  • Description: Slow-paced and scenic, the South of France is the heart of this trip – with time in Paris, before heading to Provence and the proverbial 'playground of the glitterati', the French Riviera. It's Insider moments like… winding through the Provençal countryside en route to beautiful Menerbes, as you listen to the stories of the landscape and culture that inspired 'A Year in Provence'. Later, in Luberon, it's meeting and getting to know the Meillan-Pages family at their vineyard, and exploring the grounds as you listen to the techniques and philosophy behind the cultivation of the grapes. Tasting the fruits of their labour, you sip the wine they described and dine with them on their favourite regional dishes.
