Full description
Your first stop will be Fontaine de Vaucluse where you will be charmed by the biggest French spring. Spontaneous stops at poppy fields on the way are included (in season). Next, marvel at Sénanque Abbey, a jewel of Romanesque art nestled in a lush greenery environment. Afterward, enjoy strolling through the streets of the spectacular hilltop village of Gordes, where you can admire the play of warm light on the dry stone walls. Move on to Roussillon and observe all the different shades of the ochre by wandering along the Ochre Trail (entrance fee not included - 3€/adult) and the colored roads of the village. Then, walk on the streets of Ménerbes, the fortified hilltop village that inspired Peter Mayle to write his most successful novel One Year in Provence.

Highly recommended! Thanks to this tour it was possible to visit places in Provence that are not accessible by public transport and this made the whole trip unique. The roads traveled offer wonderful landscapes and each village is characterized by unique characteristics that make it unique. Too bad for the short time (1h) spent in Roussillon: if you want to take a walk through the narrow streets of the center you can't walk the whole path of ocher, however the first 50m can give you some beautiful emotions so it's still worth it penalty.
