EXPERIENCES

Unique Splendours of Southern France

With its charming culture, world-class architecture and mouth-watering cuisine, there is no doubt that France will seduce you. Experience the irresistible region of Provence, home to lavender fields, olive groves, striking mountains and the Mediterranean coastline before an adventure to magnificent Corsica.

When to go:
May – October

Embark on your Provincial adventure surrounded by the sun-kissed stone walls of Arles, ranked highly as one of France’s loveliest cities. Blessed with a small-town feel with narrow winding streets, take time exploring brilliant art and history museums, the extraordinary Roman amphitheater and indulge in world-class restaurants. Discover the Camargue Salt Flats; Western Europe’s largest river delta teeming with vibrant red salt lagoons, reedy marshes and rice paddies. Home to herds of wild white Camargue horses, pink flamingos and black bulls raised by Europe’s only cowboys for bullring fighting, this natural region will not cease to amaze! Traverse this endearing playground on horseback, quad bike and horse-drawn carriage, or take to the skies with PELORUS in an exclusive helicopter flight to delight in majestic aerial vistas.

Journey to the Verdon Gorge National Park, a UNESCO listed site rich in dramatic landscapes and picturesque French villages. The combination of turquoise blue water, limestone cliffs and surrounding untamed beauty makes this canyon one of Provence’s most magical natural sites. With outdoor opportunities for everyone, enjoy first-class hiking and cycling or gain a different perspective by canoeing the mesmerising Verdonian waters. For more adrenaline, paraglide past sheer cliffs keeping your eyes peeled for griffon vultures, or uncover the spectacular scenery from above in a private hot air balloon adventure.

Unearth the wonderful island of Corsica; a land steeped in history and brimming with astounding geographical diversity. Picture glistening bays, buzzing coastal towns, dramatic mountain ridges, verdant forests and ancient hilltop villages. Relax in Corsica’s southern town of Porto Vecchio which boasts a charming maze of streets and one of Europe’s most distinguished harbours, bustling with delightful pavement cafes and waterfront restaurants.

To maximise your island experience, venture to the glorious beaches of Palombaggia, Santa Giulia and Rondinara for a taste of utter paradise. Enjoy watersports, swimming, surfing in the calm, crystal clear waters and go horseback riding at dawn to soak up the peaceful environment. Drive inland to the spectacular Col de Bavella and marvel at one of the most striking passes on the island. Delight in superb views across vast forest, ocean and mountains before exploring more on foot as you hike the network of mountain trails. For a heart-pumping experience, challenge yourself at canyoning – Corsica is a world-class destination for this activity. Accompanied by an expert team of instructors, follow the waterways of a beautiful canyon, swim, rock climb, jump and shoot down natural rock waterslides.
