follow in the footsteps of Emily

and the Netflix series shooting locations in Provence

Emily has invite a second time to our region. This season, she’s putting down her bags in the Vaucluse for her new adventures. On the menu, fields of lavender and villages with little paved streets: so Provençal!

Lavender fields and the Les Agnels distillery in Buoux

For season 3, our favourite working girl will be seen in the Vaucluse. Head for the Luberon Natural Regional Park and more precisely Les Agnels distillery. Fields of lavandin as far as the eye can see, welcome to the temple of lavender, where you’re welcomed with a guided tour with a delightful flavour of the Luberon and Provence. The added bonus of the Distillerie Agnels: tools capable of distilling aromatic plants and citrus fruit, gums or seeds! After you’ve seen the stills, head for the hamlet of Les Agnels on one of the most beautiful plots for a demonstration of harvesting with a sickle. If you’re a shopaholic, you can go to the shop where cosmetics fans just won’t be able to leave empty-handed! We’re told that Emily left with armfuls of floral waters and essential oils!

Little tips from the Editor:

Something tells us that you’ll be delighted to know the address of the bed & breakfast you can see in the episode. Hidden away in a private and typically Provencal atmosphere, discover Le Couvent in Apt. A few kilometres from the Distillerie Agnels and not far from Gordes, follow in Emily’s footsteps and treat yourself to a stay there!

Airelles or the most beautiful bastide in Gordes

Who could do better than Emily to organize a successful party? Looking for the coolest spot to celebrate the launching of a product or organizing a show for Pierre Cadeau (the series’ greatest fans will know what we’re talking about!), the Agence Savoir has pulled out all the stops. Soon, when the series comes out, on 21st December, find out what brought the filming team to the Clover Gordes for a culinary experience signed Jean-François Piège. So, head for Gordes and this lavish bastide with its Provencal atmosphere looking over the contours of the Luberon range. The former mansion is made up of four period houses renovated into a single location: La Maison Airelles. Lush green terraces, a swimming pool surrounded by olive trees, hanging gardens: we just know that Emily couldn’t help taking a selfie here! If you’re coming to Gordes, take some time to discover this village of art and history where you can see works by Marc Chagall, Victor Vasarely and Pol Mara on the walls of the little cobbled streets framed. Best time to go there is in spring or autumn for the colours, the gentle atmosphere and peace and quiet.

Shooting anecdote:

With just two weeks of filming in the south of France, no time to flit around from one thing to another. Lily Collins and the actors in Emily in Paris had their work cut out! The director and Lily herself, after having been attracted by the midnight blue window of La Maison Chazarin and having enjoyed their pastries one morning, fell head over heels in love with their croissants and pains au chocolat. To such a point that, throughout the filming, even “off site” in Gordes, those same pastries were served every morning of shooting to the teams! This family baker shop has recently been taken over by Mme Chazarin’s two sons, so just imagine how proud the mother was to see Emily so excited by the pastries made by her two boys. But one thing’s for sure, Emily finds it more difficult to choose between Gabriel and Alfie … Stay tuned for the next episodes!

Season 2 under the sun of the Côte d’Azur!

Last year, in Season 2 on Netflix, we saw Emily in Paris on the platform of the Station of Villefranche-sur-Mer. Just for one episode, bye-bye to the rooftops of Paris, and hello to the private beaches of the French Riviera. We see Emily having a weekend in Saint-Tropez but our trained eye recognizes the landscapes of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat and Villefranche-sur-Mer. And we also very quickly recognize the spectacular view from the Route des Trois Corniches before the road goes down to the Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat where Emily and her friends decide to unpack their luggage. A few kilometres away, with her toes in the sand of Paloma Beach, Emily has a “champagne shower” with the famous Champère that all the fans of the series know well. After a night of partying, Camille and Emily meet up in the first light of day in the Chapelle Saint-Pierre, home to a work by Jean Cocteau: a real must if you’re on holiday in the area! Passing through Saint-Tropez, the Frenchest of American girls just had to stop off at the mythical Café Sénéquier: its red facade and its chairs facing the harbour are one of the must-sees of the Riviera. If you want to get back into the atmosphere, discover or rediscover this episode which will make you want a piece of the Côte d’Azur!
