Experience the lavender fields of Provence on a morning or afternoon trip from Avignon. Discover the beauty of the Luberon massif and marvel at medieval villages on the hilltops. Visit the charming settlements of Gordes, Roussillon or Sault.
What to Expect
Depart Avignon and head for the Luberon massif where, depending on the season, you can see the famous lavender fields in bloom. Pass the villages of Luberon and discover the hidden 12th-century Sénanque Abbey of the Cistercian order, or drive to the lavender capital in the mountain village of Sault.
Travel along roads surrounded by lavender fields on the way to Gordes, and stop for a fantastic photo opportunity at a unique viewpoint. Encounter a small community of monks who live a life of real austerity, according to strict orders and far from worldly temptations. Go to Sénanque Abbey, isolated from the rest of the world except when the lavender fields are in bloom, and enjoy a photo stop with some free time to walk around the building and library.
Get a stunning view of the Provencal Colorado, and spend some time in the lavender fields of Roussillon, noted for the ochre pigments from its former quarries. When the Luberon lavender season is over, go to the capital of the region at Sault, and spend some time at leisure in the many lavender fields surrounding the village.
