What You Can Expect

Small Group Provence and Lavender Museum Day Trip from Avignon

Discover the beautiful lavender fields of Provence on your day trip from Avignon

The tour takes you to Sault, the lavender capital of Provence, or for a photo stop on the picturesque Claparedes plateau. There's free time and a lunch stop in Sault or the ochre-hued town of Roussillon to shop for floral essences, soaps, honey and all manner of scented products in the lavender shops.

You'll then take a drive across wild lavender fields, passing small villages including St. Jean and Lioux. You'll stop to visit the dry-stone village of Gordes, one of the most beautiful villages in France.

After a photo stop at Senanque Abbey, a Cistercian monument surrounded by a wonderful lavender field (in bloom mid-June to mid-July), it's on to the famous lavender museum in Coustellet. You'll learn all there is to know about lavender from the informative video, exhibition and demonstration of distillation.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2013

Beautiful! Loved all the stops on the way as well. Appreciated the independence we were also given at each site. Perhaps could have been a bit shorter, however obviously the amount of time spent on the tour was necessary for transit purposes. Overall a great experience and highly recommended!
