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.

    I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to have a full experience of Provence. The tour has an impressive itinerary from Gordes, Roussilion and Sault where you can visit quaint villages and the lavender field. Gilles was so organized and knowledgeable about each location. He truly is passionate about making us feel welcomed and having great experience. After this tour, I am excited to come back to Avignon and set up another tour with him next year.

    Excellent day tour!!! Gilles really knows how to best run a tour business. Small group in a clean, spacious van with a nice scent of lavendin. We had so much fun visiting the villages and the secluded lavender fields. All the stops really lived up to expectation though we could not visit St. Abby because of special reason. Good English explanation about everything. Definitely a 5-star service.

    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.
