or Program 

or the Cost

In the South of France Spring comes earlier than the more northern countries and with the unfortunate advance of global warming Spring in general is officially coming two weeks ahead of times gone past .

We have therefore based the opening Photo Safaris to start from the first main change into Spring to just past the full bloom of the Lavender fields!

All shoots start and end on a Thursday and the start/end point for the tours is Marseilles Airport.

The available dates are:

Spring Early Summer

  • Starts Mid April and ends Mid July


  • Starts Last week in October and ends in the Second week in December

Each week is booked on a first come first served basis and reservations are not complete unless the deposits have been made. 

Non photographic partners are also very welcome to come and enjoy the place.

To book any of these weeks please request by e-mail for availability from : Here

A few words from Rod

The Above program has been organised so that you should be able to benefit from Three distinct areas:

1) Spend the maximum amount of time shooting great shots yet in comfort.

2) Experience the best of this part of Provence in a week.

3) Have your taste senses titillated by the mixture of French and local cuisine.

We have already experienced everything offered here and personally checked it out for you. We have thrown away the basic or the poor and kept only the best available! 

This doesn't mean that everything is 5 star, but we have taken the trouble to find the little details like where was the best home made ice cream in a particular area so you could try it. Or if there isn't anything that we feel acceptable in an area then we have provided it (.....obviously not the ice cream).
