Women’s Tour of Provence

Written by on April 10, 2017 in Provence-Alpes, Tours in France

Provence is one of those utterly luscious places that if you see it once, you will always remember it and long to return.

Bordered by the waters of the Mediterranean Sea, the Alps and the Rhone River, Provence is a sun-drenched paradise with a gentle climate. Set at the crossroads of Europe and the Mediterranean, it has a unique blend of cultural heritage and traditions, reflected in its wonderful gastronomy. For a truly relaxing and luxurious break, a women’s tour of Provence with French Country Adventures makes for the ultimate girls’ getaway.

How to take a perfect women’s tour of Provence

If you want to get to know Provence, then a personalised, intimate, small group tour of the very best scenic areas makes for a truly wonderful visit. We don’t mean the sort of tour where you’re getting on and off the bus, rushing about and sticking to an itinerary. We’re talking about a more unique experience where you may join as strangers but you’ll depart as friends and have a cultural connection with this little bit of heaven on earth.

Sue Aran runs week long women’s adventure tours of Provence in autumn, when the weather is warm but not too hot and the colours of the mountains and the meadows are at their most exquisite. Her tours take in some of the greats of the region as well as the less well-known (and all the better for it) places. You’ll discover enticing Aigues Mortes, a perfectly preserved medieval town and Uzes, one of the best kept secrets of Provence and home to one of its most beautiful markets. You’ll take in some of the most famous towns such as sun-kissed Arles which so inspired artists such as Van Gogh and Cezanne. And you’ll also take trips to the irresistible St Remy de Provence, the antiques centre of Isle-sur-la-Sorgue and the pickled in the past perched town of Les Baux.

You’ll get to see authentic Provence at a relaxed and leisurely pace and your tranquil and luxurious accommodation will be a 250 year old traditional farmhouse. Located in the heart of Provence it is filled with antique furnishings and overlooks vineyards and the lovely town of Roussillon.

Throughout your stay you will be introduced to the finest wines and the most sensational cuisine.  You’ll visit the markets and experience the sight of stalls piled high with lush produce, scented herbs and lavender and colourful baskets. You’ll enjoy wine tasting and nibble the freshest, finest olives picked from just down the road and you’ll get to see some of the most stunning sights and places that tourists don’t generally have access to. And, when you leave it will be with cherished memories and a connection to the real Provence which Sue calls “a multi-faceted mosaic of sunshine and serenity”.

With everything taken care of from accommodation, delicious meals, transport and visits, this is a rewarding, exciting and fabulous itinerary in Provence.

Join Sue Aran of French Country Adventures for the tour of a lifetime in Provence.
