Nice: Private 8-Hour Aix En Provence and Wine Tasting

After departing from Nice, you will make your way to Aix en Provence. Throughout this journey you will see Mount Saint Victoire, which was the inspiration for many of Paul Cézanne’s works. Aix en Provence is a little college town in southern France, but you don’t have to be a student to enjoy your time there. The provincial area is the perfect getaway from the bustling city. You will be free to walk around the peaceful gardens, shop at local markets, or admire the old town. The picturesque boulevard the "Cours Mirabeau" is perfect for a lovely stroll and to get lunch. Provence is home to winegrowers who bear the imprint of the soil and make wines that truly reflect the terroir. You will enjoy the Provencal "art de vivre" lifestyle, and will also visit the Chateau Sainte Roseline, which is home to more than one point of interest. The estate is big, and is home to the well-known Cotes de Provence wine producer whose wines are both appreciated locally as well as exported. This area is also a historic site, being close to the Roman chapel Ste. Roseline which was built in the 12th century.

Fantastic Guide with Amazing Local Knowledge - Great Experience

Our guide, Jacques, was amazing -- he had been living in Cannes area for more than 28 yrs. and held a very prestigious degree in Art History, as well as serving as a Professor in the same for many years. His life experiences outside of these areas also made for a fascinating discussion. He was incredibly knowledgeable and kind (and in particular patient and helpful with our 3- and 6-year olds). In addition to seeing ancient Roman ruins on the sight of one of the vineyards, we also visited a medieval city, complete with 13th century gate/port, winding streets, and a very peaceful stroll down the hill to the modern portion where we ate lunch. We would definitely recommend this trip for anyone looking to enjoy some great wines and a good dose of local Provence culture!

Excellent guide and delightful tour

We very much enjoyed our tour. Jacques is an incredibly knowledgeable man who entertained us very well and the vineyards were all beautiful and staff all very welcoming. Jacques seemed to have access to all the hidden gems at each location which is worth more than money can buy. Tasted and bought some lovely whites, rose’s and reds plus tapenades and at Chateau St Martin the most delicious aperitif Vin Cuit.

We loved this wine excursion in the Var, because indeed apart from the remarkable domains that we visited, our guide Jacques by his kindness, his knowledge and multiple experiences brought historical, cultural and personal touches which made these visits and tastings amazed us. A mention for Château Font de Broc which is exceptional. Thank you Jacques for these wonderful moments that you made us live

Great guide and tour, with a few drawbacks.

This guide and his tour were very interesting, however, he needs to be aware of scent sensitivities. His scent and that of his vehicle made two of our party unwell and yet he continued to deny that it was possible.

Jacque was a great guide and the wineries were beautiful.
