From Avignon: Lavender & Luberon villages

4. From Avignon: Lavender & Luberon villages

After a 50-minute drive from Avignon, your tour guide will first take you to the world-known Sénanque Abbey, a wonderfully preserved 12th-century monastery nestled among lush forests and beautiful lavender fields. Widely considered among the region’s top attractions, don't miss the opportunity to admire this gem of Romanesque architecture during the blooming season of lavender. Please be aware that during this day trip time doesn't allow a visit of the interiors. Lavender fields around Sénanque are in full bloom generally around June 20-25. On the way to the old town of Gordes, a photo stop at Gordes' famous overlook is planned. Here you'll have the chance to admire one of the most incredible panoramas of the Luberon valley, where vineyards and olive groves stretch out as far as the eye can see, surrounded by gentle green mountains. Minutes later, your driver will drop you off by the town's castle from where you can easily explore the cobbled streets of this world-known hilltop town and admire stunning views of the Luberon landscapes. Plenty of shopping opportunities are available here, as well as small cafes and ice-cream shops. Meet your tour guide again at the meeting point and head to another wonderful village. At around 1 pm your tour guide will drop you in the village of Roussillon, where you'll have a longer time to spend than in the other towns. This allows everyone to have lunch in one of the cafes or snack bars and to explore the colorful streets of Roussillon, where every house is painted a different shade of ochre. If you opt for a quick lunch on the go, you'll also have enough time to walk the beautiful Ochre Trail (entrance fee not included - 4€/adult), a developed pathway through the colored cliffs of a former ochre mine. Following the blooming stage of lavender, during the day we will take you to the brightest and most scenic lavender fields of that moment. In June we will focus on the wide lavender fields on the hillsides of the Luberon valley, whereas later in the season, normally after July 1, we will drive you to higher areas, like the high plateau of Sault. At least two long photo stops are scheduled, both in June and in July. We will drive then back to Avignon, where we will arrive between 5.30 and 6 pm.

We really liked the Luberon villages tour. At first we thought it was too long, but you get to see so much and it is really worth it. We drove there in a small group with a van and guide Remy was very nice, tried to get to know everyone and told us a lot of interesting facts about the region, culture and France in general. We really enjoyed the trip and would definitely book it again.

fabulous day touring around beautiful villages. spent about an hour in each one and were free to explore on our own. it’s a longish day so bring water and wear sensible shoes. also bring cash as some restaurants and shops only accept this.

Our guide Remy was fantastic! We had just the right amount of time in each village. Fortunately, we also had a great group who were all on time on return to van after each stop. Highly recommend this tour!

This year is too hot for lavender however the agent rearranges the tour to make it a great day. Our guide Majid is very nice and helpful.

Remy, the guide, was OUTSTANDING. The whole tour was amazing. A dream come true. Highly recommend it.
