Veronica is very friendly, informative and funny, and also an excellent driver! The trip includes four beautiful villages - Vaucluse, Gorde, Rousillon and Menerbes, plus Notre Dame de Senanque Abbey which is famous for its lavender fields in summer (went there in September thus not in bloom, but still it was stunning and tranquil). These four villages are well picked because they show different sides of Luberon, Provence, and also each one is quite small so the time Veronica reserved for each village was quite enough for strolling around and taking some cool pictures.

Ein ganz zauberhafter Ausflug zu den Dörfern des Luberon. Das erste Ziel war die Fontaine de Vaucluse, eine interessante Quelle unterhalb nebelverhangener Hügel. Danach besuchten wir Abbeye de Senanque und das pittoreske Dorf Gordes, wo man entweder Mittagessen oder die kleinen Gassen der Altstadt erkunden konnte. Am Nachmittag ging es dann weiter zum ockerfarbenen Dorf Rousillon, dem Dorf der Ockersteinbrüche. Es war genügend Zeit entweder den kürzeren Ockerpfad zu begehen oder das Dorf zu erkunden. Die Ockersteinbrüche sind im auch von der Dorfspitze aus gut zu sehen und sehr fotogen. Die letzte Station war das beschauliche Dorf Menerbes. Nicht von Touristen überlaufen zeigt dieses Dorf die ruhige Seite des Luberon. Unsere Reiseleiterin Veronica war sehr freundlich, kannte sich gut aus und ließ sich auch durch den Feierabendverkehr in Avignon nicht aus der Ruhe bringen. Eine sehr empfehlenswerte Tour, die es erlaubt, Orte zu erkunden, die nicht mit dem Nahverkehr erreichbar sind!

Excellente journée passée avec Nicolas, notre guide très sympathique. Nous aurions peur-être juste aimer passer un peu plus de temps dans le village de Roussillon. Il est difficile d'à la fois aller dans le sentier des ocres et visiter le village, faute de temps. Nous gardons un très bon souvenir de cette journée. Bonne continuation à notre guide.
