About Us – Voyages in Provence, France

Voyages in Provence (V.I.P.) is a subsidiary of Travel Gingie's Way.  "Gingie," as the company founder is known by many, was introduced to the travel industry while studying French at Paris University in the mid-60s. Being an accomplished linguist and licensed guide lecturer, as well as an art historian in the British Isles and Europe, Ms. deGroot decided to start her own educational travel company in the mid eighties. Since then she has not looked back. Her company has grown through repeat clientele and recommendations.

V.I.P. has established a fully operational office near Avignon, the capital of Vaucluse, which is the home of the 14th century Papal palace as well as the centre of the annual summer festival which features theatre, music and dance in particularly during the month of July.

As we have fallen in love with Provence and especially with the region of Vaucluse, we are keen to take you on a tour of discoveries both for the eye, soul and palate and share with us the wonders of nature, colors and historical monuments. It is not surprising that the Romans established themselves here over 2000 years ago and made this corner of France the first European extension of their mighty Empire.

Where does the wine taste better here? Where are the olives more delicious and the light more magic than here? Yes, light, that is surely why artists wanted to immortalize their impression of this blessed land. Why then not walk in the footsteps of artists such as Cezanne, van Gogh, Gaugin, Matisse, Renoir and so many others who were inspired by the beauty of Provence.

Come and join us for ‘Quality time in Provence’. Be bewildered, if not bewitched, by the wonders of southern France and fall in love again, as we have done over and over again with this region where the sun flowers will welcome you with a smile. Where the smell of "herbes de Provence" and the magic of lavender easily seduces you, and where music fills the air as each season is a festival (especially between May and October when we offer the majority of our travel programs).
