Trip Info

Enjoy a private full day architectural tour from Avignon. We will visit Gordes to see stone homes built along the hillside and wind around the chateau, which crowns the village. There is an open-air market on Tuesday morning. The Senanque Abbey, built in the 12th century by Cistercian monks, is one of the most beautiful Romanesque abbeys in Provence. Senanque is still lived in by the monks.

In Roussillon, you will discover a small village, which is also ranked among the most beautiful villages of France. It is famous for its ochre cliffs streaked with color from the brightest yellows to the deepest reds. Ochre is everywhere, in the landscapes and in the washes used on the houses. Enjoy the many hues as you stroll through the streets and squares of Roussillon.

On the way to Bonnieux, you will discover The Pont Julien. It is on the antique Via Domitia, the main trade road linking Italy to Spain through the south of Gaul. The building of the roman bridge was achieved in the year 3 BC.

At Bonnieux, on the summit, behind the old church, cedars and pines stands up and make a place for rest and admire an awesome view on the surroundings.

See the amazing wonders of Lacoste. The village has winding streets with stone houses, the Marquis de Sade Castle and the splendid view onto the village of Bonnieux.

Enjoy the village of Menerbes, ranked among the most beautiful villages in France.
