PRIVATE TOUR IN LAVENDER AND GORGES DU VERDON
The day will start by the visit of one of the most unforgettable azure sceneries of the region. Bathed in sunshine more than three hundred days a year, the Valensole plateau will offer you a unique overview of endless lavender fields. At the heart of these chalky and dry lands, you will be able to inhale fragrances from a traditional distillery. You will learn all the secrets (or almost) from the transformation of the flower – whose color gives its name – into a perfume, cosmetic or medicinal product. To perfect your knowledge of the flower, of visit of the Lavender Museum will conclude this stopover.
After reaching Riez, you will be able to take a stroll at the heart of this typical Verdun’s village though its numerous shops. You will notice the particular connection the locals have with water, particularly by the multiple fountains and wash houses inside the village. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, you will enjoy taking a trip at this small town’s market, bordering “hot” Provence and alpine Provence.
At crossroads between Gorges du Verdon and the lavender road, you will enjoy one of the most beautiful villages in France. On top of its architecture, this ancient winegrowing town is today internationally known for its earthenware. Admirable from the top of the Notre-Dame-de-Beauvoir chapel (that goes from the Maire valley up until the Valensole plateau), the Moustiers-Sainte-Marie’s decors will stay forever in your mind!
Gorges du Verdon
The afternoon will start by a natural trip at the Sainte-Croix lake. On its edges, you will be transported by the smell of thyme, rosemary or lavender adjoining the pure and turquoise water of France’s 3rd greatest lake. A short walk will let you enjoy from far your previous halts of the day.
To end this beautiful day, you will get the chance to visit the Occitane en Provence’s museum as well as its gorgeous gardens. You will evaluate the fabrication authenticity of these unmissable provençal cosmetics, by an immersion inside their factory.
