This unique experience will make you enjoy the best Provence’s soil has to offer. Forget
about the crowded hilltop villages for today and give yourself over to the delights of this
one-of-a kind picnic.
I will pick you up at your hotel at 10.00. First you will visit an olive oil mill followed with a
tasting to introduce your taste bud with our local liquid gold.
Then we will head up to a vineyard in the heart of Les Alpilles! There, the winemaker
himself will provide exclusive tour, which will be followed by a tasting, including AOC
wines and vintage, highly sophisticated labels.
Now that your stomach is ready for lunch, it’s time to go to he picnic location…
Set in the heart of a vineyard, surrounded by olive trees or beneath an almond tree, a
famous chef will prepare you a gourmet meal.
An elegant table and cool coupe of champagne awaits you for this country style (but still
Your chef of day will only use fresh, local and seasonable products
only, the picnic will be served with wines of course. An alternative and bucolic way to enjoy
our local gastronomy.
After such a gourmet day, all you’ll have to do left is to seat in the car enjoying the AC while experiencing a scenic drive toward the location of your hotel.
To complete the day how about learning to play the traditional Provencal balls game called Petanque ? Your call ?!
Gorgeous landscapes, great food and wines, what a perfect way to experience Provence.
The day ends around 5:30 pm or later if you decide to play petanque.
Born and raised in Arles—and fluent in English—I am un vrai Provencal…a real native! After spending few years living alongside the Mediterranean cost (Marseille, Hyeres, Antibes), I decided to leave home. My adventure started with the USA and New-York, followed with Sweden and finishing up with London, where I lived for over 4 years. But I then was ready to come home and I decided I’d set up business helping people visiting Provence and the Camargue to make the very most out of it. Passionate about food and wine, I created I Am Not a Tourist, offering day tours and authentic travel experiences following various seasons and themes. My goal? To help you discover the region through tasting and meeting local producers. If you fancy a chic gourmet experience, I can organize one-of-a-kind picnic prepared by Michelin starred chefs. Or a county-style lunch in the heart of a vineyard, with your own private chef. I also offer general day tours and I am very well versed in local culture, history and more. Plus, since I run a second company which edits and publish local tourist guides, I know all the best shops and restaurants—so let me recommend as I am sure you will enjoy these places as much as I do! My car holds up to 8 passengers. Prices begin at 380€ per day for a couple. Gourmet experiences are priced based on the number of people and the complexity of the lunch.
