Our friends Véronique and Pascal live the dream in Provence leading our cooking tours. Now you can join them to walk in the thyme-scented countryside, amble home from the market with mesh bags full of amazing produce, and pour an extra splash of wine to prolong an evening on the terrace. We'll live the Provençal lifestyle for a week, settled luxuriously into our favorite 17th century château. Every day, there's something new as we visit hilltop villages and walk to Roman ruins and a secluded abbey. Among four cooking instructions over the week, you’ll get tips in a friend’s lovely kitchen and from a local chef and cookbook author who offers her secrets to provençal cooking…meet the farmers and artisans for whom the area is justifiably famous…visit local markets…and be welcomed to a private wine-tasting at one of Châteauneuf-du-Pape’s fine vineyards. Most of all, you’ll get a very personal taste of life in the sunny, storied south of France.
