Trip Summary

Provence Spa BreakThe French Riviera has been known for years for its health resorts. Its warm climate, delicious healthy food paired with Provençal wines and stunning coastlines are the perfect mix for a relaxing break. Our four day Bandol and Spa package offers a very comfortable stay in a haven of peace, the Thalazur Hotel île Rousse located at the heart of Bandol, as well as tours and tastings at premium local wineries of the Bandol and Cassis appellations.

Upon arrival in Bandol, check into your preferred room grade at the 5* Hotel île Rousse. The remainder of the day will be free for you to do as you please. You may wish to enjoy the hotel’s private beach and make the most of the Provençal sun. Alternatively, you may prefer to explore Bandol independently.

On day two, we will arrange a spa morning for you at the hotel. This will include a hydrotherapy treatment and a massage. You are able to choose between a massage under Sea shower with relaxing balm and a relaxing massage with precious oil. You will then be given a free afternoon to do as you please.

Provence Rosé

On day three, you will be met at the hotel by a private chauffeured vehicle, which will accompany you throughout the day for a tour of the Bandol and Cassis appellations. You will firstly be taken to the Cassis appellation for a tour and tastings at a premium local domaine. Here, you will learn about the Cassis AOC and the specificities of the local wines. After such an enlightening morning, you will be given some free time for lunch in the picturesque port. In the afternoon, you will be taken to two different wineries in Bandol and its surroundings. Here, you will learn everything about the wine growing history of the region, its AOC as well as the wine-making process. You will visit the wine-making facilities of the estates and your tour will conclude with tastings of their aromatic rosé wines. You will be taken back to your hotel at the end of the tour.

Accommodation

We have just returned from our trip and would like to let you know how much we enjoyed ourselves. During the trip everyone was so friendly and helpful. The hotel was great. It was really interesting to visit such a variety of Domaines and taste their excellent wines. We thought that the choice of Domaines and Caves was well thought out. We will definitely book again with Grape Escapes and thank you for organising this trip for us.
