I just returned from the inaugural women's tour "Magical Provence." It was truly magical for me. Jennifer was a fantastic host. The accommodations were beautiful, the food and wine fabulous and plentiful, and the tours informative and beautiful. I would be hard pressed to say what I liked most. I would highly recommend this trip if you want to get a real taste of what life is like in the countryside of Provence. Thank you, Jennifer!!
This “Magical Provence” trip was wonderful and I highly recommend it. Provence is an absolutely charming place, and being with locals who really know the area and their way around made for an exceptional experience. The accommodations were so nice, the meals were all outstanding, and the activities with local people and the tours around villages with local guides were informative and fun. The tour director, Jennifer, was a real star — she made everything as pleasant and easy as possible. This trip was perfect in all ways. I can’t wait for France Today to create another similar trip somewhere else; I’ll sign up immediately.
We had experiences that we would never have discovered on our own. The special personal touches throughout the tour made this experience uniquely memorable. We loved every minute!
France Today delivered everything and more! Our tour of the Dordogne area was enchanting and made very unique under the guidance of our wonderful tour director.
A terrific experience for anyone who wants to learn more about the flip side of Provence, beyond the Peter Mayle clichés, and see how the real folks cook, pick and distill lavender, hunt for truffles and unwind with a game of pétanque. Highlight: standing in a pungent lavender field with a sweeping view of the Alpilles, and one lone oak tree.
