Plan your visit to our region around our cultural and outdoor exploration tours...

Hike through Provençal olive groves with hundred year old trees and continue your exploration along the banks of the Siagne River and discover the abandoned stone olive mills from the early 20th century, while learning the history of olive cultivation and its importance in the Provencal culture.


The region is dotted with medieval hilltop villages, each with its own history and spectacular views over the Esterel Mountain Range. Travel from village to village on mountain bike and learn more about the local history and local architecture. Combine improving your French with an initiation to French cooking by a practicing chef. Learn to select fresh ingredients from the local markets, and turn them into a special meal, improve your vocabulary and understanding of the language and customs at the same time. Or maybe its time for a healthy holiday. Enjoy fresh, tasty, healthy local foods, combined with yoga personal training, relaxing massages, aromatherapy, a beautician, and a certified guide to lead you through the local hills and visit local caves. Day tours begin as low as 25€ per person for groups of 8-10 participants and are led by multilingual licensed and certified mountain guides who are happy to share their first-hand knowledge of the region with you. We can custom-design a multi-activity holiday for you, your friends, a club, company or family.
