It is lavender season. Time for mouthwatering produce, overflowing Provençal Markets, festivals like Bastille Day, the Tour de France, lavender, bull fights, concert series and Mediterranean beach trips. Look at one of our outstanding festival itineraries or culinary vacations, or create your own for your private group. We make a vacation in Provence easy and special. We take a maximum of 8-12 people. We do not use buses and do not have rigid schedules. We customize meals and wines, and even activities. So, if you want to have “insider” experiences, and see and do things most tourists never get the chance to, then join us!
