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

You’ll be picked up from your Avignon hotel in the morning for your full-day tour. Traveling by 8-passenger minivan, enjoy scenic views as you drive through Provence’s lavender fields in full summer bloom — a truly beautiful sight!

Stop in the village of Sault or Roussillon — depending on which is most in bloom — for free time to wander town by foot. Browse lavender shops selling exquisite essential oils, soaps and honey, and visit a traditional open-air market selling a shimmering palette of fruit, vegetables and flowers. You’ll also have time for lunch (own expense).

Continue driving along Provence’s picturesque country roads across wild lavender fields and past small villages including St Jean and Lioux. Stop to visit the dry stone village of Gordes, often considered one of the most beautiful villages in France.

After a photo stop at Senanque Abbey, a Cistercian monument surrounded by a wonderful lavender field (depending on the blooming season this might be replaced by a longer stay at the museum), it's on to the famous Lavender Museum in Coustellet.

Discover the wonders of lavender from the informative video, exhibition and distillation demonstration, revealing how these wonderful flowers are transformed into oils, fragrances and beauty products. You’ll have a chance at the end to purchase some of your own.

Then, relax on the drive back to Avignon, arriving in the evening.

Please note: This tour is seasonal and runs from June to August only. The photo stop at Senanque Abbey is only included from June 15 to July 15. Outside of this time, the tour will include more time in Gordes.

An amazing day, Julian was our tour guide extrodinaire. Brilliant. There aren't enough stars provided to rate it highly enough. I'm not usually one for guided tours, preferring to explore on my own, but this is a Must Do tour! Thank you Julian so much for a great day, awesome people to share it with as well

There are not enough words to describe the beauty of the lavender fields of Provence. This all day tour took us to many breathtaking spots at which we enjoyed the purples and blues of these beautiful flower fields. As an added treat, we also saw a number of fields of sunflowers - Van Gogh's inspiration. The Lavender Museum is included on the trip. Our informative guide was also a masterful driver those mountain roads are not for faint-of-heart drivers.
