Tour France with a group of friends, not on a bus. Bus trips and people with banners and schedules really don’t give you a feel for a place –nor do they give you a good time and a relaxing but informative experience.
What’s your favorite color? Well, in summer, my favorite color is lavender. And, right now, it’s in full bloom…From the hills of the Luberon to the valleys, the color lavender is everywhere. It’s Bliss!
Start with lunch. Views, sunshine, and a collection of colors. Lavender, newly planted by a friend to “garnish” the best table in the house! Thank you Florian and Eric for another unforgettable experience–one a group of us will experience in late July and early August.
(Join us in our last room of a small group –10 people –July 28-August 4 along the Mediterranean and in Paris. This trip was not advertised, and there is one room. Contact us for details asap. 609 462 6213 or email@example.com)
Of course, after lunch the Mediterranean beckons. It is pure Bliss!

Summer vacations involve the beach, for sure. But, what many people don’t know is that there are stunning beaches, with world class views, and great dining –on the Mediterranean, that don’t break the bank –and still make you feel like you’re in a fairy tale land (which you are).
The view from here:looks like this:And this…as you watch the boats go by. This is a little sailing school. Too Cute!look carefully –there’s a castle at the mid point of the cliffs (top of the lower cliff). Staying there is quite an experience.One room left in mid July and one in August. Contact us toute de suite to book.
Tour France: Experience Provence…like a local (menu suggestions below)
Wondering down the village road to visit the local market –set up from the town parking area through the main square, and on several little streets. Not the biggest area market –but a very authentic and less touristy one.Taking our picnic items to a nearby olive grove where we walk along and see the first lavender blooms.peeking in corners at gardens
Paints quite a nice picture of the day –we think it’s Bliss
Picnic Menu: Roast rabbit a la moutarde, artichoke vinaigrette, wood oven baked bread, freshly picked cherries and melons.
Tour France: Provence in Cherry Season…The best vacation in Provence
Life may not be a “bowl of cherries” but you sure can pick your own treats….Fast food Provence style –pick your own dessert on the way home from dinner!
These cherry trees are so full of cherries that the bows are bent nearly to the ground. This little orchard is off of a Roman road, a few steps from the center of a Medieval village we like to call “home”.On our way back, the view was panoramic. Today’s adventure begins with market day.
Contact us to know more about our last room in July (NEW dates: Arrive between July 13 and 16 for Bastille Day in Provence or Paris, and then spend July 18-22 in the Luberon) and our trip in October!
Provence and the Mediterranean. It’s the most colorful, tasty time of year. Vibrant is the word that best expresses the summer. Long, languid, yet energizing. Enjoy the photos below. Taking them was Bliss!
Dancing in the streets…for every holiday, summer festival and so fun to do and watch! Clear blue, peaceful…A favorite place to promenade and watch the street performers.dining on the mussels, beachfront on the island
