Cooking Vacations In Provence/Cote d'Azur

Have the vacation you’ve always dreamed of on our Provence food and wine tours!

Discover Provence on an amazing Provence cooking vacation with The International Kitchen! Savor delectable Provencal cuisine including bouillabaisse made from fish just brought to the market that morning. Visit a family goat farm to try their freshly made goat cheese, or an olive mill to taste just pressed oil. Enjoy our unique, hands-on Provence culinary tours and practice using local herbs—such as the famous Provencal lavender, rosemary, and thyme—and vegetables picked from the garden by your own hands. Sip fine Provencal wines while lounging in the southern sun on a terrace overlooking the very vineyards that produced them on our Provence wine tours.

Provence is the perfect destination for a food and wine tour of France. There is plenty to see in this famed region, including: Avignon with its famous bridge and the Popes’ Palace; Orange and its ancient Roman amphitheater; Arles with its Roman sites and the landscapes that inspired Van Gogh and Cezanne; Aix, with its vibrant boulevards and fountains; Marseille, one of France’s most lively cities; Nice and Cannes on the French Riviera, to name but a few. Couple these with the smaller villages like Cassis, Les Beaux-de-Provence, Gordes, Roussillon, Uzès, St. Remy, and Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, and you will discover the charms of Provencal life on our Provence food and wine tours.
