Infos & Booking


During this stay in the South of France, I invite you to discover the literary Provence. The one where many writers have lived, stayed and left their mark, in order to give free rein to our literary hikes.

Jean Giono, Marcel Pagnol, Albert Camus, Henri Bosco, Alphonse Daudet, Frédéric Mistral, Jean-Claude Izzo, Alexandre Dumas... many are those who have written down their  adventures in Provence in black and white.

I will try to pass on to you this great human experience. The hikes, in carefully chosen sites, will be punctuated by reading breaks. The text and its surroundings will enhance each other and give the hike a special poetic dimension. This way of getting in touch with the work of an author allows you to discover Provence in a singular way, far from the beaten track.

From the Lubéron to the Alpilles, via the famous and spectacular Calanques of Marseille, come and walk in the footsteps of the writers.
