What You Can Expect

Provence Lavender Small Group Half-Day Trip

Depending on the time of the season, visit the village of Roussillon on your half-day tour

Your morning or afternoon small-group tour begins with pickup from your Avignon hotel. Take a seat in the comfortable minivan and admire the scenery as you traverse the Provençal countryside, laced with fields of lavender. Your guide will make frequent stops, giving you plenty of opportunity to take photos. 

Visitors on the 4-hour morning tour will make a stop in Sault, Roussillon or Gordes; your guide will choose whichever town offers the most abundant blooms of the moment. In town, you’ll visit the village’s lavender markets and purchase authentic local products from flowers to lavender-scented honey and essential oils.

If you opt for the 5-hour evening tour, you’ll have additional time in the village to independently explore, after which you’ll head to the Lavender Museum in Coustellet. En route, pass through the sweet Provençal villages of St Jean and Lioux. At the museum, learn more about the tradition and cultivation of lavender farming in Provence and discover the many versatile products that are infused with lavender flowers. 

Your tour ends with drop-off at your Avignon hotel by early afternoon or evening, depending on start time.

We really enjoyed this tour. Even this is at the end of the Lavender season, but we got to see the harvest, the distill process and especially smelled the nice fragrant in the field.

Even though it was very late in the season, our driver took us right to fields of still-blooming lavender. We learned a lot from our driver, not only about lavender, but about Provence In general. I highly recommend this tour.

This tour is an excellent way to see the lavender fields. It's much easier than driving yourself as the guide knew exactly where to go to find the fields which were in flower at that time, meaning there were lots of photo opportunities. He was very knowledgeable, telling us all about the different types of lavender and the distillation process. It was also interesting to be able to visit the farm where they extract the lavender oil. The transport was comfortable and air conditioned and we were collected from right outside the hotel. The morning tour is a good choice to avoid the afternoon heat.

It was a perfect day and a perfect time to visit the lavender fields. We saw lavender that was blooming, recently harvested and the sheaves of harvested lavender. The tour guide knew all about the lavender as well as the sights on the trip to the lavender fields.
