Provence is an antiques shopper's paradise!
Join us for a week visiting charming Provence villages... meandering through antique shops and outdoor markets filled with antique treasures -- home furniture, home accessories, rugs, jewelry & watches, dishes, porcelain, silverware, copperware & cooking pans, antique linens, paintings, posters, garden furniture, outdoor pots & statues.
This is a fabulous trip for professional decorators & home decorating enthusiasts... and for friends looking for a fun-filled South of France fall get-away excursion.
Our local antiques expert will guide us through many of the best antiques markets in Provence... including Villeneuve-lès-Avignon, Avignon, Aix en Provence and Nîmes... with the highlight being Isle-sur-Sorgue, considered to be Europe's 3rd largest antique center, only behind London and Paris, with more than 300 antique shops!
You'll be amazed by the many treasures you'll discover and how far your money goes in France!
No worries about shipping arrangements. Shipping for your purchases will be handled by our local Provence partners. They will coordinate your purchases from different markets and vendors to be sent to your home or business in one consolidated shipment.
We’ll be based for six nights in Villeneuve-lès-Avignon, the charming medieval village located across the Rhône River from Avignon, the historic and preserved UNESCO World Heritage city that is the gateway city to Provence.
The trip includes many extras -- a welcome reception with Côtes du Rhône wines and Provence hors d'oeuvres... French Provencal cooking class and meal with a celebrated local chef... farewell dinner with traditional French cuisine and local wines.
Optional before breakfast group pleasure walks through Villeneuve-lès-Avignon and along the Rhône River are organized for travelers who want some morning exercise before starting their vacation day.
