September 4 – 11, 2021: Based near the ochre cliffs of Roussillon in the Luberon Valley. The tour itinerary includes visits to the Alpilles to the hilltop castle of Les Baux de Provence, the Carrieres de Lumieres and a chance to explore charming Saint Remy.

Why Book with Tessa Baker?

Tessa has a twinkle in her eyes and a warm, comfortable style. Meeting her for the first time, I felt like I had known her forever. Born in London, Tessa lived with her parents and four sisters in the English countryside village of Rousham. Her creative education included Chelsea School of Art and later at Slade School of Fine Arts. Tessa’s artistic interests sparked working with her mother on theatre set designs. However, her father determined that she needed a practical profession and sent her to Switzerland to train as a chef. Both educational paths have served her well, she has painted for over 30 years, and she has proven culinary talents. Read more about Tessa’s background here.
