The Experience

From Sunny Southern France to Beguiling Barcelona

“Slowly in the morning and not too fast in the afternoon” is a saying in the south of France. When you’re never far from a delicious Côtes du Luberon or Catalan wine, an exquisite meal and intoxicating scenery, they’re easy words to live by. So feel free to stop, sample and savor. Wander leisurely in Provence, through the countryside and within the ramparts of medieval villages perchés. Marvel at Costa Brava’s white-sand beaches and brilliant Mediterranean waters.
