Discover the hilltop villages of the Luberon

Meet your friendly guide at 1.30pm in Aix-en-Provence and get ready for a drive through the marvellous scenery of the Regional Natural park of Luberon. Your afternoon tour will provide a wonderful insight into the highlights of the Luberon.

The first must-see stop on your tour is at Lourmarin, known as one of "the most beautiful villages in France" and famous for its Renaissance castle. Enjoy some free time exploring the village.

After Lourmarin, continue your tour with a photo stop in Bonnieux. This picture perfect Provençal village is topped by a 12th century church surrounded by century-old cedars. This spot offers a magnificient view of the Luberon.

The village of Roussillon is perched up high on top of the cliff of an old ochre quarry. Reminiscent of a painter's palette, Rousillon is a magical place where combinations of oxides provide an infinite variety of orange, brown and red shades in the landscapes and the houses. 

Your last visit of the afternoon is to Gordes, an extraordinary village erected on a cliff. The fortified castle and church dominate the typical houses of the village which were built with stones from the rock on which they are sitting.

Luberon and its gorgeous villages are the perfect place to spend an afternoon in Provence.

At the end of the tour you'll be driven back to Aix-en-Provence, arriving at 7.30pm.

From November to March, tour from 12.30 pm or 6.30 pm.
