    What to Expect
    Meet your guide in the morning in Nice and jump in your luxury Mercedes 8-seater van. Start your tour by traveling across a scenic seaside route to the town of Antibes. This charming town is located directly on the coast and is home to many mega-yachts, a stunning local market, and great views of the distant Alps.

    Then, you will drive towards the Loup Valley, considered as one of the most beautiful areas in the French Riviera. As you continue to travel through the area, the ordinary landscape will begin to turn into stunning rolling hills.

    From the Loup Valley, the trip will continue as you climb higher up the mountains. The coastal trees and plants will give way to heartier trees and shrubs that can live in the much colder environment as you approach 760 meters above sea level. The first stop of the destination will be the small village of Gourdon where you can enjoy one of the best panoramic views of the Alps and the Mediterranean sea and delicious food.

    On your journey to your next destination, your trip will take you through a scenic route featuring canyons, waterfalls, and other stunning natural features of the region, perfect for photographs. If you take this tour during the summer months of June or July, you may stop and your guide will show you some lavender fields dotting the hills before arriving at your second stop, the medieval village of Tourrettes sur Loup, the capital of the violet flower.

    In addition to walking the charming streets and enjoying time with locals, you will be able to enjoy local delicacies that feature violet flowers. Tourrettes sur Loup has many delicacies that utilize the flower such as crystallized violet flower petals and violet liqueur, but a must-try local favorite is violet ice cream.

    Finally, move towards your final destination: Saint Paul de Vence, located high in the mountains and overlooking the sea. This town attracted many artists such as Chagall and Matisse who were looking for inspiration for their art.

    From discovering small art galleries showcasing phenomenal to enjoying the architecture and medieval streets, you will never forget your trip to this stunning region.
