In the enchanting realm of Provence, where each cobblestone path reveals a new story, lies a region that hosts blossoming fields and delicate flavours of rosé wine. Our luxury villa rentals offer an immersive experience into the timeless allure and culinary delights of this South of France gem.

Culinary delights

The essence of Provence lies in its dishes prepared “à la Provençale”, showcasing the region’s abundance of garlic, olives and the oil that comes from them. Expect a culinary expedition through local markets where fresh produce and artisanal cheeses, including the renowned chevre, await your indulgence.

A region celebrated for its Rosé

The oldest wine region in France, Provence is known as the place to go for excellent rosé. Pair that with its cool nights, mistral winds and Mediterranean sun and you’re met with the ultimate backdrop to enjoy the palest salmon pink wines. From the vineyards of Whispering Angel to local artisanal producers, please allow us to arrange a tasting tour.

Tracing artistic footsteps

Immerse yourself in Provence’s artistic heritage as you follow in the footsteps of luminaries like Van Gogh, Picasso, and Cezanne. Explore quaint villages and scenic landscapes that inspired timeless masterpieces and witness the enduring creative spirit that animates the region.

Exploring natural wonders

From meandering river valleys to fragrant lavender fields, Provence is a treasure trove of natural splendour waiting to be explored. Visit iconic landmarks such as Gordes, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, and Arles to immerse yourself in their rich history and charm.
