Private Tour / Shore Excursion from Marseille
During the tour, you will visit 3 villages who are classified as some of the most beautiful villages of France.
Ménerbes: From the top of the village you can admire a wonderful panorama of the Vallee du Luberon. You can also visit the House of the Truffle and Wine to discover the variety of the wine produced in this area.
Roussillon : It owes its name to the reddish colour of its houses. Located in the heart of one of the biggest ocher sites in the world, Roussillon is famous for its magnificent red cliffs and ocher quarries.
Gordes : This very beautiful old village is perched on the southern edge of the high Plateau de Vaucluse. It seems to be an unbelievable "stone cascade" : the stone houses are built in tight against the base of the cliffs and others are perched on the rocks above, and all together are topped by a 12th-century which reminds the passer-by of a past rich with conquests but also marked with the sufferings of its inhabitants.
