With the smell of lavender captured in a gentle breeze, Provence surprises travelers with its breathtaking views, mouthwatering cuisine, and small-town tranquility. On this amazing 5-night program, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the charm of its idyllic towns, an experience you can customize if you choose to extend your stay to Paris, Nice, or other destinations throughout France. With our Travel. Your Way! programs, choose your accommodation type and choose your activities, and we'll piece it all together for an unforgettable, hassle-free vacation.

  • Visit the nearby Abbey of Senanque, where lavender fields bloom from June to august.

Day 3 - Saint Rémy de Provence / Les Baux-de-Provence / Arles

  • Breakfast at the hotel.
  • Depart to Saint Rémy de Provence, one of the most authentic towns in Provence.
  • Here you can discover the St-Paul-De-Mausole Clinic, where Van Gogh produced about 150 paintings while he was treated for mental illness, a good place to start exploring. Its cloisters now house the Valétudo art- and music-therapy center, where a permanent exhibition of paintings by patients, many of them for sale, is showcased since it opened its doors in 1995.
  • Nearby you may also wish to visit the ancient Roman city of Glanum.
  • Next, we recommend that you visit a local olive oil mill, where you can sample some of the best oils of Provence.
  • Continue your exploration towards Les Baux-de-Provence. This village is unique among the many attractions in Provence. It is both an ancient ruin and a quaint much visited town, perching for nearly a mile along a narrow strip of land that juts up from the valley floor, surrounded on three sides by the sheer jagged cliffs of the Alpilles Mountain range.
  • Then discover the city of Arles with The Arenas and Theatre Antique Pop down to the interesting Théâtre Antique, an outdoor Roman style semi-circle theatre that sat 12,000 people. Built by Emperor Augustus at the end of the first century BC, it was later used as a quarry, so much of what you see today is in ruins, but it is still used for outdoor performances.
  • Return to the hotel.
