We love Provence

Provence, and in particular the Luberon Valley, offers some of the best of France, its nature, its villages and its lifestyle. Fields of lavender or grape vines and orchards of cherry or olive trees crisscross the landscape in a spectacular patchwork and evidence of a life and love of the land, by the locals. Provence is certainly one of the most important regions for its diversity and beautiful landscape.

and Tuscany!

Tuscany, a rolling landscape of vineyards and olive groves, crowned with medieval hill top villages and cypress lined lanes. Tuscany’s rich history, traditions and cultural heritage are no secret and can be experienced and enjoyed by all when holidaying in a villa/self-catering accommodation. Many properties are historic buildings that have been updated with modern utilities while preserving the historic feel and look of the property. Some have had very little modification and offer a real feeling of ‘stepping back in time’.

  • "We used house of travel for our team tour to Australia at the end of September this year. The staff there namely Leone who we were dealing with was awesome and very friendly and helpful to deal with. The amounts of changes and special issues and booking changes we went through never phased her, even trying to help us with negotiations of flights and payment dates, it was really appreciated. Have a great year and will certainly recommend you to anyone needing to travel. Thank you  :) :)"

    ~ The Hawks U16 team

  • “Tania was amazing at organizing our Honeymoon to Honolulu, Hawaii. All the tours booked for our trip were as planned, while we received excellent services from the tour companies. House of Travel are very easy to deal with and make the planning process a breeze. We highly recommend House of Travel!”
