The French "art de vivre", through wine and gastronomy of the South


We have been producing wine in Provence for 2600 years.
The Pope was in Avignon for nearly 70 years.
Avignon is home to the largest medieval construction in Europe.
Chateauneuf du Pape wines are among the best ones in the world.

Some basic cold and impressive facts, aren't they ?

That is why I'd like to tempt you with a friendly and relaxed tour to those places, in order to discover the human side behind the stones and the dates, and see that behind the names lies a reality made of charm and passion.

If you have any questions about the program and the ways to customize it please contact me.

A Recent Review of this tour

Sandy was a very knowledgeable and informative guide on our tour but more impressive was her personable and passionate attitude during our trip through Provence. My family felt like we were visiting with a good friend who was happily showing us around in her home region. We prefer customized private tours and Sandy will gladly adjust the trip to meet your individual interest. If you are interested in a relaxing exploration of the food, wine, culture and history of Provence Sandy will be a great guide.
