You've always wanted to know more about Provence, its hidden tracks only known by the locals? You
have always wondered how locals buy and cook fresh food from a market in Provence and match it with the right wine? You don't have time to waste trying hard to communicate with locals... I can
organize the Provence private tour of your dreams. Every season offers a special opportunity to taste new typical fresh produces. I can schedule a 3 or 5 cellars visit and tasting in authentic
wine estates. I can also book your reservation in an authentic gîte or chambre d'hôtes, suggest local restaurants that are really worth going to! Get a ticket for a special event, take
you to lavender fields, historical sites, truffle hunting and many other things...
I'm only 8 kilometres away from Châteauneuf-du-Pape and 15 kilometres from Gigondas, Beaumes-de-Venise, Vacqueyras, and many other Southern Rhône crus. I worked with three big cellars in Châteauneuf-du-Pape for over three years, and have relatives in the Beaumes-de-Venise area that produce wine. If you wish to know more about Southern Rhône, well, do get in touch with me!
I first started travelinprovence.net as a wine tour, and then as an licensed history guide. Food, wine and history are my passions. My “off-the-beaten-track” tours include genuine contact with the region and its people. In my opinion, clichés are useful for promoting a country or a region, but need to be passed over if one wish to get to know a real culture and an area. People who contact me want authentic experiences that include connecting or reconnecting to the provençal way of living, culture and terroir. I was born in Provence in the black truffle and Grignan-les-Adhémar region, and travelled in some European countries during childhood and teenage. I love to communicate with people from any backgrounds and origins especially about Provence of course ;-) Please check my tours or contact me for any excursions you might fancy.
