Visit sites where the country’s heritage have been miraculously preserved, havens of culture harbouring architectural treasures to rouse the senses, and bastions of French art de vivre and tradition that are not merely alive but thriving.
Our tour to this part of France reveals villages spread out like a fan, built against a cliff or encased in a small valley. Others are nestled in the loop of a river, at the foot of a grand châteaux or at the bottom of natural gorges. Romantic villages, in the shade of cypress groves, are bedecked with lavender, garrigue and vines, while others glisten with colour, lie between land and sea, or rise from the waters.
Together we will explore and enjoy these ‘beautiful villages’ in places off the beaten track, safeguarded from urban development and communication highways. We travel in smaller self drive luxury vehicles so we can arrive without interference in the daily flow of these intriguing places.
The cities we visit are also unique and historic, waiting to be explored as they enjoy a spectacular renaissance offering fine art galleries, excellent food and drink, historic architectural treasures and great shopping.
