Get ready to spend a day exploring the lavender fields of Provence!
Your day trip starts in Aix-en-Provence at 9am where you meet your friendly local guide. Set off in the comfort of our upmarket minivan and enjoy the picturesque views of Provence as you go.
The first part of your drive will be through the Luberon Regional Natural Park, along the beautiful, winding roads of Combe de Lourmarin to join the Claparèdes Plateau.

Your tour will continue in the direction of Pays de Sault, where lavender and lavandin are grown and distilled. Get ready for the views of the lavender fields in bloom!
Arriving in the village of Sault you can enjoy some free time for lunch (not included). Take the opportunity to taste local Provencal specialties like the nougat produced in the village with lavender honey and almonds.
Leaving Sault, be prepared for the amazing views of lavender fields! Your guide knows all the best spots for photos so don't forget your camera!
In the afternoon, your tour continues onwards to the Luberon village of Gordes. Perched high in the Luberon area, this Provencal village is classified as one of "the most beautiful villages in France". It is famous for the dry stones with which the whole village is constructed.
After your visit to Gordes it is time to make the drive back towards Aix-en-Provence. You will end the day filled with an appreciation for the landscapes, villages, lavender and culture of Provence.
