Discover Provence

Discover Provence

Our Discover Provence tour is planned to explore all of our three specialist areas. The Parc Naturel du Luberon with its huge vistas and delightful perched villages, the Alpilles around St. Rémy, an area steeped in history and associations with Van Gogh and the Cotes du Rhone area of the Dentelles, with its peaceful wine villages and the attractive town of Vaison la Romaine. We also include a stay in the beautiful old city of Avignon.

These three beautiful and distinctively different areas offer the very best of everything in Provence - history, culture, markets, ancient villages, beautiful countryside, old towns, lavender, food and wine.

We make all the bookings and pre-pay for all your hotel accommodation and provide you with a Route Book which includes all the detail you need for your holiday - your hotel and meal arrangements, a detailed day by day route planner with road directions, town plans, suggestions for excursions and visits with details of opening and closing times, and of course maps of the local area.

The Itinerary is planned to allow you plenty of time to explore the back roads and hidden corners of this beautiful region at leisurely pace in true provencal fashion. We give you time to unwind, to sit and relax over a glass of wine in a pretty square, to picnic under the pine trees, to feel the warmth of the sun on ancient stone.

If you have time to spend a slightly longer holiday in Provence we can offer two suggested ‘add-ons’  to extend your holiday either in the lively university city of Aix en Provence or a stay on the Cote d’Azur for either two or three nights.  Just let us know your preference and we will be delighted to provide you with a quotation for your extended holiday.

Travel to the area

With the wide choice of options for travelling to France both from the UK and Ireland and from outside Europe , we have found that our clients prefer to make their own arrangements for travel to Provence. So to enable you to take advantage of the best value and most convenient travel options from your area, we have not included travel to Provence in the cost of your holiday.

We will of course be delighted to give you all the advice you need in helping you with your travel arrangements.

Tailor Made Self Drive Touring holidays

In addition to our pre-planned Discover Provence Self Drive holiday, we can plan a Self Drive Holiday tailor made to your own particular preferences and holiday duration in any of our specialist areas and even in other parts of Provence. Itineraries are planned with plenty of time to explore the beautiful countryside and charming towns and villages with the added benefit of the complete freedom and flexibility of your own car.

You can be based in one area with daily excursions or tour a wider area staying in two or three different locations. Maybe combine the Luberon with an exploration of the Cotes du Rhone area of the Dentelles or the olive growing area of the Alpilles around the old town of St. Rémy. Or spend a week touring followed by a week in one location in a self catering holiday cottage.
