Hiking guides and nature interpreters


We love Provence & love
sharing it with you



Passionate & highly skilled local experts

For twenty-four years, I have succeeded in expanding my activity as a guide, turning my passion into my profession.

Isabelle, Lucie, Julie, Pierre, Olivier, Marc, Lionel, Philippe, Thierry, Cédric, Arnaud and Felix are English-speaking certified hiking guides, as I am. All of us live and work on Provence’s land, displaying a high standard of ethics. And we bring our top-class expertise to our local areas : therefore, we know the best trails and the most scenic spots across Provence. Few other professionals know so well the specific flora and historical features

Be confident about hiring a professional guide: carrying out our profession in an experienced way, my partners and I will keep you safe on every trail of this varied region. We will select with you the best routes according to your wishes and abilities, together with the conditions of your stay. You will find us approachable, accommodating and eager to make your experience here a memorable one.  

And with us, walking in Provence led by a guide is possible in four languages : we can speak English, German, Italian and French, of course !


We are experts in Mediterranean nature











All of us are naturalist guides with expert knowledge, especially in the so diverse Mediterranean flora. In addition to the guiding of adults, most of us lead schoolchildren and students on hiking trails. We propose nature interpretation and education programs.



Hiking is one of my greatest joys in life. I discovered it as a child during the summer holidays. Our father used to lead my brother and I up to Garlaban‘s top in the early morning. What a pleasure it was, after our effort, to savour the saucisson, this typical dry-cured sausage, while towering over the town of Aubagne.
Today, I am happy to share my passion and knowledge with you, visitors from all over the world. Thank you for coming and exploring Provence, my beautiful and so diverse region.

I am an accredited professional hiking guide, member of the UIMLA (Union of International Mountain Leader Associations). On trails since 1999 as a guide, I have acquired a solid expertise in a wide range of trails and a large knowledge in many fields: natural environment of course, but also history, art, food and wine – in a word, local culture. I am ever eager to share with my guests tidbits of information about the area we are exploring. 






My business partners in outdoor recreation are hiking guides companies, local incoming agencies, international tour operators, holiday clubs, hotels, tourist offices and other professional guides. As far as educational school trips are concerned, I mostly work with French high schools.

Provençal by my mother, I practice my activity in every corner of Provence with a various public in very different ways. And this diversity is essential to me.

My family and I have been living in Provence since 2000, after a few years spent in Canada. Besides hiking, I am passionate about trail running, cooking, listening to music and watching movies. 



I am an International Mountain Leader (UIMLA). 

My certificate : Brevet d’État d’Accompagnateur en Moyenne Montagne
   (French State Mountain Leader certificate). 












Thank you for your confidence !
