We give you practical information regarding the villages along the way, where to buy picnic fare, get the best bottle of wine & olive oil and our favourite addresses; we include our own selection of restaurants, wine estates, olive oil mills, and other places of interest and “must see” visits.

We also include historical & cultural information about the towns visited, monuments passed, as well as information about local plants and wildlife, geology, agriculture, and all sorts of other interesting topics along the way.

Local Cuisine

Visit local markets and get delicious Provençal specialities for your picnic along the trails!

After your picnic along the trails, don’t forget to stretch out on the thyme-laden hills, slip your backpacks behind your heads, hat over your eyes, and let the chant of cicadas soothe us into a sleep: SIESTA time.
