The Experience

Provence is beautiful. You’ll feel it. Cézanne and van Gogh felt it. To think they could have been anywhere and they were here. Among the burnt oranges of Roussillon. The rugged cliffs of Gordes. They could have taken your same path through the gardens of St-Rémy and through the olive groves van Gogh painted. Cézanne gazed up at the same Alpilles mountains you will. It won’t surprise you they were inspired to express the beauty of Provence. But you won’t need us to tell you that. Sunny walks through limestone hills, olive orchards and renowned vineyards Exclusive tours and tastings at an organic winery and a family-run olive oil mill Soak up daily Provençal life in hilltop Gordes and ochre-hued Roussillon Savor Michelin-starred cuisine and regional wines Marie-Charlotte Bouton, local art historian and van Gogh expert


DAY 1 Michelin-starred cuisine and regional wines A world of windswept crags dotted with oak, pine and cypress trees – the Alpilles is an unforgettable place to walk Behold medieval Les Baux, perched on a rocky plateau above an eerie landscape speckled with caves and wildly eroded limestone. DAY 2 Ramble through piney woods and along limestone hills Indulge in traditional Provençal dishes, such as gigot d’agneau (roasted lamb) and papeton d’aubergines (eggplant mousse) During a tasting, can you discern the individual characteristics of Moulin du Calanquet’s award-winning AOC olive oils? DAY 3 Local van Gogh expert and art historian Marie-Charlotte Bouton leads our visit to St-Paul-de-Mausole, where Vincent van Gogh secluded himself and painted some of his most significant works, including Starry Night Footpaths lead through a beautiful weathered landscape to Château Romanin, a family-run organic winery where we stop for a private tour and tasting Looking for more of a challenge? Opt for a brisk climb over the Alpilles to a plateau for stellar views of the valley and (on a clear day) Mont Ventoux, the Alps, the Dentelles de Montmirail and even the Mediterranean! DAYS 4-6 Sunny walks through olive orchards, vineyards and perched villages Discover vibrant St-Rémy, filled with fountains, cheery cafés, treelined boulevards and a lively outdoor market, where you’ll rub elbows with locals How many shades of ochre grace radiant Roussillon? Try 16 – no wonder artists adore this place! The Luberon’s fragrant foothills and the cliffs beyond Buoux set the scene for lovely rambles With a local guide, dive into the history and hidden corners of picture-perfect Gordes.
