Live Like Country Nobility 

In Southern France's quaint and picturesque Provence region, you'll understand how the area's beauty inspired both Van Gogh and Picasso to create some of the world's most famous paintings. Float in a hot air balloon over fields of bright sunflowers in this sunny expanse, framed by the Alps and the Mediterranean coastline. Breathe in the delicate scent of lavender floating in the air right outside your chateau. Step back in time as you meander through the perched villages of Gordes and Bonnieux, dipping into stores or relaxing with a glass of rosé. Don't miss the essential experience of shopping the bustling open-air markets that abound with local products.

Fresh Things To Do

  • Gourmet & Grapes

    La Bastide de Capelongue. This gourmet restaurant created by famed chef Edouard Loubet is a gastronomic event set in an exquisite location with views of the Luberon Valley. You'll quickly understand the chef's two Michelin stars. He uses the freshest ingredients cultivated from his impressive garden to create seasonal menus that never disappoint.

    Resturant Pèir. In the center of Gordes, tip back a kir royale from the five-star Bastide de Gordes restaurant. Chef Pierre Gagnaire is known for his homage to Provencal cuisine.

    Personal chefs. Provence and the Luberon boast some of the finest private chefs in the world. Acquiring these professionals requires a bit of pre-planning and you can count on your Destination Concierge to plan for you.

    Wine tasting. Some of our favorites include the world-renowned wines from Chateauneuf-du-Pape, where "Appelation d'Origine Contrôlée" was born. Visit Chateau Val Joanis in Pertuis to combine a winery tour with views of a nationally-classed flower garden that once belonged to Julius Caesar.

  • Forecasting Your Provence Vacation

    Each season brings its own charm, making Provence a popular year-round destination. Situated on the Mediterranean coast, the area has a dry Mediterranean climate, and although some parts are alpine, the Luberon valley has relatively mild weather no matter the season. Around mid-March, spring brings sunshine and warmth, and summertime heats up further, making Provence perfect for swimming and spending time outside.
