Description

Discover the Provencal backcountry by minibus. Spend the afternoon strolling through the beautiful villages of Lubéron, soaking up the colors and scents of Southern France!

Your minibus will set off from Aix en Provence for the village of Bonnieux. On the way, you’ll pass through the Combe de Lourmarin, a natural valley carved by a river flowing from the Luberon mountain range.

When you stop in Bonnieux, you’ll get a splendid view of Cavalon valley, the Ventoux and Vaucluse mountains, as well as the small hilltop villages scattered throughout Luberon.

The excursion then carries on towards Rousillon, crossing the Pont Julien on the way, a bridge built by the request of Julius Cesar. The minibus will make a stop-off here, giving you time to take photos of the impressive 2,000-year-old edifice.

You’ll then visit the region’s vast fields of lavender. Known locally as 'blue gold', its flowers possess a delicate scent that is eternally associated with the landscapes of Provence. After the lavender fields, you’ll move on to explore Rousillon village

Located on the site one of the world’s largest ocher deposits, Rousillon has a distinct charm. Its buildings are built from different shades of the rock; the yellow, orange and red tones of the façades striking a stark contrast to the deep blue sky. The resulting effect is reminiscent of a painter’s palette, and it’s hardly surprising that Rousillon is considered one of the most beautiful villages in France!

At the end of your day, your driver will bring you back to Aix en Provence.
