About Us

Judi Janofsky and Rich Steck
Since our first trip abroad together more than 20 years ago, we have traveled throughout the world but each year we return to France. Particularly to Provence and Dordogne. The south of France has become our second home and we relish the time we spend there – browsing local markets, exploring off-the-beaten-path villages and relishing the friendships we’ve made over the years.

In 2008, we founded Provence Escapes, so that we can share the places and people we know and love in these wonderful areas of France. Rich brings years of experience in the travel industry, along with a quirky sense of humor. And Judi, a gourmet cook who studied at Le Cordon Bleu, will introduce you to the delightful regional foods and sites of our tours.

During our week-long tours, our small groups stay in a luxurious villa with all the comforts of home and conveniences of a hotel, like gorgeous French linens, full ensuite bathrooms and wireless Internet access.
