Lavender fields of Provence & Forcalquier provençal street markets private tour

Be totally immersed in the exquisite natural beauty of the Lavender fields of the Valensole plateau on a full-day private guided tour from Marseille or Aix-en-Provence. Drive across the fields of the Valensole plateau covered in lavender blooms as you travel on to some of the most enchanting and exceptional villages in Provence. Visit the tiny village of Valensole, the fortified village of Forcalquier and Simiane La Rotonde that sit against the backdrop of the Luberon mountain range. Browse artisanal lavender shops and markets as well as see for yourself the production of the Lavender planting and essential oils. These are small group private tours so you are assured of a very special day out in the region. The Lavender season is short, so enjoy this at its best - June through July is idea, although we do offer the tour throughout the year, but with a slight variation on the day. Historic tiny Provençal villages, ancient markets and medieval towns & the culture of the south of France.
