My name is Aurore（中国名字就是阳光）and I was born and raised in Avignon, a medieval city in Provence. I lived abroad for the past 10 years, among which I spent about 4 years in China. China and its people have remained close to my heart ever since. I would love to finally give back a bit of the warm welcome I received in China myself.
As I am now back to my hometown in Provence, I wish to help welcome Chinese visitors here: the south of France is one of the most beautiful place on Earth to me and I'm looking forward to showing you my region.
Have a look at the kind of tours I'm offering and get in touch with me if you are interested. This website is merely a sample of what's possible, but the reality offers many more options: feel free to ask me for a quote or any question you might have!
I'd like to help Chinese people explore my region by giving them full access to local attractions that international travellers can sometimes find hard to find, or slightly discouraging to organise.
As a professional in the tourist industry and former traveller myself, I know that travelling a foreign land can prove quite challenging. From transportation to accommodation to exploring local culture, everything gets more complicated because nothing looks familiar: foreign language, foreign land, foreign history and culture, foreign online practices, foreign means of payment....
I would like to make all this easier for Chinese people travelling my region. My goal is to facilitate your tour in Provence, basically by acting both as your local tour guide and as your travel agent, for a low fee (see below "What service do I provide").
Beyond merely going through the main tourist attractions, my mission is to help you get a hint of what Provence actually looks like, smells like, feels like and sounds like to local people like me. I'd like to help you experience this place and gain a deeper understanding of the sites and destinations we visit, by living yourself like a local, even for a short while. Below is a sample of the kind of tours I'm offering. If you’d like to tour with me, please get in touch so I can start creating the perfect itinerary for you!
If you're staying longer, I also offer two longer tours a la carte
The first tour I called "The Romantic route" is a laid-back Road trip across the best spots and activities in Provence that can last between 3 and 6 days depending on how much of the region you'd like to see. I made a list the best places to see and the best things to do in my home region during the summer: just pick which ones you like best and I'll take care of the rest! See more below.
The second tour, the "Green Trail" focuses more on sport, nature and exploration. The Provence region is home to some of the most beautiful natural landscapes in the world, that have inspired hundreds of famous artists across the ages: let's take our bike (or our own two feet) and go explore them the French way!
You decide and explore Provence your own way!
