Example Itinerary

Day 1-4

PROVENCE, France

  • See the Provençal landscape that inspired artists from Cézanne to Van Gogh
  • Find your perfect secluded picnic spot with specially-prepared French goodies

Built on a hilltop with uninterrupted views of the plains below, Crillon le Brave bursts with vineyards and stone mas.

Begin your road trip in Provence at no other than Hôtel Crillon Le Brave, situated in a quaint terracotta-tiled rural village. Each morning, wake to a locally sourced breakfast on the terrace with views of the sun rising over Mount Ventoux. Hop in your car to explore over 2,000 years worth of history in the nearby medieval towns with Avignon and Arles closeby. With many premium wineries in driving distance, we can arrange for you to have a private tour around a local vineyard. Back at the hotel, indulge in a relaxing massage in the converted 18th-century stables.

Day 4-6

AIX-EN-PROVENCE, France

  • Taste some of the South of France’s best wines
  • Sleep amongst the works of some of the world’s most acclaimed artists

Stay in a hillside private domain set amongst Château La Coste’s vineyards for a refined but traditional Provençal experience.

Drive on to Villa La Coste, where you’ll spend your next two nights, set in between the university city of Aix-en-Provence and the famous Luberon Nature Park. On a self-guided walk, explore the specially-commissioned art installations around grounds, featuring works by Tracy Emin and Ai Wei Wei. If an artist catches your eye, pay a visit to La Coste’s bookshop offering specialist works on each artist. Wine lovers can immerse themselves in La Coste’s vineyards, upgrading to a blind wine tasting experience or tour of the chai.

Day 6-9

CÔTE D’AZUR, France

  • Bronze yourself on one of the region’s most exclusive beaches
  • Stumble across magnificent views of land and sea on a scenic coastal walk

This corner of the Cote D’Azur, Ramatuelle, offers a luxury escape perched high above the deep blue seas of the Mediterranean.

Continue to the French Riviera where you’ll spend three nights at La Réserve in Ramatuelle. Perched up in the hills, rise to unrivalled views of the Mediterranean and lounge by the pool for ultimate relaxation. You can also discover incredible views of both land and sea whilst walking along the coastal path. Hop in the shuttle to the hotel’s glamorous private beach club on the celebrated Pampelonne Plage where you’ll while away the day sipping rosé and tasting delicious Mediterranean dishes. On a day trip to St Tropez, the vibrant heart of the French Riviera lined with yachts and beaches, explore the quaint cobblestoned quarter and its charming restaurants.

Day 9-11

CÔTE D’AZUR, France

  • Spend an evening in the local village playing pétanque in the main square
  • Explore Vence’s colourful morning fruit, vegetable and spice market

Nestled amongst olive groves just outside the town of Vence, revel in an untouched and authentic pocket of the Riviera.

Drive to the market town of Vence, where you’ll spend your final two nights at Château Saint-Martin, a historic castle once a Knights Templar Commandery. Whilst here, hop on a bike to explore the dedicated coastal bike trails leading to Antibes, passing through hilltop towns where you can stop for a peaceful lunch. Once in Antibes, visit the Picasso Museum to see a unique collection of ceramics in his former home. Within the hotel grounds, indulge in a relaxing spa treatment before a reservation at their two Michelin-starred restaurant, Le Saint-Martin.
