Flavours of Provence

Gourmets and foodies from all over flock to Provence which has assembled all the ingredients for an exciting culinary journey. In this part of the world, the vineyards along the Cassis wine route graze the Mediterranean Sea. In Aix-en-Provence, the almond scent of calisson sweets mingles with the orange blossom of Navettes de Marseille biscuits. Rouille brings colour to bowls of bouillabaisse while olive oil made in the Alpilles is a staple on every table! Not to forget rice and meat from Camargue. A gourmet tour of Provence promises an epicurean feast.

Aix-en-Provence, wine and gastronomy – exploring the Durance

Aix-en-Provence is a city of art, a city surrounded by the sea and salt-water lagoons, but it is also a city shaped by the land. Its vineyards, olive oil and local specialities are all a testament to this. Discover the secret to chocolate-making at Chocolaterie Puyricard and head off to meet passionate winegrowers. The terrace at La Flambée du Lubéron on the banks of the Durance will make a perfect spot for lunch! Make sure you don't miss Château Paradis in Puy-Sainte-Réparade before setting off to Jouques where you'll get to visit three exceptional estates (Château Revelette, Domaine la Chapelle Saint-Bacchi and Domaine Villemus) which all promote organic wine production.

The Mediterranean, from beach to creek

Do you love the seaside and the great outdoors? Wild countryside bathed in sunlight? Then this tour was made for you! Over three days, take a tour of unspoilt places that have earned Provence's coastline such a fantastic reputation. Begin at the immaculate and practically deserted Camargue beach before continuing your trip with an invigorating stroll around the Côte Bleue Marine Park. Then cap off your long weekend between Marseille, Cassis and La Ciotat with a tour of the calanques (creeks) including the lovely and secluded En-Vau. A fresh breath of sea air!
