  • Photograph the Magnifique Lavender Fields
  • Visit Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, a medieval village known for its rich history in ceramic handicrafts
Full description
Your driver will pick you up at your hotel or your home address in Nice at 8:00AM, at which point you will depart in an air-conditioned car to the hills of your countryside destination. You will cross the "gorge of the wolf", complete with its 40-meter-high waterfall, before stopping at Castellane. Whilst traveling along the Verdon (named for its astonishing turquoise green color), you will be able to enjoy spectacular views of the 700-meter-deep canyon. Afterwards, you will move on to the village of Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, nestled under a rocky cliff and surrounded by mountains from all sides. Known for its rich history in ceramic craftsmanship, you will have free time here to explore Moustiers at your leisure. You can discover the earthenware in the many stores, and buy souvenirs before lunch in one of the terrace cafes. Afterwards, photograph the world famous lavender platters, or enjoy the lake of St. Croix, an artificial treasure of clear and pure water which is one of the most beautiful lakes of Provence. After enjoying your trip, you will return to your vehicle at which point you will be driven back to your point of origin in Nice.

    I recommend this excursion for people wanting to visit the Gorges du Verdon from Nice. The day is long, but with Raphaël's good humor we did not even see him pass. The landscapes are magnificent. Raphaël was not stingy with very interesting information and comments throughout the visit. We made a first stop (40min) at the village of Castellane and another one hour stop at Moustier-Sainte-Marie to visit and have lunch. We also stopped (15min) to see the Gorges du Verdon from above. Raphaël even offered to take a picture of ourselves. We then pedaled in Lake Sainte-Croix for 1 hour before starting the return trip. All this in a very good atmosphere. Thanks for this moment! PS: having made this trip at the beginning of September, we did not see the lavender fields. It didn't bother me at all because Raphaël warned us about it and because it allowed us to spend more time in the gorges.

    Thank you very much for a very professionally organized trip! Was a really professional guide, with excellent language skills and local knowledge. It was great to be on a trip, which for once did not have to take care of schedules and places to visit, but getting on the bus at the right time was enough!

    This tour show a lot during one day: villages, nature, and laveder fields of course. Most of them were harvested already but we found two nice fields. Our guide was very friendly and helpful. Recommend not to leave this tour in the end of July, if you want to see the lavender fields.
