    hrs Estimate Duration
  • Sightseeing


Explore some of the most photogenic destinations in the Luberon, an area in the heart of Provence known for its forested valleys, craggy limestone hills and medieval villages. While meandering along the narrow cobbled streets of Lourmarin you will surely be inspired, much like Winston Churchill, who painted there in his later years. Roussillon is even more colorful as much of the village is tinted with red, orange and yellow ochre pigments quarried nearby. Following the guided tour, during which you may see Roussillon’s historical yellow-hued St-Michel Church, you will enjoy free time to wander about and dine on your own. Lavender takes center stage in Coustellet. In early summer, the purplish flower blankets the surrounding hills and is so synonymous with the village that there is a Lavender Museum. While browsing the exhibits, you will learn how lavender is harvested and distilled to create essential oil for soaps and perfumes.

• Wander about the cobbled streets of Lourmarin and the ochre-tinted village of Roussillon.
