just write a few poetic lines.  This trip is all about fresh air and inspiring thoughts – all the things that Provence will naturally surround you with.poppy tour
