Picking lavender on a Real Provence Tailor Made holiday acation

Tailor Made

Real Provence specialises in holidays to three beautiful and distinctively different areas of southern France which together 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. We can plan your holiday to any duration and departure date so why not let us show you the best of Provence on a holiday planned to suit just what you'd like to do, when you'd like to do it.

If you have a special interest or activity which you would like us to include, or particular places you would like to visit, we can be completely flexible in making whatever arrangements suit you best. In addition to our recommendations of the major 'not to be missed sights', we can propose an original choice of

hotels, visits and excursions for a truly personalised holiday in this very special part of France .

For inspiration for what to do and where to go on your Real Provence holiday see our suggestions below on what to include in your holiday, where to stay and when to go.

When should we go?

We can plan for any length of holiday period you choose and any time of the year. If you are planning a touring or walking holiday our advice would be to plan a holiday in the spring, early summer or autumn when the climate is ideal. In the peak summer months of July and August, both hotel and self catering accommodation is much in demand and we would recommend planning a holiday in these months up to 6 or even 12 months ahead.

Why book with Real Provence?

If you would like us to tailor make a holiday for you then you will be using our expert knowledge and service. Although this will cost you more than if you were to plan and book all these arrangements yourself, the benefits of booking a holiday with Real Provence are:

Our in-depth knowledge
We specialise in three specific areas of Provence which we know inside out. We have personally visited all parts of the region, the excursions, hotels and self catering properties we recommend. We know the prettiest picnic spots, the liveliest markets, the best restaurants and hotels, where to take a gentle stroll or a challenging hike and it goes without saying, also the most charming of the many beautiful towns and villages and fascinating sites of interest.

Our personal service
When you ring our office the chances are that you will speak to one of us so we can talk to you about our holidays, the areas we visit, what you can expect and make suggestions about what might be right for you. We can arrange a wide choice of holiday types to suit your needs - and our personal service will ensure that your holiday is the very best provencal holiday experience.

Our main operations office is in Provence
This means that you can be sure that everything is being taken care of on the spot and of course we are there on hand during the whole of your stay to provide any additional assistance you may need during your holiday.

Itinerary planning
While it can be fun planning your own itinerary, and most of our clients do have their own ideas, our in-depth knowledge of this region means that as well as including some of the 'must see' sights of Provence in your holiday, we can also suggest some more original visits and excursions and take you into the back roads and hidden corners of the area to get to the heart of what we call 'real' Provence.

Making your own arrangements may save you some money but it can be very time consuming and you have no guarantee of quality. We can give you that reassurance and take all the hassle out of administration.
