On this private tour from Marseille, visit the chic town of Aix-en-Provence and cross the breathtaking Valensole Plateau.

  • Full-day tour to the Provence lavender fields with a private guide
  • Explore Aix-en-Provence’s bustling markets and spend time at leisure in the town
  • Stop for photos in the vibrant lavender fields of Valensole Plateau
  • Enjoy the heady scents of aromatic lavender and thyme while strolling through Valensole village

Your private, full-day tour through the enchanting Provençal countryside begins with morning pickup from your central Marseille hotel. Take a seat in the comfortable minivan and relax as you set off for the short northbound journey to Aix-en-Provence. There, you’ll have time to tour at your leisure. Get some insider tips from your guide before taking off to visit Aix’s artisan markets, parks, decorated fountains and boulevards full of boutiques, cafés and eateries. Grab some lunch (own expense) before leaving town for your trip through Provence’s lavender country.
Next, journey to the Valensole Plateau, where blankets of lavender stretch over the horizon. A Latin-based word meaning ‘valley of the sun,’ Valensole combines the warm Mediterranean climate with rich earth – the perfect environment for growing lavender and almond trees. Breathe in the fragrant breeze as you snap photos and explore the quaint Valensole village. Take in the charm of this sleepy town and pop into a market or boutique to purchase a fresh bouquet of lavender or some essential oils.  
Your private tour of Provence ends with a leisurely ride through the countryside back to your Marseille hotel. You’ll arrive by mid-afternoon.
