Small Group Cultural and Creative Provence Tours with award winning author Jamie Ivey

My name is Jamie Ivey. I came to Provence thirteen years ago to write a series of travel books about rosé. I live in the Luberon village of Lourmarin with my wife and three daughters who were all born in Provence. My latest book is the new

Moon Guide to Provence.

The Moon Guide is a comprehensive guide to all things Provencal including history, culture, sights, art galleries, hotels, vineyards and restaurants. Writing the book inspired me to offer Provence Tours. My small group Best of Provence Tour takes in all my favourite places. In addition I am delighted to have partnered with internationally renowned artist and photographer Daniel Adel, to offer the Provence Guru Creative Provence experience.


Our base for the Best of Provence Tour and Creative Provence Experience:

My tours will be based in the Luberon regional nature park in the heart of Provence. The Luberon is famous for its hill villages and beautiful wild countryside. It is a great base from which to explore the rest of Provence. Aix, Arles, Avignon and the coast are all within easy reach. We will stay on a winery  – Chateau Constantin which is located 1km outside the village of Lourmarin. Lourmarin is one of the most celebrated villages in Provence. It’s full of restaurants, cafes, art galleries and boutiques and it never fails to seduce visitors with its abundance of Provencal charm. Chateau Constantin is an 18th century wine estate that produces some of the finest wines in the Luberon region of Provence. The property has been recently refurbished and offers historic charm combined with modern luxuries. The Chateau is such a wonderful place, that you may even want to opt out of the tour altogether for a day, to relax by the pool, play tennis, explore Lourmarin, take an e-bike ride, or enjoy a hike into the hills. For me choice is everything when touring.
