Highlights

Stop, and Smell the Lavender

As picturesque as a Van Gogh or Matisse painting, the lavender and sunflower fields create vibrant landscapes and a bouquet of scents. Enjoy olives and truffles, alongside the crystal waters, a tranquil assault of the senses. Of course, the vibrant fields of lavender which Provence is famous for, are best enjoyed when they are blooming - from June, hence the departure date of this journey.

Dive into a New Culinary World

Accompany our executive chef and Provence-born CEO on an alluring experience. Stroll through the local markets, partake in cooking classes, and relish traditional dinners at our villa. Culinary treasures, such as bouillabaisse, boeuf en daube (infused with local herbs and spices) are on the menu. Marvel and imbibe in the plentiful wine varietals, paired with the robust flavors of Provence.

Take a Leap into the Past

History-rich Provence is home to numerous medieval bridges and abbeys. The Pope’s Palace in Avignon, a miniature Champs Elysées is alive with restaurants, and the shops in Aix en Provence will certainly delight you.

Feel at home in Provence

Make yourself comfortable in our luxury home, where you can unpack, and relax for the week. Take a lazy swim in the pool overlooking a scenic valley, and indulge in the meals prepared by our world-class chef whilst watching the sunset.
