What You Can Expect

Les Baux de Provence Tour from Avignon: Provencal Wine and Olive Oil

Les Baux de Provence Village

Leave your central Avignon hotel by air-conditioned minivan and head to Les Baux de Provence – a breathtakingly beautiful medieval town perched on a rocky hilltop. Famous for its sweeping views over the Provencal countryside, the charming town was once a stone fortress from which the Lords of Les Baux ruled during the 11th and 12th centuries.

After a quick break in the town to stretch your legs, continue your tour to an olive oil mill to see where Provence’s top-notch olive oils are made. Classed as prestigious Appellation d'Origine Controlée (AOC) products, Provencal olive oils are produced under strict governance to guarantee their quality and low acidity. After a tour of the mill to see how the olives are pressed, sample a few of the intensely fruity oils, each made from a blend of different olives.

Hop back into your minivan and travel to the foot of the Chaîne des Alpilles – Provence’s mountain range – to visit one of the region’s famous wine estates. Organic and biodynamic wines account for nearly 85 percent of the region’s wine production, and you’ll taste several of these wines at the estate. Learn how Les Baux wines are defined by Provence’s multi-faceted soils while exploring the vineyards with your guide.

Your tour finishes back at your Avignon hotel in the early afternoon.

Lovely tour! The winery piece was not very involved or informative, but the wine was delicious! The olive oil piece was very interesting, and delicious as well! The property was beautiful. It was a lovely day!
