YOUR WORLD AND NATURE
Provence has some of the most beautiful places to discover. The best way to see it is while performing an activity that takes you out into the depths of the countryside.
From the waters to the tracks and canyon paths, you will find each outing breathtaking.
Open to all levels of participants but geared to the "entry" and "intermediate" level, you will find the outings challenging enough to feel that you've had a good day out.
TESTING YOUR LIMITS?
Testing you limits can help you rediscover what your body can do, going beyond the "I can't do it" point and achieving what you set your mind to do.
Challenging yourself on canyoning trips and rock climbing expeditions in Provence can prove to be exhilarating. There is great fun to be had in going as a group and conquering your fears.
At the end of the day, tired and satisfied, you can always relax on a poolside lounger or near the open fireplace, a glass of wine in hand at our living base of La Colle en Provence.
Our local knowledge counts deeply in allowing you to see and experience, saving you much exploration time.
From the centuries-old cities and villages to the picturesque lakes, mountains and rivers. Most people think that the little strip of the coast by the Med is Provence. It is, however, vast, stretching from the Cote d'Azur to well up the Alps. It takes nearly three hours to drive across up the Autoroute to its Northern boundary.
It also takes three to four hours to cross from East to West. Discovering the beauties of this area takes a lot of time and therefore having a helping hand to see these gems saves you a lot of time.
From our base, we are well situated to get to any part of Provence, from deep into the mountains to the sea, as well as all the major cities: Marseille (Airport), Aix en Provence (TGV) and Avignon (TGV), though the network of autoroutes.
You can experience the local areas, see some of the key sites and, most importantly, see the beauty of Provence all from the comfort of our La Colle en Provence base.
Discover the pleasure of our swimming pool, local trips to the Forcalquier market and see some of the most beautiful areas of this part of Provence so encapsulated by the world's leading artists: Van Gogh, Cezanne, Giono and much more. Even Turner has been here... There are over 27 artists, "Ateliers" in Forcalquier alone, Seven hairdressers, and a whole host of restaurants and Boulangaries.
