    1. From Avignon: 1-Day Lavender Tour

    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 buco...

    This was a great overview of some very picturesque sites in Provence. It was nice to have some flexibility to spend time where we wanted, to shop, and to get some great information about the local areas.

    2. From Avignon: Half-Day Lavender Tour of Luberon

    Discover the lavender fields in full bloom in the villages of Luberon on this half-day tour from Avignon.  Enjoy a scenic and picturesque drive through the countryside, full of beautiful purple fields that stretch as far as the eye can see. Your guide will organize many stops in the countryside to take pictures of the fields. Stop in Roussillon for some free time to wander through this typical provençal village. Indulge yourself here with a scoop of lavender ice cream. Stop for panoramic photos from the hilltop village of Gordes, listed as one of "The Most Beautiful Villages in France". Finally, take a quick photo stop at the Cisterian Senanque Abbey, surrounded by lavender fields.

    Our tour guide, Joanna, was great! Very knowledgeable, not only on the topic of Lavender (which was what the tour was about) but in general about the area, with historical and modern facts provided with engaging conversation throughout the tour.

  • Lavender Fields: Half-Day Sault Tour from Avignon

    3. Lavender Fields: Half-Day Sault Tour from Avignon

    Enjoy this half-day excursion dedicated to the blue gold of Provence, lavender. Drive north of Avignon in the direction of the highest mountain in Provence, Le Mont Ventoux! Then head in the direction of the village of Sault, the capital of lavender. Admire the breathtaking beauty of the lavender fields in bloom. Take some free time in Sault to wander the area, and experience shopping in lavender shops. Take the opportunity to taste local specialties such as the nougat produced in the village with lavender, honey, and almonds. Stop by a lavender producer during the distillation period to learn about all the process, and discover how to use the essential oil of lavender. During your tour, make the most of the varied photo stops around Sault, and in picturesque lavender fields.

    Lovely tour! Great guide. We took amazing photos and enjoyed our time. I was surprised there is still a lot of sunlight on a cloudy day at 2pm. Book the full-day tour if you want all the time at the lovely Lavendar fields area & rustic town - I had to rush to make sure we got all the souvenirs but it was perfect since we only had a few days in Lyon.

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.
