Are you a flower lover? An amateur Painter? Both? This is the time of year for you in Provence. The poppy tour is like living with a painter’s palette. Everywhere you go, you will be dazzled by lush valleys and an array of wild flowers – most notably the poppy.

The Poppy tour takes place during an optimal time in Provence; the weather has hints of summer but it’s not too hot, outdoor café lunches and picnics are scheduled everyday and you can still avoid the crowds – unlike July and August when it’s hard to find a place to sit and/or you are looking for the A/C .

Mas Amor will cater to all your interests.

We can even set time aside in my favorite inspiring spots to sketch, paint or just write a few poetic lines. This trip is all about fresh air and inspiring thoughts – all the things that Provence will naturally surround you with.

  • Moments in the poppy fields for those stunning pictures
  • Regional produce in abundance at farmer’s markets
  • A special discovery of the herbs of Provence with local growers
  • Visits to “Remarkable” gardens (a label given in France to certain gardens)
  • Possibility for cooking lesson with market tour and/or herb picking in the wilderness
  • Gourmet discoveries everyday (crystallized fruit, herbs of Provence, artisan chocolate, local goat cheese, wineries, honey makers and olive oil mills)

Just a few of my favorite spots on this Spring Poppy Tour:

  • Ansouis
  • Venasque
  • Isle sur la Sorgue
  • Menerbes
  • Pernes-les-Fontaine
  • Abbey Saint-Hilaire

Together we will explore the land, soak up the sunshine, take stunning pictures, and experience the art of Provencal living among the poppies.
