Pick up at your Cruise Ship in Marseille

Today we will come and pick you up at your Cruise Ship in Marseille Port of Call. Meet your English speaking driver/guide who will go over the itinerary and program of this private shore excursion. Then, board your air conditioned vehicle and begin to make your way to the Luberon villages of Provence.

There are a number of villages that can be visited on this full day trip from Marseille. Below is our selection of Villages du Luberon that are worth a stop. It will be your driver/guide on the day of your tour that will go over this selection with you.

Depending on your wishes, your Expert guide will adapt the itinerary to your wishes. You will also have some free time in most villages so that you may explore on your own and lunch will be taken at your own expense in one of the villages on the way.

Our selection of Luberon Villages:

Gordes

Gordes is without a doubt the most famous of all Luberon villages. The downside to this is the high number of visitors that come to visit the village so we advise that if you do choose to visit this village, you should go there immediately so as to arrive early.

Classified as one of the most beautiful villages of France and facing the Luberon mountain range, the village is composed of small paved streets, known as calades, where it feels so nice to get lost in. To mostly appreciate this unique village, magic operates in spring and autumn as summer is very crowded by the number of visitors.

Lourmarin

The village of Lourmarin is quite unique. As you stroll the winding streets, the architecture in the village reveals its many riches: from the Renaissance to the Baroque period, from Classicism to the 19th century, the houses in Lourmarin highlight the incomparable know-how of those builders often little known to the general public. 

Located in a gorgeous setting that is surrounded by olive and almond trees, the village has attracted numerous artists and writers such Henri Bosco and Albert Camus. Again, enjoy some time in the village where options include the visit of its ancient castle. The village was the source of inspiration for Peter Mayle’s “A year in Provence”.

Roussillon

The village of Roussillon is a typical hilltop village located just above a rock formation called the “Provencal Colorado“. Here, you will have some time for personal discovery that will allow you to stroll down the village or walk along the “ochre cliffs path", a 30 minute walk.

Bonnieux

The architecture of Bonnieux, papal town for about 500 years, testifies to the prestige of its inhabitants over the centuries: ecclesiastical dignitaries, counts, lords... up until the modern times of the 19th century. The village has kept all its authenticity, its steep sloping streets, its fountains and washhouses, its old church - or upper church, a mix of Romanesque and Gothic

As Provence Specialists, please note that we also conduct private tours, shore excursions, wine tasting tours departing from Toulon. Other important destinations to discover provence include the town of Aix en Provence, the Pont du Gard, the village of Les Baux de Provence, Chateauneuf du Pape for the wines, Van Gogh tours, the lavender fields, l'Isle sur la Sorgue River and village and so much more. For more information please contact our reservations team.

Provence Wine Tasting

On this Shore excursion from Marseille Port of Call, it is also possible to include a wine tasting session of Provence Wines. During the booking process, it will be possible for you to choose the number of villages in the Luberon that you would like to include. If you would like to include a wine tasting session, please only select the visit of 2 villages so that we have time to include the winery visit.
