Our guests explore medieval villages: Gordes, Roussillon, Bonnieux, Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, les Baux, Ménerbes (famous for Peter Mayle's books on Provence); Châteaux and abbeys in the Luberon countryside: Lacoste (home to the castle of the Marquis de Sade), the Abbaye de Sénanque; the Palace of the Popes in Avignon; and such Roman wonders as the Antiques in St.Rémy-de-Provence and the Arena in Arles. You will also visit famous Côtes-du-Rhône wineries, including Châteauneuf-du-Pape, antique and food markets in Isle-sur-Sorgue, art galleries and artist sudios, and shop for Provençal fabrics, lavender perfumes and soaps, and visit the Lavender Museum.
