Who hasn’t dreamed of visiting iconic Provence, a land of vineyards, olive trees and stone built villages, and rosé wine, at least one in a lifetime? With our base in the Southern Luberon Valley, you will be immersed in the relaxed rhythm of this region, enjoying farmers markets and local cafés, the colourful landscape of famous painters, and the “art de vivre”, or lifestyle, of many writers. You’ll toast your new friends with beautiful Mediterranean wines and enjoy cuisine featuring seasonal ingredients sourced from nearby farms. Everyday will be a highlight, with off the beaten path activities and meeting locals in their homes and places of work. After a week living the Provence dream, you’ll come to agree that is more than a “bucket list” experience; it’s a way of life.
