The Alpilles and Les Baux with a Licensed Tour Guide


Les Alpilles, this small mountain range became a world famous image of Provence!

At the end of his life Van Gogh combined his genius with the light of this land to offer the world countless masterpieces. You will discover the treasures of this regional park where every sight is a postcard.

Drive through the gorgeous countryside, on the side roads we love, and discover:
The roman aqueduct of Fontvieille, a journey through time and local traditions.
Les Baux, a legend of Provence, a must see village with the famous valley of Hell
The quarries of lights (optional), ancient bauxite quarries with a multimedia show unique in the world!
Saint-Rémy-de-Provence where Van Gogh spent a year, between antique roman ruins and olive trees, a little town where the only problem is finding the strength to leave!
Eygalières is Provence personified a small definition of France and its lifestyle.
On the picturesque "liberty road", you will discover the iconic chapel Saint-Sixte.
