Paint your own picture of the perfect Provençal walking tour, then step into the frame.

Golden Provençal sunlight floods cypress-fringed fields of red poppies and sunflowers just outside St. Rémy, and it suddenly hits you: déjà vu. As your historian guide illuminates the sites that inspired Van Gogh, you realize that you’ve stepped into one of his paintings. Aesthetic revelations are nothing new in Provence: perched medieval villages of stone walls and powder blue shutters; market stalls fragrant with fresh-cut lavender, honey-almond nougat and multi-hued soaps. Break your morning stroll through the olive groves with a wine tasting amidst a sea of grapevines. Pause for lunch with a jeweler in her courtyard garden. Prowl Avignon’s papal palace or the Roman ruins of Vaison-la-Romaine. When you walk through Provence, village to village, market to market, you put yourself right in the picture.

Highlights

  • Enjoy a picnic in a Provençal jeweler’s workshop.
  • Savor the surroundings and wine offerings at Domaine de Mourchon.
  • Stroll through the villages of Séguret and Les Baux, noted for being some of the most beautiful in France.
  • Marvel at the multitude of smells, flavors, and colors as you make your way through the sprawling Vaison-la-Romaine outdoor market.
  • Experience a “zen” moment at the sensational multimedia art show at Carrières de Lumières in Les Baux.
  • Gaze upon the sweeping landscapes and beautiful backdrops that inspired Vincent van Gogh’s most influential paintings.
  • Admire Gothic architecture in historic Avignon, including the imposing Palais des Papes, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Vaison-la-Romaine; 2 miles, easy

Your Provence walking tour begins with a loop walk in Vaison-la-Romaine. Wind your way through the wooded countryside and back to town, with time to relax before tonight’s reception and welcome dinner in your hotel.

This morning, check out of the hotel (your luggage can be stored with the reception desk) and enjoy a morning at leisure in Aix-en-Provence. After lunch on your own, meet your guide(s), who will be wearing a Country Walkers shirt, in the hotel lobby at 12:50 p.m. Be dressed and prepared to start the warm-up walk upon your arrival at Vaison-la-Romaine, as we will not visit the hotel first. You’ll transfer via private coach to Vaison-la-Romaine (a journey of approximately 90 minutes, depending on traffic).

Upon arrival in Vaison-la-Romaine, you’ll embark on a walk that loops from the center of town into the countryside and back. As you make your way to our hotel in the medieval section of town, you’ll stroll along cobblestone streets and through small squares, passing by fountains and a belfry featuring a wrought-iron campanile.

Enjoy time on your own to relax and settle in before regrouping for tonight’s welcome reception and dinner in the hotel or at a nearby restaurant.

After a short transfer to the village of Sablet, you will start this morning’s walk to one of the official “most beautiful villages in France,” Séguret.

Tucked between seven hills in the Haut-Vaucluse region, Vaison-la-Romaine owes its reputation to its heritage. On the right bank of the Ouvèze River, the village’s lower town stretches out, revealing a rich Roman history. This city was once the capital to the Voconces, a Gallic people allied with the Romans. The Roman Theatre houses prestigious cultural events, such as the Festival of Vaison-La-Romaine and the Choralies. On the left bank of the Ouvèze River, the medieval town, called the “high town”, clings to the abrupt slopes of the hill and surrounds the ruins of a 12th-century castle.

This morning, you hop on a local bus to the center of Avignon where you’ll meet a local guide for a walking tour of the famed “City of Popes,” so named for the 67 years during the 14th century when seven popes, beginning with Clement V, abandoned Rome and made the city their permanent residence.
