Saint-Remy, Maussane & les Baux de Provence with a local guide


One of the most beautiful areas in Provence is awaiting you!
Reach it by the splendid countryside covered with olive trees.

Maussane-les-Alpilles, typical little town of Provence is a perfect introduction, the coffee shop terrasses of the central square near the church, a walk by the wash house, the traditional shops, the sycomore trees ; you are in Provence !

Les Baux probably offers the best panorama in Provence, it is also one of the most famous village in France!
You will love strolling in charming St-Remy village, the place where Van Gogh spent the last year of his life, surrounded by olive trees and Roman ruins.

The view over the countryside from Eygalieres is just unforgettable and the village is off the beaten track. Today some stars and millionaires love this preserved part of Provence, a little heaven.

So let's go for a scenic, informative and friendly sightseeing tour among vineyards, olive trees and sunflower fields to explore the very best of the Provence region.
