What you will visit:

Lourmarin
Picturesque Lourmarin sits at the foot of the Luberon massif and dates back to the Neolithic era. The town itself is dominated by the Renaissance castle, which is built high on a rock and is now a classified historical monument. Listed among the most beautiful villages of France, Lourmarin is also home to novelist Peter Mayle, who wrote the best-seller A Year in Provence.


Roussillon
One of the prettiest villages of the Luberon massif, the town is situated in the heart of one of the biggest ochre deposits in the world. You will be able to see how the cliffs are composed of yellow, red and white sands, combined with sandstones and ores. This color scheme runs throughout the village, which features charming squares, vivid flower displays, and fascinating architecture.

Coustellet and Lavender Factory and Museum
Lavender is the iconic symbol of Provence, and visitors flock to Coustellet in the summertime to immerse themselves in the spectacular fragrance and color of its endless lavender fields. A visit to the nearby lavender factory and museum is an opportunity to discover the history and uses of lavender amid a deep purple backdrop.

What you will see along the way:
Settle in for a scenic motorcoach drive through the iconic Provencal countryside. Your drive includes views of the Luberon mountain massif, one of the most beautiful natural sites in the region, where you will be enthralled by the striking panoramas, picturesque hill-top villages and incredible rocky landscapes.
