What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Provence Lavender Fields and Aix-en-Provence Day Trip from Marseille

Valensole Village

Leave your centrally located Marseille hotel by air-conditioned minivan and travel inland with your guide to the elegant Provencal town of Aix-en-Provence. Stroll through Aix’s streets on a walking tour and browse the wares at one of the town’s bustling markets.

After exploring, enjoy some time at leisure in the town to soak up the ambiance and have lunch (own expense). Your guide will happily give you tips for the best places to eat or to simply sit and watch the world go by.

Meet your guide back at a pre-arranged time, and leave Aix by minivan to travel to the stunning Valensole Plateau – an area that bursts to life in the summer with a fragrant abundance of lavender and almond trees. Aptly translated from Latin as ‘valley of the sun,' Valensole is perfectly positioned with its warm climate and fertile ground to grow huge swathes of lavender. As you travel through its picture-perfect streets, stop for photos in the magnificent lavender fields, and then explore Valensole village at leisure, perhaps shopping for lavender flowers and essential oils to take home.

Return to Marseille in the late afternoon, passing through more picturesque stretches of Provence countryside on the way to the coast. Your tour ends back at your Marseille hotel.
