Full description

Spend an afternoon discovering the Luberon region's most charming villages. Depart from Avignon in an air-conditioned minibus and explore the picturesque villages of Lacoste, Ménerbes, Roussillon, and Gordes with a guide.

From the meeting point in Avignon, set off to the village of Lacoste, once the residence of the Marquis de Sade, for a photo stop. Then, continue to Ménerbes, a village that became famous due to Peter Mayle's book A Year in Provence. Enjoy free time to discover the village.

On the way to Roussillon, take a look at the Roman bridge Pont Julien, one of the numerous Roman remains in Provence. Arrive in Roussillon and admire how the village is built at the top of an ochre cliff, as well as the ochre-washed façades of its buildings. Next, head toward Gordes, another village erected on the top of a cliff, and discover its fortified castle and church. See the village's typical houses, built from the rock on which they stand, before returning to Avignon.

The driver behavior is overall nice. However I was not appreciated the first stop was lavender museum shop, I felt obligated to purchase the goods, otherwise we can not to leave immediately to next sight place. Also one place he gave us too much free time and other place did not give me tie other than taking photo. I had to beg him to stop 5 minutes.
