South of France – Exploring the Mediterranean
The South of France incorporates a variety of scenic explorations. Roman built cities, medieval hilltop villages, sumptuous valleys and even spectacular mountains are just the beginning of what you can explore.
One hour south, of what I call the central core of Provence (around L’Isle sur la Sorgue), is the Mediterranean. To truly explore all the facets of the South of France, I highly suggest at least one day along the Mediterranean.
Truffle & Wine Tour
January 16th – 22nd, 2018
Truffle & Wine Tour for a unique and authentic tour in Provence
How does it sound to forget the winter blues and escape to something warm? If you are like me then there is no question to even ask – sign me up! This luxury winter tour is a chance to explore fine food, outstanding wines, exotic truffles and cozy winter fires.
Imagine yourself in a 12th-century priory that has been converted to an elegant B&B at the foot of the Mount Ventoux in Provence. There you are sitting in the chapel room that serves as the dining room with Chateauneuf-du-Pape wine laid on the table. The logs on the fire are crackling and your host has just entered the room to present her signature Provencal winter dish.
