Cross the valley of the Durance river and arrive on Valensole plateau and enjoy picturesque small roads winding among lavender fields.
This area is specialised in the « lavandin » culture and you will benefit from your local guide's knowledge about the culture of this "blue gold".
All along the tour, your A la Française guide will stop for you at great picture spots to admire the purple flowers... do not forget your camera!
You will also get the chance to meet a local producer who will share with you his passion for lavender and lavandin! The perfect opportunity to learn everything about this unique culture: its harvest and distillation but also all the different products made from lavender!
After that first visit, the next stop will be in the perched village of Moustiers-Ste-Marie, famous for its earthen ware workshops (free time for visit and lunch -not included- on your own).
Continue with a scenic drive to the breathtaking opening of the Grand Canyon of the River Verdon. Discover the amazing Sainte Croix Lake and enjoy of a last stop in Sainte Croix de Verdon, a typical provençal village nested in an amazing natural landscape.
Your guide will then drive you back to Aix-en-Provence after a magnificent day A la Française!
