This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel walking, luggage transported
  • fascinating, quintessentially Proven├žal villages
  • varied walking
  • delicious regional cuisine

This is the Provence of Manon des Sources  and other lyrical novels by Marcel Pagnol: of olive groves and fields of lavender, of chirruping cicadas, and of sleepy villages and houses with painted shutters closed against the bright midday sun.

Stroll through the narrow cobbled streets, marvelling at the way the houses cling to the hillsides, seemingly one on top of the other.
     

Framing this evocative scene is the Luberon Massif, which provides a stunning backdrop for our fabulous two-week discovery of Provence. There is a real sense of journey as you progress from east to west, the landscapes becoming ever more dramatic. Besides the subtle changes in scenery, the route also takes in several fortified hill-top villages, all charming places to while away the afternoon after your day’s walk, but just as important an ingredient of the holiday is the cuisine to which you are treated. Just to think of the dishes featuring juicy red tomatoes and creamy goat’s cheese is to set the mouth watering, and by savouring such food you’ll gain a true understanding of the sacred French notion of terroir.
