Provence, mon amour...
Food and art are passions in Southern France and key ingredients for the Culturious.
Mix a chef, a food expert, a sommelier, trips to local markets, a cooking class and a wine tasting in one of the world's great wine regions – and what follows is a mouth-watering portrait of Provence.
Paint in idyllic walks down lanes that inspired Cézanne in Aix, contemporary art on the grounds of a classic Provençal château, an insider tour with a van Gogh art scholar in St. Remy, a picnic in a lavender meadow, exploring the Roman ruins of Glanum, soft landscapes changing hues in the waning sun, and a farewell in Châteauneuf-du-Pape... and the palette of your Provence tour becomes richer still.
A stay at the Bastide is agreeable in every season. In summer the thick stone walls and the air conditioning protect from the heat and the life is mainly outdoors inbetween the pergola and the hammock gently pushed by the breeze under the centuries old oaks. A swim in the pool, a game of tennis will alternate with a glass of pastis while playing petanque or a walk in the vinyards and mediterranean maquis. In the cooler seasons it is a pleasure just to relax with a glass of wine on the old leather sofas close to the enormous chimney.
