Unique Provence by Kairos Travel



The Luberon region and its villages are celebrated in this tour, with a stop by Avignon, Arles and Les Baux de Provence. So, which trip will you choose?

Of course, fine dining will also be on the menu and will take the little group to the most privileged addresses with a number of choices that will provide quite a dilemma: we must choose between the region of Grasse and Nice, slip over to Saint-Rémy de Provence, Arles and Avignon, or stay in Aix and head right to the coast… The second tour “Experience & Authenticity” brings together 8 to 12 people around the discovery of Haute Provence: olive oil producers and local farmers welcome the group who can create their own perfume and escape on a hike!

L'OCCITANE associates with Kairos, a travel agency founded by Philip Haslett, an Englishman who boasts over 25 years experience in the realm of tourism in Provence. Customized service and a perfect knowledge of the region make Kairos a special partner for original vacations, open to Americans, British, Brazilians, but any nationality can apply. Both itineraries are devoted to authentic experiences, and it will be difficult for you to choose. The first “Exception & Authenticity” is a very private tour since it involves just 6 people. Lavender is the guiding principle as visitors embark on a journey of discovery of the fields’ blue gold omnipresent in Provence and meet the farmers.

Since the beginning of its journey, L’OCCITANE's philosophy is based on sharing the beauties of Provence. With Kairos, the French brand based in Manosque found the perfect guide to its inspirations and precious addresses. The result? Two guided itineraries on themes dear to the brand founded by Olivier Baussan in 1976: the Haute Provence, the birthplace of the L’OCCITANE en Provence adventure, and of course, lavender, the emblem of the region. The visitor is invited to experience a genuine immersion into the L’OCCITANE’s inspirations, inspirations that will lead you to the very essence of Provence. An authentic visit, surprising, and true, just like the company.
