This is your personal invitation to an all-inclusive luxury retreat for creatives, entrepreneurs and lovers of France. Let's connect on a personal level, elevate our businesses and discover the charms of Provence where I was raised and still go often to recharge.
This Retreat is about You.
Slow down and come with me for an inspiring adventure across the South of France. Together we will immerse ourselves in curated experiences that will leave you re-energized. From conversations about running a business and being an entrepreneur to relaxing moments like cooking classes and chilling by the pool, or wandering in the picturesque village of Gordes and taking photos in the mesmerizing Lavender fields, we will share an unforgettable girls trip together.
Make Yourself a Priority.
“This Rendez-Vous with Audrey in Provence” is an all-inclusive luxury Retreat with limited space to allow each guest to be intentional, connect with others and have one-on-one time with Audrey to talk with her about your personal questions. She will be an open book about everything, from building and running a business to styling and shooting and marketing and branding. She will be joined by Ale Vidal to dive into the creative process of imagining a story, directing a subject, and translating what is in our mind and Pinterest board to an actual, tangible visual.
Inspired by her travels and her Love for Provence, Audrey invites you to discover the South of France during the Lavender season which only lasts a few weeks each year.
As a visual storyteller, Audrey loves hosting dinners with endless conversations around earthy food on beautifully styled tables.
She believes in taking the time for yourself to feel refreshed and re-inspired.
This Retreat will be hosted in two charming venues in Provence 20 minutes away from Gordes. Both venues have 4 rooms and a pool.
The two venues are 5 minutes away from each other and we will have a shuttle at your disposal to go from one venue to the other.
One is the “Clos” a beautiful Provencal property located on 17 acres in the South of France. Its origins date back to the 18th century where it once served to produce fine French wines and more recently, a limited production of olive oil.
The owners have lovingly restored the property with an eye to ensure it retains the charm of the surrounding area, whilst adding luxurious amenities, for a truly authentic and immersive Provencal experience.
The Second one is the “Maison” a charming character house tastefully decorated by an interior designer who created a truly cosy atmosphere in this house right in the center of the village. Nestled between the church and the old ramparts, this house dominates the landscape offering exceptional views of the Alpilles and the Luberon right from the pool.
It is an Instagram-worthy pool, believe me!
