Discover the Enchanting Hilltop Villages of Provence

Embark on an unforgettable small group shared full-day tour led by our expert English-speaking local guides. Immerse yourself in the rich history and captivating beauty of the Provence region. Begin your journey by meeting your guide in front of the Aix en Provence tourist office. Familiarize yourself with the day's itinerary and program before boarding our comfortable and air-conditioned vehicle.

Explore the Picturesque Village of Gordes

Your first destination is the charming village of Gordes, renowned as one of the most stunning villages in France. Nestled against the backdrop of the Luberon mountain range, Gordes captivates visitors with its narrow, cobblestone streets known as calades, inviting you to wander and get lost in its timeless beauty. For a truly magical experience, we recommend visiting in the spring or autumn when the village is less crowded.

Admire the Serenity of Senanque Abbey

After exploring Gordes, we'll take you to the serene surroundings of Senanque to behold the awe-inspiring Cistercian abbey of Senanque. Capture unforgettable photos during a brief stop at this magnificent abbey, which is particularly renowned for its breathtaking lavender fields in full bloom during July. The abbey continues to be home to a community of Cistercian monks who faithfully follow the rule of Saint Benedict. You'll have the opportunity to learn about their way of life, witness the cultivation of lavender and olive trees, and explore the monastic shop.

Indulge in a Leisurely Lunch (at own expense)

Following the abbey visit, it's time to savor a delightful lunch in a local village. Feel free to consult your guide for excellent dining recommendations, ensuring a satisfying culinary experience.

Arrive in the village of Roussillon

Continue your Aix en Provence tour with visits to some of the most enchanting villages in the Luberon region, including Lourmarin and Roussillon. Roussillon is a captivating hilltop village perched above the Provencal Colorado rock formation. During your visit, take advantage of personal exploration time, strolling through the village or discovering the Ochre Trail in the heart of Roussillon thanks to the marked trails. 

Lourmarin's Timeless Charm

Lourmarin exudes a unique charm and character. As you meander through its winding streets, you'll encounter architectural marvels representing various periods, from Renaissance to Baroque, and Classicism to the 19th century. These hidden treasures showcase the exceptional craftsmanship often overlooked by the general public. Surrounded by olive and almond trees, Lourmarin has long inspired artists and writers, including Henri Bosco and Albert Camus. Take your time to explore the village, perhaps visiting the ancient castle that served as the inspiration for Peter Mayle's renowned novel, "A Year in Provence."

As the day draws to a close, we'll begin our return journey to Aix en Provence, leaving you with cherished memories of the captivating hilltop villages and the undeniable allure of Provence. Book now to secure your place on this remarkable tour.
