In addition to personal luxury travel, Andy Swann Voyage also offers a selection of Curated Collection itineraries focused on certain regions or themes. Designed for 2-8 participants, they are particularly suited to small groups of friends and family, travelling together, or to solo travellers and couples who enjoy meeting like-minded travel companions.

Of course, we apply the same standards of excellence to these tours as we do to our individual travel services: The Andy Swann Voyage Curated Collection is focused not only on luxury and quality but also on total flexibility. Whether for a few days or an excursion lasting several weeks, each Curated Collection itinerary is uniquely designed to include the destinations and activities chosen by the client, and timed to fit the client’s scheduling preferences.

At Andy Swann Voyage, we don’t have catalogues: we have conversations. Our itineraries are intended as examples only, as a starting point for our conversation with you.  We look forward to speaking with you and to creating your bespoke Curated Collection itinerary.

FEATURED ITINERARY:  Portrait of Provence

(c) Daniel Adel

From Van Gogh’s red vineyards near Arles to Cézanne’s undulating landscapes of vines and orchards at the foot of Mount Saint-Victoire, the Provençal terrain has been the source of not only wine but also inspiration for countless artists and painters up to the present day.  Explore Provence on an art-and-wine route that takes you through the countryside to some of the region’s loveliest villages. Visit the elegant town of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence where Van Gogh painted 140 paintings, then follow the wine route to the Vaucluse, stopping for private wine tastings in little-known chateaux. Enjoy private visits to the studios of local artists and sculptors and, for something truly extraordinary, have have a sitting for a portrait, photograph, or caricature by the renowned American artist and illustrator Daniel Adel in Lourmarin.  Our Curated Collection Portrait of Provence itinerary is designed to introduce you to this magical region through the eyes of artists past and present.
