A primeira parada em sua excursão é em Sault, a capital francesa das lavandas. Visite a vila e uma fazenda de lavanda e descubra o processo de produção dos óleos essenciais de lavanda. A seguir, explore Gordes e pare para uma foto na Abadia de Senanque antes de retornar a Avinhão.
The tour was a bit too rush.
As it is named as a Lavender Fields Tour, I would expect more time in the lavender fields, but turn out only 10 mins in one lavender field, then rush to another field for 10 mins. I would prefer they skip the villages, and just stay in the fields to admire the views and smell the lavenders.
A great tour - lovely French scenery. Four of us took the TGV from Lyon to Avignon TGV station where we were picked up by our guide Thierry. We did 2 more pick ups then off to the countryside. Thierry was extremely knowledgeable and although we asked him a question he didn't know the answer to immediately - as soon as he could he got us the answer. The lavender fields were just magnificent but the whole area is spectacular - a well worth trip to get a real good feel of the French countryside. Gold star to Thierry
Due to a disease, apparently, we saw no big fields of lavender in the first half. All were just cut and dried out. Not very interesting and it seemed like endless driving around. The second half was better and we saw lavender. I would have preferred to drive out, see the village of Sault a little longer and the come back the by same road instead of the circular route. That would have meant more time to see lavender fields, which is what we paid for. It could have been better if the itinerary was more flexible to cater for the situation.
The tour started promptly. Surprisingly we had a full house in the 8 seater. The van was very comfortable for all of us. One request though, it would be better if the driver/guide Eric had some sort of a microphone so that he could talk to all of us without shouting or taking his eyes off the road.
He was very nice and took us to some fantastic places .. the Lavenders were in bloom far in Sault when we were there but he made sure we went to the best fields and had great picture opportunities.
As advertised, this tour is about Lavenders and only lavenders. The halts at Gordes and Sault village was very brief 10-15 minutes so that we could spend more time in Lavender fields. We could see Senanque Abbey from far off since there was not time !!
However, we were in this tour for Lavenders and we did the most possible in 5 hours. If you really want to spend time in Gordes and Sault and Lavender Museum etc. it is better to take a full day tour. But then that will be tiring !!
Great tour concept for those who only want to see Lavenders !!
