Trip Summary

These luxurious three and four day breaks have been designed with the ultimate decadence in mind. Based at the sumptuous and traditionally French 5* Villa Gallici in the charming town of Aix-en-Provence, check into your preferred room grade on the first afternoon of your trip.

After settling in, start your trip in style with a unique private wine tasting in the hotel’s wine cellar. In the company of a fascinating and insightful sommelier, taste five local wines in an incredible setting. The evening will then be free to relax and do as you please.

On day two, you will be met at the hotel by an English-speaking specialist driver/guide, who will accompany you throughout the day on a private basis. Not only is Aix-en-Provence home to some of the world’s greatest rosés (and some superb reds and whites too), the area is also famous for the beautiful Mont Saint Victoire, a feature of many of the painter Cézanne’s masterpieces. As well as having plenty of time to admire the spectacular scenery, you will also be welcomed at three wineries for full tours and tastings. You will have free time for lunch today, and your guide will be very pleased to recommend a suitable restaurant depending on how hungry you are feeling on the day.

After being taken back to the hotel for some time to relax and freshen up, a three course dinner will be served in the hotel’s fabulously elegant dining room. Drinks have not been included as part of the package, and can be ordered and paid for locally on the evening.

For those staying a third night, your guide will return to the hotel on the morning of day three, and accompany you on a second day of wine tasting. The morning will be spent discovering the wines of Bandol, where you will visit a premium winery to taste extensive examples of the region’s white Clairette, red Mourvèdre and premium blend rosé wines. You will then have free time for lunch in the postcard-pretty port of Cassis. In the afternoon, you will discover the wines of the Cassis appellation, with a tour and tasting at two local wineries. Cassis is particularly revered for its elegant white wines, made principally from Clairette and Marsanne.

You will be taken back to the hotel at the end of the day, and your final evening will be free to enjoy the town before checking out of the hotel on day four.
