PROVENCE to BORDEAUX, 03 - 17 AUGUST 2019
BOOKED OUT!

Starting August 3rd, spend one week in a charming small villa in the beautiful town of L'Isle sur la Sorgue, not far from Avignon and the small perched villages of Provence.


Millau Viaduct
Then we travel through the Midi-Pyrenees, staying first in a lovely old chateau - with swimming pool! - near Millau; a chance to see the amazing Viaduct of Millau, the highest, longest bridge in Europe. On to Carcassonne, a medieval fortress and a World Heritage Site. Travelling on through the Midi-Pyrenees we stay in a delightful Bed & Breakfast - also with swimming pool! - and a family-run chateau before arriving in Bordeaux for the last 2 nights of the tour.


Chateau de Bellevue
While in our villa we will visit the surrounding villages, such as Gordes, the town of artists, and Roussillon, famous for it's red ochre buildings. And of course we cannot miss a day in Avignon! L'Isle sur la Sorgue ("The Island on the Sorgue River") has numerous canals running through it, in fact, our villa is situated on one of the canals. The town is famous for it's Sunday market, the biggest in Provence, with one long street purely selling antiques. A great place to browse, even if not buying! Our villa is only a 10 minute stroll from the heart of the Old Town, in a quiet cul-de-sac with a terrace bordering the river. A tranquil haven in which to relax after a day exploring the treasures of Provence!
Another excellent excursion is to Les Baux, another World Heritage village and also the site of the Carrières de Lumières, the "Quarries of Lights", which each year present an amazing sound and light art show. This year the show of Carrières de Lumières redrew a century of Spanish painting wth the show Picasso & the Spanish Masters. We await with eager anticipation the announcement of next year's show.


A square in Rousillon
As we travel on through the countryside we will take time to explore the small villages and rural areas, have picnics, and indulge in local cuisine and wine. After all, that is what France is all about! We enjoy showing our guests the France that WE love, the hidden corners, the little country roads, what we think of as the REAL France.
