Full description
Grab your camera and set out to admire the startling purple landscapes of Provence in summertime on this full-day tour from Avignon. Follow the lavender route in the Luberon valley, stopping to explore some of the famous hilltop villages of the Luberon valley. After a stop with a breathtaking view on the valley, marvel at the 12-th century Sénanque Abbey with its lavender fields (generally blooming at the end of June). Discover then top attractions such as the stone town of Gordes and the red village of Roussillon — home to the famous Ochre Trail. Along the way through the Luberon valley, admire beautiful views over rolling lavender fields stretching into the distance and take some time to enjoy some of the most secret lavender fields of Provence. During the harvesting season (late July) we will also take you to a local farm, where you'll have the chance to watch over the distillation of lavender.

It was a nice and pleasant tour. We were shown beautifully blooming lavender fields. There was enough time for the abbey and Gordes - in Gordes for lunch and a stroll. In Roussillon, however, you ran out of time if you wanted to see the little village in addition to the ocher fields. The guide went to a lot of trouble, you felt in good hands.
