Save up to €300 pp on a small group tour of Provence

European destinations are back in vogue and Provence is an unbeatable choice. History, Culture, Food and Drink, the South of France has it all. 

Provence Guru small group tours are based in the small Provencal village of Lourmarin. Little-known outside France, the village is a favourite of hard to please Parisians. Mention Lourmarin in a conversation with a token Parisian, and a smile inevitably comes over his or her face: “J’adore Lourmarin” they will likely confess.

Our groups stay in a 4-star hotel with a swimming pool and spa, a 1-minute stroll from the centre of the village. With stunning views over the Luberon mountains, Lourmarin has something for everyone: plentiful art galleries, numerous cafés and restaurants, and one of the best weekly markets in Provence. Time simply slips away in the embrace of her streets.

Les Calanques and Cassis

On our 6 day tour we visit all the main sights of Provence – Arles, Les Alpilles, Aix en Provence, the Luberon Hill Villages and the Mediterranean port of Cassis. Our tours have a maximum of 10 participants allowing you total flexibility. Clients can choose to follow in the footsteps of Cezanne and Van Gogh, soak up the unparalleled Roman history of the region, or just kick back and relax on a café terrace with a glass of rosé. There are two wine tastings at renowned local vineyards, and culinary treats a plenty with off the beaten track restaurants and samplings of local delicacies.

The coming season will be Provence Guru’s busiest ever. Travellers are increasingly worried about long haul destinations and cruises. Small Group Tours of European destinations are consequently predicted to boom.

Traditionally seen as expensive, with rigid itineraries, escorted tours in fact offer great value, and freedom to explore at your own pace. The added bonus is having an experienced tour leader on hand for unparalleled insight and insider access. All Provence Guru tours are led by Jamie Ivey, the author of 5 books on the region (including a major guidebook).  Jamie is an acknowledged expert on all things Provencal, and has been welcoming groups to Provence for the last 3 years. His first book, Extremely Pale Rosé, won the Gourmand award for the Book of the Year on French wine.
