On this privately guided shore excursion from Marseille your private guide will take you to discover one of the most picturesque areas of Provence, the Luberon mountains. The region of these majestic peaks, more than 3,500 feet above sea level, offer an endearing combination of lonely wild spaces and charming little villages.
Much of the Luberon range is protected as a parkland, where you can find more than 1,000 different species of plants and incredible oak and cedar forests that are home to eagles, hawks, snakes, beavers and the biggest lizards in Europe, among other fauna.
Luberon was also the stage for the first battles between Catholics and Protestants in the 16th century.
The first stop of this private custom tour will be the lovely town of Loumarin, where you will visit a stately Renaissance castle; you will then cross the mountains to reach the town of Bonnieux, known for its 12th century ramparts and church, from which you can enjoy a gorgeous view of the surrounding landscape.
You will continue with your guide towards another charming town called Lacoste, where you can visit the ruins of the Marquis de Sade Castle.
Your day will conclude in Roussillon, Provence’s most colorful village, with its brilliant red and ocher cliffs.
