O! France’s expert guidance will allow you to experience luxury travel in Provence, one of the most beautiful places in France, a country blessed with breathtaking landscapes, a rich and varied history and centuries-old traditions of art, culture and gastronomic delights. Authentic historical properties will be your home for the week. Small groups of like-minded travellers, a relaxed pace, memorable meals accompanied by specially selected wines and visits to carefully chosen destinations will give you a unique, exceptional and very personal perspective on French culture.
In 2015, we are planning a very special week in Provence, long considered one of the most stunning regions in France. With its sunny Mediterranean personality, colourful markets, beautiful hilltop villages, unforgettable scenery and classified towns of art and culture, Provence delivers an unforgettable experience. We will cruise the Calanques of Cassis, walk in the footsteps of Van Gogh, visit the 2000 year old Pont du Gard, a Unesco World Heritage Site, and savour multi-course dinners with carefully chosen wines each night in our 14th Century Castle.
June is, without a doubt, one of the loveliest months of the year. Things have finally started to warm up and we’re able to shed our winter layers without fear that there may be another cold snap around the corner. Should you truly want to experience June in all its splendour, you’d be wise to make your way to Provence as not only does the month mark the start of summer but the beginning of lavender season as well. There is nothing quite like a field full of lavender: the unbelievable smell, the vivid colours, the fields that appear to have been painted into the landscape… it’s truly what dreams are made of. In celebration of lavender season, here are some of the best places to experience this magical flowering plant.
