Provence tour of the best and most secret villages
This unique and very special tour takes place in July against a backdrop of singing cicadas. There are lavender fields in full bloom, fields of smiling sunflowers and bougainvillea flowers trailing over walls – creating splashes of vibrant red and fuschia. The countryside is full of rich colour. The sunsets are spectacular. Cobbled streets and castles and charming little villages. These backdrops for your photos are nothing short of bewitching. And this time of the year is a photographer’s dream.
The tour takes place in High Provence. A land of wonderful countryside and authentic villages with ancient architecture, secret boutiques, traditional cafés and stunning views.
Sault, Brantes, Aurel, and Montburn-les-Baines, are a few of the jewels you’ll enjoy photographing and wandering through looking for details just perfect to tell a story in your photo.
Enjoy foraging and cookery lessons, a lavender distillery tour and a market. Each activity and each village is a walk through time. Provence’s history and culture will be revealed to you.
Home from home in Provence
You’ll be driven everywhere in comfort. And all meals are organised, from dining al fresco in a lavender field to beautiful bistros loved by the locals. Bastille Day takes place during the tour and that night is always very special celebration.
Though this tour packs a lot in, there’s still plenty of time to relax. You’ll stay in a lovely stone-built 19th century guest house with its swimming pool and enjoy breath-taking views over the regional natural park on the lavender route in Montbrun-les-Bains.
