Van Gogh arrived here in the late 19th century, and this beautiful region inspired some of his greatest work: the chiseled teeth of the Alpilles mountains that soar high above the Rhône Valley, the sunflower fields, the piercing Provençal sun that highlights the façades of village homes, the Mistral winds that rhythmically sweep the lone cypress tree...

Behind the French Riviera the Alps rise dramatically. Almost all tourists visit the tiny strip of land along the coast, but the "backcountry" is dotted with timeless villages that have escaped the glitz and glamour of the towns along the sea. Your centuries-old paths lead from one village to the next, with jawdropping panoramas of mountains and Mediterranean Sea.
You are based in the quaint Riviera town of Le Lavandou, in the charming Espadon hotel for 5 nights. With Le Lavandou as a base, you will explore some of the best kept secrets of the Riviera: its pristine and untamed coastline paths, and two of the “Golden islands” just off the coast, absolute paradises of nature and walking paths.
Hidden behind Mont Ventoux, the tiny village of Reillanette is your home base for 5 nights. During the days you can choose from one of several walks in the region, while in the afternoons we've included access to Montbrun les Bains' celebrated thermal spa, only two kilometers from your accommodation. Fine cuisine is included on two of your evenings, while a rental car is at your disposal for your entire stay.

8 days / 7 nights- from 995 € Alpilles, Dentelles de Montmirail, ...
The liberty of a rental car allows you to choose from many different circular walks: whether the majesty of Mont Ventoux, the vines of Gigondas and Châteauneuf du Pape, the windswept crests of Van Gogh's Alpilles, or the deep canyons and rolling hills of the Luberon, and everything in between, we've left no stone unturned. We've hand-picked two of our favourite accommodations to use as bases for your holiday, where you'll feel more than at home. And with your car -- on a whim -- feel free to visit any number of sites Provence has to offer.

The jagged white limestone along the coast reflects the deep blues of the Mediterranean Sea, creating a symphony of turquoise inlets known as the "Calanques". These inlets stretch from Marseille to Cassis, both of which you'll explore at length while staying at our hand-picked hotels in the very centres. You'll finish in style in Aix en Provence, atop the narrow spine of the Sainte Victoire mountain, from where an uncomparable panorama is unveiled.
