Full description

Get ready to explore some of France’s most scenic landscapes on a trip to Castellane, Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, and the gorges of the Verdon. Be picked up from your hotel or home address in Nice at 8:00 AM. Depart with your driver to the hills of your countryside destination.

Cross the "gorge of the wolf", complete with its 40-meter-high waterfall, before stopping at Castellane. Whilst traveling along the Verdon (named for its astonishing turquoise green color), enjoy spectacular views of the 700-meter-deep canyon.

Afterward, move on to the village of Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, nestled under a rocky cliff and surrounded by mountains from all sides. Known for its rich history in ceramic craftsmanship, you will have free time here to explore Moustiers at your leisure.

Discover the earthenware in the stores, and buy souvenirs before lunch in one of the terrace cafes. Photograph the world-famous lavender platters, or enjoy the lake of St. Croix, an artificial treasure of clear water which is one of the most beautiful lakes of Provence.

After enjoying your trip, return to your vehicle at which point you will be driven back to your point of origin in Nice.

    Awesome trip! You going to see European Grand Canyon, totally beautiful, breathtaking! Have a few stops, take lots of photos, swim in the fresh water lake. Groups are small, max 8 people, mini vans are very comfortable and drivers , or I should say our driver/ guide Leo was excellent! Spoken few languages, very good knowledge of area. Just a couple of things every one should consider….. Beautiful lavanda flowering in July, so if you go on this trip in spring or autumn don’t expect purple beauty . Also the cars or minivans as well as comfortable they are for 8 people and driver. Isn’t big room to move, so please be considerate to each other and don’t wear strong parfums please . The rest is up to you to pay ( very good value for money) and enjoy beautiful Provence

    Great services but there was no lavender fields to see, as it was out of the season (they should tell us that). And the guide skipped the best spots for viewing the Gorges of Verdon. We did not know when we would have time for lunch as the clear planning is not said. NOTE it did not take 10h. It was 8 at max.

    This trip was an outstanding one and I enjoyed every moment. My guide was Raphël and he did a superb job of explaining everything we saw. I was picked up exactly on time at my appartment. Raphaël’s English is perfect. My trip was solo and I feel a very good value. I suggest this for single or a couple. This does not mean a larger group would not be good, just more one on one time with a smaller group.
