Week in Provence

Go Beyond Provencal Paradise

5th – 12th October 2022

What's to get excited about!

Provence, famous for its blue skies, beautiful landscape and rich culture.

We will be staying in the high hills of the National Verdon Park, in the Verdon Gorges, the biggest canyon in Europe, the emerald jewel of Provence.

Perched behind the picturesque village of Moustiers Sainte-Marie, in the Gite de Venascle, we will get to experience this French paradise from different aspects, kayaking on the River Verdon in the gorge, walking the colourful markets stands of the Provencal villages, encountering the Verdon Gorges iconic birds, the Griffon Vulture, at close hand, visiting the Roman city of Aix-en-Provence and exploring off the beaten track in off road buggies.
