Visit two of the most beautiful French villages


Discover the two jewels of Provence: The villages of Gordes and Roussillon in the Luberon.
Gordes, one of the most well-known hilltop villages in Provence, is a marvel to visit. Admire the white dry stone buildings and "calades" (cobblestones streets), rooted in the cliffs. Learn everything about the "Bories" (small ancient dry stone shelters) and the 12th century Senanque Abbey, surroundered by lavender fieds. Gordes is one of the most famous touristic landmarks of the Luberon.
Just a few kilometers from Gordes, the village of Roussillon shows a totally different picture of a Provençal village.

In Roussillon, the ochre village, you will be able to walk in the narrow shaded busy streets, visit the art galleries and handcraft shops. Along the ochre trail, enjoy the ochre cliffs and the enchanting colours of Provence.
The day-trip will finish by a visit in one of the numerous local vineyards for a wine tasting session.

A Recent Review of this tour

Nathalie did an excellent job taking us to the Luberon! She arrived early to our hotel, had ice cold water for us in her clean car and was a joy to spend the day with. She is very knowledgeable about the area and her love and passion for the South of France is evident. Her English is perfect, so easy to understand. When we wanted to spend extra time at a sight, it was no problem. I imagine we will come back to the South of France and we will definitely use Nathalie again! Highly recommend her!!
