Your private chauffeur Provence

Written by on October 23, 2018 in Provence-Alpes, Tours in France

Provence is one of the most beautiful places on earth. With its long history, a legacy of art and architecture, the most beautiful landscape of lavender, sunflowers and poppies, of vines and seaside towns, perched villages and ancient cities – there’s much here to fall in love with.

Travelling in Provence

Getting about on public transport in Provence isn’t that easy. You can of course travel city to city but when it comes to seeing some of the most iconic sights such as the lavender fields, the hill top towns, the glorious countryside and picturesque villages you need wheels. And, it also helps to be with someone who really knows the area, its secrets, the best places to see lavender in bloom or poppies swaying in the warm breeze. Someone who can tell you where the most authentic cafés are, vineyards where you can enjoy a tasting in an authentic setting, lunch in a restaurant the locals think is the best in Provence but you might never find.

Discover Provence

If this is you – then meet Emily Durand. An American expat who has lived in Provence for many years, married to a French man and fully fluent in English and French, and Emily knows Provence. She knows its special places, it’s off the beaten track corners. She knows where the best lavender fields are when to best visit them. She’s got a little black book of restaurants, bars, cafés and vineyards that transforms a visit into something truly memorable. If you want a picnic, she can organise that for you, or get you a table at some of the most fabulous restaurants.

Emily runs tours of Provence but she’s also a private chauffeur (fully qualified) and with a luxury, top of the range, roomy Mercedes 8-seater minibus for hire and she loves nothing more than to share real Provence with her guests.

Whether you’re seeking transport for a private half day trip to see the sights of Provence, a full day tour, a VIP tour over a few days or week, a Van Gogh themed tour or other themed tour, or simply a transfer, Emily can help. Without the hassle of having to hire a car and drive yourself, just sit back and enjoy your luxury travel experience.

Your tailor-made tour of Provence

Whatever your personal choice is for a tour of Provence, Emily’s knowledge and contacts mean that you’ll get a really bespoke service. Whether you want to experience cooking lessons with a chef, seek out the most photographic areas, take a ride in a classic 2CV, hit the markets or even go truffle hunting, each tour can be designed specifically with you in mind. She’ll plan your itinerary with you and make sure you get the experience of a life time in Provence whether it’s for half a day or a lot longer.
