Customer Reviews


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

We choose this trip because we had 2 firm interests: the Ochre Path and Gordes.
We had our accomodation in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, so we asked them if we could be picked up there, they confirmed and this is how it happened.
Nico, our driver turned up on time, picked us up, gave us a heads-up on how the day would look like and we hit the road. Nico such a sweet, attentive man gave a little background on every stop and the surrounding landscape, provided a map and let us go, telling us the time and place he would pick us up later. It turned out to be always the right time needed to roam around - except for Roussillon, where we asked for an additional 15 mins. Even with this extra, we finished the day as planned.
First stop, Fountaine, once-home for Petrarca, is a cute little town with such clean and chill air. The river was really low in early September. Peek into Paper Museum free. They were just openening at the Petrarca Museum but we were reluctant to pay 7ish Euros for the entry and we didn't have time, so we skipped it.
Next, Lavender Museum of the Chateau du Bois/Lincele Family in Custellet. Video of the lavender/ine distillation was interesting but stopped short and then we were rushed through the 'museum' by our salesperson. Apparently there was some misunderstanding between the companies. We could just have skipped this.
Next, Abbaye de Senanque, a working monastery, charming and we just cought the end of a mass, less touristy as not in lavender season, nice shop.
Next, Gordes, panorama photoshoot. Lunch sandwiches but restaurant was also recommended, wandering on the lovely streets again, no mood for paying 10ish EUR for the Vasarely exhibition, shame on us.
Next, Roussillon and the Ochre Path entry: 2.50EUR, appr. 25mins, is a must! The village is just so nice, we liked it even more than Gordes.
Last stop, Menerbes, Picasso had a house here, find Joe Downing Park across. Lovely place.
So, in short: totally recommended, worth every penny. Ask for Nico!
