Full description
Meet your guide in central Aix-en-Provence at 9:45 AM on a Sunday. Drive to the beautiful village of Isles sur la Sorgues, famous for its water wheels, and often referred to as the Little Venice of Provence. Enjoy free time to immerse yourself in the bustle of the Sunday market and explore the old church, antiques sellers, local shops, and restaurants.

Continue to Gordes, one of the most beautiful villages in France. Stop for a spot of lunch in one of the cobbled streets. Next you’ll visit the colorful village of Roussillon. Take a walk to a former open-air mine, before heading to your final destination. 

The last stop is in Lourmarin. Admire the magnificent 18th-century castle and see the charming streets where Peter Mayle used to spend his time. Then enjoy some time for shopping in the arts and craft shops in the historical center. You will be dropped back to the center of Aix-en-Provence at the end of the day.
