  • From Aix-en-Provence: Full-Day Lavender Tour to Valensole

    2. From Aix-en-Provence: Full-Day Lavender Tour to Valensole

    Drive through the valley of the Durance River and discover the Plateau of Valensole specializing in the cultivation of lavandin, where small roads wind through the fields of flowers. Many stops will be included by the fields in bloom. Stop at a farmer/ producer's place with lavender and lavandin essential oils, olive oil and lavender honey. Stop in the perched village of Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, so famous for its earthen ware workshops (free time for visit and lunch not included).

Have free time in the picturesque village of Sainte Croix du Verdon settled by Sainte Croix Lake (possibility of swimming or sunbathing) before going back to Aix-en-Provence.

    Lots of opportunity to see Lavender fields - breathtaking! Also sunflower fields - olive trees, along with tastings of different olive oils, etc. Loved being able to tour the charming towns- and with the benefit of a driver so that’s we did not have to deal with parking or navigation. The tour guide we had, Remy, spoke English very well- and since we and the other members of our tour spoke English our guide was in English - however he does them in French as well if that is better suited. Remy was knowledgeable about many subjects from the lavender, to local farming, to the history of the villages, the region and France in general.

Exceptional, everything was perfect. Between the lavender fields, the Verdon gorges, the day was magical. Landscapes took your breath away. The icing on the cake our guide Rémy was brilliant, very nice, professional, all along the way giving us anecdotes about the region, took his time at each stop. I will come back !

It was the best. Verdon Gorge is not famous in Japan, but it was a really wonderful place. The village of Moustiers-Saint-Marie was also very unique and fun, and I had enough time to go sightseeing. But after all, the guide is very nice. He was knowledgeable and told me a lot of fun stories while driving.

Tour to Valensole and the Verdon gorges

A beautiful day, immersed in the purple of lavender, in the yellow of sunflowers, in the crystalline green of Lake St. Croix. Thanks to the guide Fred, very nice and prepared.

The tour is great with good time arrangement so the participants can enjoy some activities voluntarily e.g. having boat ride in saints-croix. The guide is also very friendly.
