Art and history lovers have the ideal opportunity to learn something of one of France´s most famous authors on a private tour in Aix en Provence and Luberon. Aix en Provence was the birthplace of artist Paul Cezanne and now you can follow in his footsteps to admire the 17th and 18th Century architecture and celebrated hot springs that were transformed into sumptuous spas by the Romans. 

The guided tour of Aix de Provence is best enjoyed in Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays as you head towards the renowned bustling market in the towns historic centre. This massive market is a dream-come-true for the bargain hunter who will find a plethora of Provencal specialities such as goat´s cheese, olive oil, quality fabrics and vegetal soaps. 

In the afternoon, the tour introduces you to stunning mountain scenery for a visit to the quaint mountain villages of the Luberon province. Your first stop is the peaceful village of Lourmarin, regarded as one of the most beautiful in France. Dominated by the hillside chateau, Lourmarin has been a popular retreat for artists and writer for centuries and when you see the natural beauty of the surroundings for yourself it will not be hard to imagine why.

After Lourmarin we move on to the extraordinary village of Bonnieux. Perched on a hillside, this picturesque village offers spectacular view overlooking out over the patchwork of raking vineyards and colourful orchards that cover the Vaucluse plateau. 

The final leg of the private tour in Luberon is to learn about the mysteries of Lacoste which is synonymous with the French philosopher and philanderer the Marquis de Sade who owned a castle in the hills. A private tour in Aix de Provence takes nine hours.
