Chic Provence Design Tour Printemps 2013!

With winter's chill just a whisper away, it's time again to plan a Provence tour in the spring! Nothing will put you in better spirits than knowing that you, cheriewill be exploring Provençal markets, chic shops and brocantes to your heart's content. And that you will experience Provençal life and its many beautiful aspects from a designer's point of view, knowing that every detail is taken care of for you. A little luxury on a Provence tour that will soothe the soul.

We are so excited to announce our third annual springtime Chic Provence Tour to the heart of Provence,  for May 4 -11, 2013. You will find incomparable inspiration for your Provence design ideas and projects on our tour in the company of like-minded souls!

C'est fantastique! Cherie, you must join us! You know you want to. You need this trip! You must enjoy a Provence Tour this 2013!

Last year we sold out very quickly, so be sure to let me know if you want to join us on this truly incredible weeklong Provence tour.

We'll have an incredible restored ancient farmhouse villa for our home base, and every morning after our cafe au lait and fresh croissants, we'll head out to shop the Provençal markets, antiques markets and shops in l'Isle sur la Sorgue, St. Remy and Aix-en-Provence. If you need shipping, we connect you with your own shipper. We'll have a cooking class in an exquisite 13th C. chateau in Avignon. We'll explore the hillside villages of the Luberon. And every night after aperitifs we'll have an incredible dinner chez nous prepared by our own wonderful French chef with complementary wines selected for the dinner. Everything is taken care of for you... we'll pick you up at the train station in Avignon and pamper you from then on. 

You MUST come with us next time on the Chic Provence Tour!

no Provence tour is complete without it...
can you smell the lavender yet?


  1. It looks just heavenly Kit, I could do with a bit of that, but I'm planning nothing while my mother is infirm. My spirit will be with you, drinking early morning coffee outside, drinking it all in...

  2. Kit you know I would love to go!! It is like a dream trip! Another time perhaps!!


  3. Hello Kit! Your travel is like a dream! I would love it! Best wishes! Geli

  4. I am obsessed with these photos!!!!

  5. This is the perfect way to see this most beautiful part of Provence without having any need to plan, worry, or wonder whether you've seen the "right" villages or eaten in the best restaurants. You can sit back and simply enjoy the incredible itinerary. May is the perfect time of year for it too! I live in Aix-en-Provence and if I didn't I would have loved to go on this fantastic trip. Kit, if anyone falls for the Luberon, Aix, or Saint Remy and l'Ile sur la Sorgue and is interested in perhaps buying property here I'd be happy to speak to them without any obligations. I'm an exclusive buyer's agent, I don't sell properties, so am entirely independent and can give unbiased advice. I'm also a member of the New York Bar and have an American husband, so I fully understand American wishes and dreams!

    Have a lovely time in May.

    Kind regards,

  6. Everything looks so beautiful in Provence and your trip will be wonderful! Happy New Year!
    love and best wishes

  7. Lovely photos! I am obsessed with the ornate bed frame in the guest bedroom. So pretty. I would die to have that in my bedroom right now. It would go so perfectly with these sheets I have on my bed now.

  8. We were just in Isle-sur-la-Sorgue a few months ago... what a gorgeous place! I fell in love.... The folks on your tour are quite lucky, and kudos on the gorgeous photos!

  9. Wonderful pictures. Thanks for sharing!!!
