Discover gorgeous olive groves, beautiful vineyards where the famous rosé is produced, and Chateauneuf du Pape. And of course you’ll want to try the wines (who wouldn’t). Having your own private driver means you can taste to your heart’s content without worrying about who’s driving.

You might want to go to the restaurants the locals love, the famous bistros. With Emily’s book of contacts you’ll be spoiled for choice. And, if a picnic in a picturesque spot is more your thing, then why not stop off at a gorgeous market and get supplies. You’ll discover amazing cheeses, delicious artisan baguettes, fresh fruits and salads and tasty charcuterie. Why not finish off with a jewel like cake, washed down with some local wine.
