Those who decide to go walking in Provence with us, decide to go on a journey that will take them to stay at our handpicked and charming accommodations and visit restaurants that only the insider knows. With a comprehensive book of route notes in hand, walkers will have access to information on the history and cultural aspect of places that they will pass while hiking in Provence. On top of that there are recommendations for places of interest such as that not-to-miss wine estate, the olive oil mill just around the corner, and details about the local flora & fauna. Embark on a Provence walking tours with us for a true immersion in this southern French region.

Vincent van Gogh arrived in Arles in Provence, after a 16-hour train ride from Paris in February 1888. He then commenced the most productive period of painting in his life. He fell in love with the area at once: Arles, the Alpilles, blooming fields, Langlois drawbridges and abbey ruins. ‘My God!’ he exclaimed, ‘If I had only known of this country at the age of 25, instead of coming here when I was 35.’ This may express the feelings of many of us today. Such a diverse region, spanning from the alps of Haute Provence in the north, to the rolling hills of the Luberon and the seaside icons of Nice, Cannes and Marseille in the south, Provence has so much to offer the active traveller. Discover it all when you are walking in Provence for your holidays.

One tip before you go, plan your walking in the mornings and late afternoons and then spend your middays indulging on the fine French cuisine followed by a little siesta, as the French do.

Please ensure your passport is stamped on arrival in the Schengen area.

However long stay visas are unlikely to be issued unless there is a valid reason (eg. studying in country). Unfortunately we cannot assist in obtaining visas for long stays due to individual country visa requirements.
