Full description
Visit the most beautiful medieval hilltop villages in the southern Luberon. Discover the charms of Lourmarin, Bonnieux, Roussillon, and Gordes on a 6-hour tour. Stop in Lourmarin for some free time, considered by many to be one of the most beautiful villages in France, and noted for its Renaissance castle.Take a photo in Bonnieux, a picture-perfect Provençal village that features a 12th-century church surrounded by ancient cedars. Continue to Roussillon via the Roman-era Pont Julien. Roussillon, perched atop an ochre-colored cliff, is a favorite of painters, and a magical place where combinations of oxides give the ochre an infinite variety of colors. Gordes offers an extraordinary vision of a stone village erected on a massive rock. Its fortress castle and church dominate the houses of the village, which were built with stones taken from the rock on which they sit.

A beautiful excursion which is a good discovery of the Luberon, a very cultivated, interesting and juggling guide between English and French. Rémy has a great sense of communication and animation and enjoys discovering his travelers. Thank you Rémy despite the fact that it was not always easy with my mother walking with a cane.

The villages are beautiful and the guide was very accommodating

In my opinion, I think an hour in Gordes and an hour in Roussillon is not necessary. I would have enjoyed more time in Lourmarin. Lea was a very good driver and she was attentive to the elderly woman who was on the tour. All in all, a most enjoyable day.

It was an amazing excursion with a great guide. He knows a lot about the region so the explanations about history, nature etc were very interesting. The spots we visited (villages in the Luberon) are difficult to be reached by the public transportation. The guided tour deserves to be paid.
