10 Days in Provence
along the French Riviera
with Karen Gros

June 18th - June 28th, 2014 (Openings)

Exclusive tour for a small group of up to 8 people

LET'S GO GREEN...all of Karen's trips include carbon offsets for the flight portion of your trip. In the same vein, we will visit & dine at a working organic farm, visit farmers' markets, eat seasonally everyday, & enjoy local specialties.


The French Riviera, or Côte d'Azur, has the glitz and glamour rivaled by few places on earth. Although the Riviera is famous for the glamour of St. Tropez, Monaco, and the Cannes Film Festival, there are many other less well known attractions which you will discover with Karen.
