Testimonials

We share these testimonials with you not to pat ourselves on the back, but to reassure those of you who may be timid about taking the leap that others have done it and had a great time. Perhaps it's easiest to do it with a friend or, like some trips, line up six or seven friends and fill the trip with people you know. However, we have found with past trips that it can be equally rewarding to do it on your own and meet new people. Sometimes, the unlikeliest bonds happen over a long walk to a distant village or a glass (or two!) of wine on the terrace overlooking the Luberon. We'd like to make it easier for you and enjoyable for all.

So feel free to contact us and ask us any questions you may have. We hope that we'll be able to help you come up with your own trip of a lifetime.
