Full description
You'll be picked up directly from your hotel in Avignon by private vehicle and transfer (less than 1-hour) to the picturesque village of Gordes, listed as one of the most beautiful villages in France. After exploring the stunning medieval streets, your guide will lead you along the walking paths lined with ancient stone walls.

On seldom-used trails and through the thyme-laden hills, you will reach the 12th century Sénanque Abbey, completely intact, and a jewel of Romanesque architecture. It sits in a hidden valley framed by lavender fields. You will be able to visit the Abbey if you wish (there are regularly scheduled guided tours lasting an hour, not included).

Beyond the abbey, climb on a path with magnificent aerial views of the ancient buildings. You will reach a pass before a leisurely descent back to Gordes, finishing your loop. The fully guided walk will be 10 kilometers in total and require approximately 3-hours of walking time on easy but rock paths.
