A Taste of Provence

A Taste of Provence
Provence France

A trail ride in the heart of Provence, country of sunlight and fragrances, at the time of year painters and all artists prefer. Come discover all the landscapes painted by Cezanne. A week dedicated to trail riding in the beautiful Provence landscapes and villages, tasting the Mediterranean food with the local people who have more time to share with you. This is an introduction to the Luberon Regional Nature Park, combined with some interesting sight-seeing and gourmet days.

On the third day you will follow in the footsteps of Cezanne by minibus. You will enjoy a nice view of the Montagne Sainte-Victoire, painted many times by Cézanne, and visit his studio. You will then spend the rest of your morning in the famous Aix-en-Provence street market - the best place to buy local products and handcrafts. The morning of the fifth day is dedicated to the discovery of all the famous local produce.

You will thus exercise your palate at the Mas, around a good fire. You will taste olive oil and olives, honey, grilled chestnuts in the fireplace, and everyone will be able to participate in preparing a wonderful Provence lunch. We will make the famous truffle omelette together that you will then share for lunch with delicious local wine!

The discovery of these beautiful landscapes and friendly faces make beginners' fears soon disappear. The kindness of the horses allows a rapid development of the rider in all gaits suitable for trail riding (walk, trot and canter). A two day trail at the end of the stay (only during high season) will give you a taste of traveling long distance on horseback.

French language Course:
If you are interested, you will receive two hours of formal French lessons each day, and every effort will be made to speak French with you throughout each day and evening. Total immersion in riding, language and culture!
