Provence-2013-6995   Provence shiatsu


Surrounded by hills and purple lavender fields, within walking distance of the village of Viens, where peace and silence reign, away from the tourist crowds we house in the Bergerie: a true Bergerie: when you follow the path down the hill you will get to the sheep stable.. The Bergerie houses a pretty cool yoga room in stone and wood, (however the morning yoga will be outside…) and a simple kitchen and indoor dining area. Age-old chestnut trees provide shade … You can sleep in the nearby Bead and Breakfast or in the Bergerie L’ AUMADE, in roulottes, or in your own tent. An old pond with water will give us some refreshment on hot days

Why go to the Provence?

Well we love warm weather and this time the weather is warm, yet not too dry. Moreover it is easy to reach by car, by TGV (Brussels-Avignon in 5 hours) from there onwards it is another 70 km. The village of Apt is at 17 km.
Why this time? Because the lavender fields are in full bloom, giving away their beautiful fragnances, just before the harvest end of July. It is warm, but not too dry so it is perfect for walking ….. in short, a refreshing relaxing holiday with delicious and healthy meals.

How to get there

By car, by train (TGV to Avignon) then go by bus to Viens.
By Car: Go to Avignon, we will wend more info upon inscription. We did the trip from Antwerp in two days and slept in a campsite or B & B overnight. We drove 5 hours on Saturday, then relaxed and jumped in a pool or lake and continued the next day. Thus the journey too was very, very relaxing. We are happy to give you free advice However book in time !
