- The Pont du Gard
It is located in the heart of a beautiful region, is one of the very special highlights. This engineering feat, built by the Romans in the 1st century BC, was part of a 50-meter long aqueduct which carried waters from Uzès to Nîmes.
- Les Baux-de-Provence
The road up to Les Baux from the southeast passes trough olive groves and vineyards. And after...the sightseeing is amazing. There are incredible rock formations in this part of the Alpilles, with the road seemingly cut through thre solid rock with single strokes of some giant’s knife. The village area is a stone and cobblestone medieval village.
Visit of Saint-Paul de Mausole monastery, which became an asylum in the 19th century. Van Gogh took refuge here in 1889/18890 just before killing himself.
- Stop in a lavender farm during the blooming season. June 15th to July 31st.
Situated in the Luberon, the village of Roussillon is situated in the heart of one of the biggest ocher deposits in the world, Roussillon is famous for its magnificent red cliffs and ocher quarries. The red, yellow and brown shades of the earth form a striking contrast with the lush green pinetrees. The vivid blue of the Provençal sky and the exceptional quality of light make this a magical site
The stone homes are built along the hillside and winding around the château which crowns the village. Standing on the edge of the plateau of Vaucluse (Vaucluse Mountains), Gordes is one of the "in" villages of Luberon where many movies stars and artists have made their home. Its houses of white and gray stone rise up in a spiral around the rock where the village is set. At the very top is the church and the castle which face out onto the hills of the Luberon
- Abbey of Senanque
Lavender fields of Abbey are blooming from June 15th to July 31th.
