An original and vibrant way to discover the region. From Provence des Papes to the Luberon, artists and craftspeople will welcome you to their workshops all year round to share their passion with you. Step inside and expand your horizons.
Provence is a land of varied colours and strong identities. A land of lavender, of heritage and of stories just waiting to be discovered. The Provençal lifestyle and landscapes have persuaded Popes, writers and artists to make the region their home.
The Pays des Sorgues is situated between Provence des Papes (the Avignon region), Provence des lavandes (Mont-Ventoux) and Provence du Luberon, an area full of colour. With its colourful markets and local traditions and the river running through it, the Pays des Sorgues offers a wonderful combination of beautiful landscapes and Provençal “joie de vivre”.
Celtina is passionate about her profession, and Guillaume about the region of his birth. The two of them decided to combine their talents and welcome international visitors for an unforgettable experience in Provence. This experience is designed by you and Celtina and is tailored to your goals, your interests and your wishes. You can choose from high-quality learning, language practice, and exploring Provence and meeting its people. An effective and enjoyable way to get to grips with our language and familiarise yourself with local culture. Savour the art of living, Provence-style.
