Who am I ?
My name is Arnaud, I was born in Vaucluse and I hold a degree in Foreign Languages Applied for tourism and translation in English and Spanish. I have had several professional experiences in my life in varied sectors of activity such as hotel and tourist office reception or teaching. Definitely back to my native Provence, I have wanted to change my professional career and make visitors benefit from the cultural, historical and gustatory richness of Vaucluse and provençal Drôme.
Holder of the driving licence since 2003, I also passed the certificate of professional ability in road transport of passengers in a light vehicle of 9 seats maximum, including the driver, in June 2022.
Provence is one of the favourite tourist destinations in France. And thanks to my training and my job experiences in tourism sector, the idea of Ventourisme came naturally. Ventourisme is a portmanteau word between “Ventoux” and “Tourisme”, because I live at the foot of the Mont Ventoux, nicknamed the “Giant of Provence” because it overhangs the whole region, which is visible at almost every moment of my tours. I have developped these routes so that the visitor can leave Provence filled with wonder, as well by the perched villages he visited, as the discovery of the history of our region or the tasting experience of the local specialities such as wine, nougat, candied fruits or olive oil.
Which car ?
All of my tours will be done in this Dacia Jogger limited edition Extrême Eco-G 100 from 2023. The vehicle gets 7 seats which have an identical comfort each, but are also adjustable depending on the number of passengers in the car, and this to enjoy a bigger trunk size. This Dacia Jogger also gets automatic air conditioning as well as front and back electric windows, for all to have a better comfort. With reference to its carburation, this vehicle runs on LPG and petrol, but my choice is to spend LPG as much as possible, for economical and environmental motives, because a vehicle with the same carburation as the Dacia Jogger produces as CO2 per kilometre as an electric car.
