Let us take you on a tour through our magical place in Provence.
Orto de Prouvènço means “Large Garden” in Provençal, the old language of Provence. It is our aromatherapy seminar center located in High Provence (France), one hour by car north-east of Avignon.
On the outskirts of Aurel, a charming Provençal village, you will find our wonderful property consisting of 4 typical stone buildings with 25 guest rooms, surrounded by 150 acres of Lavender fields and forests. This place, along with a beautiful view overlooking an incredible landscape, offers a very unique setting for our seminars.
Indeed, it has both the power and silence of pure Nature. On the one hand expressed through the spectacular view where the green of the pine and oak forests combines with the colors of the limestone rocks and the surrounding mountains. And on the other, it is also a place where you can feel all the peace, the softness and the generosity of Mother Earth through the many delicate healing fragrances floating in the air.
The beauty of the aromatic gardens with their numerous medicinal plants, the many sun terraces to relax, all the lively silence embedded in a joyful, creative atmosphere of international guests from all continents make you feel at home immediately.
