Lavender Fields Private Tour from Aix en Provence

 

If you come to Provence you can't miss one of the symbols the region: the lavender fields. The best time to enjoy these endless fields is from mid-June to mid-July. Deluxe France takes you to a Lavender Fields Private Tour where you get to see not only the best lavender landscapes but other charming places that you will love.

 

Explore and enjoy the beauty of these landscapes driving through the Plateau de Valensole where lavender and almond trees offer a spectacular scenery. You will have the chance to stop as many times as you wish to take beautiful pictures in the fields. You will the be taken Riez, a very authentic village of Provence. Strolling through the streets of the village feels like crossing centuries of history! The village is quite charming with its ancient boutiques, the centennial plane trees as well as the ancient lavoirs. 

 

Later, reach the town of Moustiers Sainte Marie, famous worldwide for its fine earthenware and ceramics. Learn about the story behind the golden star hanging on a chain over the town and discover the amazing heritage of the medieval city walls and the 12th century romanesque church.

 

If you like walking, it is worth going to the top of the village and climbing up 262 steps to visit Notre Dame de Beauvoir a chapel that is believed to have been built by Charlemagne in the 9th century. From this place you can enjoy an amazing view that overlooks the red roofs and the valley. By the end of the tour, your driver will take you back to your hotel in Aix en Provence.
