Daily yoga classes, trips to local villages, picnic lunches and a cooking class highlight Eurobound’s newest vacation package to Provence. The 7-day/6-night land package is designed for clients who want an intimate vacation that is at once relaxing and active.
Home for the week is a comfortable historic, completely refurbished Bed and Breakfast village house in St. Jeannet, midway between Nice and Vence. The villa is run by a young couple whose emphasis is on ecology, environmentally-friendly practices, and locally sourced, organic ingredients.
Yoga, Private Touring, Picnics, Local Cuisine
Most days begin with a yoga class, followed by breakfast. The remainder of each day is devoted to a different activity, ranging from a cooking class, a wine tasting, and a walk to the top of the cliff that overlooks the village for a panoramic view of the coast and French Alps; to scenic drives and excursions along the French Riviera. Depending on the day, lunch is either picnic style or in a local restaurant. Early evening usually concludes with another yoga class, to stretch out any tight muscles.
Excursions, led by a licensed guide, include Antibes, St. Paul de Vence and Vence, with Henri Matisse’s stained glass windows in the Chapelle du Rosaire; Tourettes sur Loup, a medieval village and home to artists’ workshops and galleries; Nice, with its old city and market; Villefranche, on the Cote D’Azur; St. Jean Cap Ferrat; Monaco; and the village of Eze. Complementing the touring are a fresh goat-cheese sampling at Domaine des Courmettes and wine tasting at St. Jeannette’s local vineyard.
An Intimate Experience
The Eurobound package is available for small groups of from 4-to-8 persons. “This vacation is well-suited for two couples, a group of friends, a family, or a small incentive or special group,” says (Brigitte Armand, Eurobound president. “It’s an intimate and immersive experience, with an opportunity to sample local life,” she adds.
