With a little guidance from the locals, you’re in heaven on earth. And with Le Trip, you will come to know the real France, to experience the heartwarming welcome of local artisans, winemakers, and designers – the people who carry on the tradition of excellence here and who assure its continuity. Expect to discover uncommon beauty and charm seldom encountered by visitors.

When traveling in our company, rather than surveying the country from a distance or taking commonplace snapshots, you will be “living” and feeling Provence as the Provencals do. You will dine in their restaurants, drink their wines, their olive oils, pastis, and absinth. You will breathe the pure air of their hills, and take part in their fetes. You will discover privileged places, share in their stories and their culture. Rather than visiting Provence as a tourist, you will know it as a privileged guest.

The focus of Le Trip travel is two-fold:  vintage shopping and food & wine tours.  Both themes sprang from professional experience.  Jill Mitchell, owner of Le Trip, comes from a wine making family in California, and has served as head chef at her family winery.  Jill is now a French vintage/antique dealer.  Her background brings a richness to her clients’ experiences, as well as a superb mix of  appointments to the itinerary.

The buzzword for Le Trip is inclusive.  Solo travelers are always welcome and are warmly integrated into the group.  And in kind, our groups always receive open arm welcomes by our local friends.
