  • From Marseille: Lavender Tour to Sault, Roussillon & Gordes

    1. From Marseille: Lavender Tour to Sault, Roussillon & Gordes

    Drive to Pays de Sault with its wide lavender fields in bloom. Stop in Sault, the capital of lavender and enjoy many photo stops in the lavender fields in bloom and visit a lavender producer. You will have free time in the charming village of Sault for lunch on your own, and if you are visiting on a Wednesday, you're in luck as it is market day. In the the afternoon, discover two of the most beautiful villages in France. Roussillon is built at the top of an ochre cliff, and provides visitors with a beautiful understanding of the harmonious combination of man and nature, and of ochre and stone with all its ochre-washed façades. Gordes is a village erected on the top of a cliff, its fortified castle and church dominate the typical houses of the village which were built with stones from the rock on which they sit. Head back to Marseille in the late afternoon.

    Great tour to see the lavender fields. Make sure you are prepared to walk and deal with the heat if you go in the summer.

Our tour guide was absolutely wonderful and knowledgeable. He shared information about Marseille during the drive to the countryside. We saw multiple lavender fields, lookout points with plenty of time for pictures. The two villages were a great part of the trip as well-each with its own character and charm. There was enough time to eat, shop and explore. We had thought about renting a car but saw much more of the region with the tour!

It was a fantastic day in Provence! :) I saw a lot - Sault, Roussillon & Gourdes and our great & humorous guide (Thomas) made several stops with us in lavender fields, so that you could enjoy the atmosphere and take souvenir photos! :) We also visited a lavender distillery and the market in Sault - simply wonderful! On the drive through the Luberon National Park you have a great view! This tour is highly recommended! :)

The Tour was absolutely great, even better than expected. We had a lot of fun that day, saw beautiful lavender fields and 3 lovely small villages in the provence. Guillaume was the perfect guide, he gave us a great historical overview, made the time we spent in the bus a fun time and was very ambitious to satisfy all the needs of the group individuals. Would definitely recommend it! I would even do it again.

We really enjoyed the company of our guide Nelly. She was knowledgeable and gave us plenty of time to enjoy things on our own, plus she was an amazing driver
