Real Provence is a small independent tour operator specialising in three beautiful and distinctively different areas of Provence which together make up the area we call 'real Provence' - the Parc Naturel du Luberon, the Alpilles area around St. Rémy and the Cotes du Rhone area of the Dentelles. We believe these three areas combine to offer the very best of everything in Provence - history, culture, markets, ancient villages, beautiful countryside, old towns, lavender, food and wine and much much more.

Real Provence is owned and run by us, the two directors who know these areas inside out and have personally visited all parts of the region, the excursions, the hotels and the rental houses which we feature.

We hope our holidays appeal to people who prefer an in-depth exploration of an area not just a mad dash from one 'must see' sight to another. Our touring holidays are planned to include as many of our favourite places as we can, and of course this includes some of the main sights but our itineraries are designed to allow you also to explore the back roads and hidden corners of this beautiful part of France.

Our personalised service means that when you ring our office, the chances are that you will probably speak to one of us so we can talk to you about our holidays, the areas we visit and what you can expect.

We know the prettiest picnic spots, the liveliest markets, the best restaurants and hotels, the most interesting vinyards, where to take a gentle stroll and it goes without saying that we will take you to the most charming of the many beautiful villages and sites of interest. We plan and operate all the holidays ourselves and are proud to offer what we believe to be a truly personal service taking care of all the details (so you don't have to) with an attention to detail second to none.

So for a wonderful holiday in this very special part of France, come with us and explore 'Real Provence'.

Your financial security

Real Provence is not a large company and we are therefore not bonded with the two organisations with which you may be familiar - ABTA and AITO. However this does not mean that you need have any worries about the security of your money when you book a holiday with us as we protect all our customer payments with an insurance scheme, the International Passenger Protection Scheme. This scheme guarantees a refund of all your payments to us and indeed your repatriation should this be necessary, due to the cancellation or curtailment of your holiday if, by some unhappy force of circumstance Real Provence

should become insolvent. We issue you with an insurance certificate for this cover when you book your holiday with us. Please note this cover applies to UK residents only.
