Provence Confidential, an exclusive made-to-measure excursion planner, has just opened its doors. The high-end concierge service recommends customized day trips in the south of France. Because Provence is best seen from behind the scenes, the outings proposed are all about discovering the authentic villages, products, cuisine and traditions that Provence has to offer. The company operates between Arles, Avignon, Marseille, Toulon and Aix en Provence. They continually research the best places to be visited and the best places to eat. Provence Confidential thinks of the suppliers they work with as partners who share the same vision. Vintners, chefs and artisans in Provence are passionate about their region and Provence Confidential works with those who believe in sharing that passion. Provence Confidential is targeting both the luxury villa renters who spend one or more weeks in Provence each summer as well as individual tourists who are one of 3.5 million tourists who visited the Provence Alps Cotes d[sup.1]Azur region in 2007. With direct flights to Marseille from Toronto and Montreal from April through October the company hopes to attract a large Canadian clientele.
