What You Can Expect

Small Group Provence and Lavender Museum 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 (in bloom mid-June to mid-July), 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

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

Our experience on this trip was fantastic…from booking all the way to the end of the trip…Everything was easy, fun and stress-free. Our driver and guide was wonderful: friendly, helpful, and great company in showing us around Avignon. He even helped us get some great spots for photos with less frequented tourists. Overall, the trip was wonderful and would recommend it to anyone interested in visiting the area. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Viola! Lavendin was blooming only at this time, but the vibrant fields of purple were just as gorgeous. (lavendin is a hybrid of fine lavender) the museum at the end was a nice touch and the shopping in the village Sault was excellent. Tip: buy lavender goods at the market with cash -- they're just as excellent quality but without the high prices at the museum shop! visited many lovely villages which were also scenic, making it not just a day full of lavender, but Provence in general.
