Full description
Your guide will first take you to Fontaine de Vaucluse, a beautiful village located by the river Sorgue. Walk up to its spring – one of the biggest in Europe. Next, stop at Sénanque Abbey and take as many pictures as you want of this majestic 12th century Abbey which is surrounded by lavender fields. After the photo-stop at the 'belvedere', head off to Gordes, a hilltop village made of local dry stones and enjoy the market (on Tuesdays). Explore the Provencal village of Roussillon, and observe the houses, whose colors vary with the sunlight. The Provencal market on Thursday adds even more colors. This is where you will take your lunch break (not included). After lunch, explore the lavender fields. Fill your body with fresh lavender fragrance, take some pictures and have a look at a distillation operation during harvest.  Your final stop is the village of Sault, in the middle of a bucolic landscape, isolated from civilization. There, enjoy some free time for shopping, taste a lavender ice cream or have a drink on a panoramic terrace.  At the end of the tour, your guide will drive you back to Avignon.

    The tour was flexible and I didn’t feel any pressure. Also, there were only 4 of us in the tour, so it felt like a private tour of friends. I like that the guide was very particular with good hygiene practice to make sure to prevent covid-19. We spent a lot of time in the lavender fields and had more than enough time for photos! Plus we were able to visit historical towns in the region.

    Gilles was an excellent tour guide. He did the tour just for myself as there were not other people, and I have to say he made everything possible so that I enjoy my day. Excellent timing in every stop, lots of opportunities for some great photos with endless lavander fields. Some of the most beautiful towns In Provence are visited during this day ( Gordes, Rousillon, Sault, Fountaine ) and the lavander Ice cream at was the end of a great day! Also it was great that the tour was not cancelled even when I was alone.

    The tour was truly enjoyable! Not only did Gilles gave good introduction to the different types of lavandin and lavender, as a local he holds deep knowledge about Provence! He explained the history and way of life of the area. I will definitely recommend this tour to my friends and family!
