What to see and do with a week in Provence?

Here is a 7-day itinerary that covers a mix of historical sites, hilltop villages, and local markets.

You can stay in one spot and make day trips to each of these towns. A good choice is St-Rémy-de-Provence, a delightful, medium-sized town.  Everything here is within an hour drive of St-Remy.

Markets days are listed so you can coordinate your visit with the market day if you would like.

Keith and Val Van Sickle made their first trip to Provence decades ago, and it was love at first sight. After that, they came back every year until 2008, when they began a part-time life there, splitting their time between Provence and California.

Over the years, they’ve travelled all over Provence, seeing sights both well-known and obscure. Their French friends have introduced them to favourite restaurants and wineries and picnic spots and taught them funny local expressions (not all for polite company).

Keith now shares this local knowledge in his new book, An Insider’s Guide to Provence. Packed with the Van Sickles’ favourite things to see and do, it’s a must-have for anyone travelling to this glorious corner of France.

Keith previously published two books about the couple's experiences in Provence. One Sip at a Time: Learning to Live in Provence, and Are We French Yet?, both are available from Amazon.
