TOURS IN AVIGNON & PROVENCE
Twice a week, we will go together on an excursion, one inside the city, another one outside. You can visit Provence and choose the best excursions for your French immersion stay in Avignon:
AVIGNON : Tour of the city with or without a guide
Avignon is a high-class, proud city : after all, popes once resided here with their complete entourages, from cardinals down to the usual hangers-on at court. It therefore comes as no surprise that the appearance of the city is characterised by countless churches and monasteries, as well as fine aristocratic mansions.
AVIGNON: Visit a flower workshop (not periodical event)
Learn how to arrange blooms, branches, fruits with a French florist to create a specific style of seasonal fresh flower arrangement. You will learn some basic elements of floral design, enough to be able to replicate this simple arrangement on your own.
Winetasting in iconic Châteauneuf-du-Pape
The name Châteauneuf-du-Pape alone has a mystic ring that makes the eyes of wine lovers shine. One of the most prestigious names in the world of wines is only 20 minutes from Avignon : Château La Nerthe, Château de Nalys, Domaine de Beaurenard, Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe, Caves Saint Charles...
Road trip in Les Alpilles
Visit to Saint Rémy or Eygalières on a market day / oil tasting in an oil mill / wine tasting.
Beneath the castle of Les Baux, the Alpilles mountain range falls away gently south towards Maussane-Les Alpilles. Here, the sun smiles on a wonderful landscape of silver-shimmering olive groves.
Walk to the Pont du Gard + Relaxing time in Verse
Enjoy a small hike along the path of the aqueduct, with views from many panoramic lookouts.This walk gives you a look at the hidden side of the Pont du Gard and allows you to dive into the mosaic of natural environments, scrubland and olive groves, bordered by dry stone walls, an oak forest, etc.
