Summer South France Art & Culinary Trip
France is world renown for its rich history and its unique art de vivre, a model that has forged a widespread myth and built an entire culture along the centuries. Curagenda’s unique Summer South of France trip offers a privileged experience of Provence: giving you keys to prestige gastronomy and encounters with starred chefs, visits of exceptional classified properties with their owners, meetings with curators, collectors and local artists in their studios, wine tasting in handpicked vineyards, curated dinners, a sailing excursion on the Azure Coast, and more.
Provence is still a cradle for new ideas and one ideal retreat for artists. Major new players in the art and cultural landscape include Vincent Van Gogh Foundation, LUMA Foundation, Chateau La Coste, among others. Marseille city being host to Manifesta 2020 only confirms the trend.
Curagenda gives you privileged access to the young art fair, Art-O-Rama’s VIP program and accompanies you for all other exclusive events in the city. Experience this cutting edge regional fair in its outstanding industrial site of La Friche, and the festive mood with our Curagenda circle of friends for an unforgettable expedition in the sun-bathed French Riviera.
