Essential Salon-de-Provence, a soap opera

This is a simple itinerary designed to stimulate your senses. The first stops on the tour are the Marius Fabre and Rampal Latour soap factories, two Provençal institutions. Salon-de-Provence was also the one-time home of Nostradamus, the famous seer and now the name of an excellent chocolate makers in the town. At Château de l’Empéri, history buffs will get a thrill brushing their hands over ancient stones. Lastly, after a fancy lunch at Mas du Soleil, it's onwards to Au Clair des Fontaines for a little refreshment. Follow the guide!

Marseille "luxe" by Les Marseillaises

Here in Marseille, we have sunshine, sea, Pastis… and lots of great shops! Well known clothing brands, accessories, refined concept stores, starred Chefs and terraces with panoramic views and much more. The second largest town in France can hold its head high when comparing itself to the Capital, let us prove it!

Arles, cultural city break ancient and modern

Arles is an oasis of antiquity with its archaeology museum, Roman amphitheatre and the long-condemned ancient cryptoporticus. You'll travel back to the Middle Ages with a visit to the Church of St. Trophime and Montmajour Abbey that affords fantastic views all around. At the Fondation Van Gogh, learn about the painter's work and his influence on the art world, while the Réattu gives you an insight into 19th and 20th century art history. Don't forget to stop for lunch (we recommend J.L Rabanel) and follow that with more culture at the Actes Sud centre.
