Your vacation in Provence is not complete without one of our exciting Provence private day tours.
This delightful Provence day trip is a treat for the senses. Your private guided tour begins with a trip to Les Baux de Provence, famous for its medieval hilltop castle and village carved right out of the cliff face. Cars are banned from the steep, winding streets, so you will have a brisk walk up the hill to the sights.
Next, your guided tour of the Provence countryside will continue to a goat-breeding farm, where you will sample several creamy goat cheeses. The “Banon” is the king of Provençal cheeses. Wrapped in chestnut leaves, this goat cheese has the AOC label (Appellation of Controlled Origin) as well as the “Dieulefit” or the “Tomme d’Arles.” As you tour the facility, your guide will explain the curing process, which follows different methods and produces various flavors depending on the region.
After lunch, your private tour in Provence will continue to Gordes, a beautiful medieval village with stone houses perched on the hillside, and Roussillon, known for rich ochre deposits that paint the landscape various shades of reddish-orange. This area is right on the Lavender Trail, transformed with fragrant purple blossoms in July and August. Your private guided tour will finish with a wine toast in a famous “Côtes du Luberon” winery.
