Who and where I am ?

My name is Alain, and I lead, "Ventoux Découvertes", a small private tour company of a human size located near Avignon in Provence, southern France.

-I am a driver guide, and I am trained about my region or city so that I can provide commentary in English during the driving portions of your tour, I do not provide walking tours or tours inside historical sights or museums. I am not {{a licensed guide}} who can tell the visitors all the precise details and anecdotes of the last 2000 years of France's history, let's consider it 'light' commenting, including comments about today's France.
 

What I do for you? 

My aim is to make you visit Provence or other parts of southern France comfortably and convivially.All my Provence tours are personalised to your wishes. I can make suggestions for what to visit. 

 

 

Where I take you sightseeing

Many tourists like to visit the quaint villages of the Luberon: Gordes, Roussillon, Bonnieux, Lacoste, Fontaine de Vaucluse, l'Isle sur la Sorgue, Oppède le Vieux, Ménerbes... Peter Mayle made the Luberon famous with his book A Year in Provence. The many local food and antique markets are worth a visit, and so is the Sénanque Abbey.

From June to August, many like to see the coloured landscapes of Provence's lavender and sunflower fields.

Wine tours of famous vineyards such as Châteauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, Beaumes de Venise, Vacqueyras or Côtes du Rhône are also popular.

Hikers, bikers, and other nature lovers will be spoiled with the three natural parks la Camargue and its exceptional wildlife, the Luberon and its unspoiled nature, and the Alpilles.

The most courageous bikers try to follow the path of the Tour de France and climb the Mont Ventoux. Others use a car, but it is not for those with a fear of heights and no crash barriers.

Rhône river cruise passenger stopping in Avignon often visit the Roman arena in Nimes, the Roman aqueduct Pont du Gard, and the historic city of Uzès. Of course, many visit Avignon itself to see its historic Pope Palace and the Pont d'Avignon that ends in the middle of the Rhône.

Roman ruin lovers struggle to find time to see all the ruins: amphitheatres in Arles and Nimes, Maison Carrée in Nimes, Pont du Gard, Glanum in Saint Rémy de Provence, the theatre in Orange, Vaison la Romaine, Pont Julien, and several remains of small aqueducts in the Alpilles.

 

 

I have many years' experience in Provence and the rest of southern France.
