Truffle Hunting in the Southwest of France
This week is all about the mysterious black truffle. We will hunt for the elusive fungus with “Kiki” the pig. Other highlights include a visit to the caves of Pech Merle, tour the cliffs of Rocamadour, feast on multi-course truffle dinners, and visit two wineries for a tour and tasting.

Provence Discovery Tour
Provence is the land of Van Gogh, Cezanne, Peter Mayle, lavender fields, sunflowers, olive oil, and amazing food. You will feast on Bouillabaisse in Marseilles, visit the pope's palace in Avignon, taste wine in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, visit a goat cheese farm, and marvel at the quarry of lights in Les Baux, the most unique experience I have ever had in France. The farmer's market alone would be worth the trip.
