To start with, we’ll drive to an authentic Provençal open market where you’ll discover the gastronomic treasures of the region: wines, fruits, vegetables, cheeses, breads, pastries and other Provençal dishes and delicacies.
After choosing the food you’d like for the picnic, we’ll be on our way to a beautiful spot for lunch. All the accoutrements will be provided: table, chairs, napkins etc.
A wine tasting at a Provencal vineyard can be arranged, if desired.
Market days and towns for picnic food take place in:
– Cavaillon on Mondays and Aix-en-Provence on Tuesdays.
– Saint-Remy de Provence and Arles on Wednesdays and Villeneuve-Les- Avignon on Thursdays.
– Lourmarin on Fridays and Pernes-les- Fontaines or Apt on Saturdays
– Finally, L’Isle-sur- la-Sorgues on Sundays.
If you’d like, we can play a game of pétanque, the most popular pastime in Provence. Depending on the location of the market place, we will provide a circuit of must-see places: for example an ancient monument, a hilltop village, lavender fields or a seaside drive.
The delightful Provençal dishes will blow your mind and leave you addicted to the region of Provence!
