Full description
This 5-hour tour takes you on a discovery of Les Baux-de-Provence, a medieval village labeled as "one of the most beautiful villages in France". This immense and superb stone fortress is without doubt one of the must-sees on the Provencal tourist trail. Here you can sample some of the best olive oils and wines in the region.

You will have the opportunity to taste olive oil at a mill in the valley of Les Baux-de-Provence, one of the most beautiful landscapes of olive groves in Provence where olive oil, cracked olives, and black olives are entitled to the AOC Label. The unusual feature of this olive oil is that it is made from a blend of several varieties of olives. It is the subtle blend of these varieties, a secret jealously guarded by each producer, that gives the oils a whole palette of different flavors.

You will also enjoy wine tasting in an estate at the foot of the Alpilles mountain range. The wines of Les Baux-de-Provence are defined by the unique, multi-faceted character of the soil, naturally protected and dried by the mistral wind. Les Baux-de-Provence wines have been officially recognized since 1995 by a "Registered Designation of Origin" (Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée). Nowadays, the wines are unusual in that the grapes are grown using organic or biodynamic methods over 85% of their geographical area.
