We highly recommend Kathy and Sam for a great introduction to the Aix-en-Provence city and surroundings. Aix has a wonderful morning market with period architecture, and Kathy's knowledge of the area is extensive. However, the highlight of our visit was Chateau La Coste -- much more than a vineyard! The wines in the tasting room were superb and the architecture outstanding. An outdoor art exhibit featured pieces by Calder, Gehry, Serra, Matisse and many others, a rare and precious find. Thanks again!
