Full description

Discover France’s most scenic landscapes on a full-day trip to Castellane, Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, and the Verdon Gorge from Nice. See the iconic Lavender Fields and learn about these picturesque locations from your guide.

Be picked up from your hotel or home address in Nice. Depart with your driver to the hills of your countryside destination.

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), enjoy spectacular views of the 700-meter-deep canyon.

Afterward, 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.

Discover the earthenware in the stores, and buy souvenirs before lunch in one of the terrace cafes. Photograph the world-famous lavender platters, or enjoy the lake of St. Croix, an artificial treasure of clear water which is one of the most beautiful lakes of Provence.

Then, marvel at the endless lavender fields at the foot of the Alps and stop to take unique and memorable pictures with this impressive backdrop. Stop to smell the light and enchanting lavender aroma surrounding you as you do.

After enjoying your trip, return to your vehicle at which point you will be driven back to your point of origin in Nice.

    Great tour overall: with breathtaking views, definitely worth the money in my opinion. A bit disappointed that the tour doesn’t include spending more time at the lake, we only had about 10min to take some quick pictures, which felt a bit rushed. The lake is beautiful and they’re water activities such as kayaking, which we couldn’t do unfortunately because of the very little time allocated to that part of the tour. Would definitely recommend!

    Parfait was our guide and we couldn’t ask for better! We had exceptional difficult people on out tour (as it wasn’t a private tour) and he handled them so well. Also the cleanest car I’ve ever had a tour in and you can see he has a passion for what he’s doing. Highly recommend…!

    Our driver/tour guide Mr Chiu was awesome! He was effectively multilingual and could communicate well in English, French and Chinese. He was also punctual, very skilled in driving, informative and introduced us to great places, and fetched us to and fro our accommodation. He even went out of the way to help take very beautiful photos of us especially at the lavender fields! Thank you for the great service and tour! :)
