Between the Alpe de haute provence and the Vaucluse plain, the bold outline of the Luberon Mountain rises up: this is the symbol of the area, a mountain which brings the area together rather than separates. From the valleys of Calavon in the north, to the Durance in the south, the natural link for these "pays du Luberon" which sway gently around its feet.

This is the real Provence, full of character. A sweet dolce vita of a climate and pure clean air which just breathes the incredible contrasts between a rich, and variable natural environment :the blue strides of lavender, the subtle nuances of green in the forests, the flamboyant and blinding colours of the cliffs of ochre, or the austere white of the limestone hills.

This is the living Luberon, where everything goes back to "man’s» relationship with the basic element, earth. The dry stone walls and bories, the imposing "bastides", villages perched on the sides of hills between church and château of which some are extremely famous: Lourmarin, Gordes , Manosque, Roussillon..., and others less well known but nevertheless just as attractive, like Vaugines or Mirabeau, where "Jean de Florette" and "Manon des Sources" were filmed.... and lots of other places just waiting to be discovered.

First stop with a visit of Bonnieux

The village of Bonnieux, perched on a rocky outcropping near the pass between the Petit Luberon and Grand Luberon mountains. This is an outstanding and very central location in the valley north of the Luberon mountain.

Then continue with a visit of Rousillon & Les Ocres

The ochre of the Luberon fascinates. From Roussillon to Gignac, by way of Villars, Gargas and Rustrel, the former ochre quarries of the Apt valley (Vaucluse) surge from the past, hiking trails have been blazed, panoramic viewpoints opened up, signs of bygone days brought up to date and car parks can be found.

The Abbaye Notre-Dame de Sénanque is a lovely medieval Cistercian abbey that is one of the best places to see Provence's famed lavender fields. Founded in 1148 and once again populated by Cistercian monks, the peaceful abbey welcomes visitors and provides overnight retreats.

End of the day with a visit of Gordes

Gordes is a very beautiful old village, perched on the southern edge of the high Plateau de Vaucluse. The stone buildings built in tight against the base of the cliffs and those perched on the rocks above, including the 12th-century castle, are made of an beige stone that glows orange in the morning sun. The view from the village is a southern panorama out across fields and forests and small perched villages to the Montagne du Luberon

Our lifeline in Paris

Both of our airport drivers were excellent, and it was so reassuring knowing that they were there to pick us up and drop us off. Giverny was gorgeous, and our tour guide Paul really made the experience memorable. Our contact Edwige confirmed everything and made sure we were taken care of during our trip.

There were a lot of moving parts in our trip, that started in Paris, went through Reims and Champagne, to Strasbourg and Alsace, to Annecy and then Geneva. W arranged for terrific guides, one more knowledgeable and interesting after the next. The drivers were very friendly and accommodating. We had a wonderful cooking class in Alsace. Just a perfectly arranged trip.

Beautiful Day In the Rhone Valley

By: Jessica L

Reviewed on: 27 Sep 2017

I had an incredible day with Laurent in the Northern Rhone Valley. I have always wanted to see the vineyards of Cote Rotie and Condrieu. Laurent was so knowledgable about not only the wine regions, but also the food, history, and architecture of the region. His hospitality was also very genuine as I could tell he was very concerned about my personal expectations and goals of the tour. I learned so much in one day that I now have to go back to do more exploration of the things I wasn't able to read about on-line when doing some studying prior to my trip. Laurent completely exceeded all of my expectations and I would recommend his tour services to anyone looking to explore this region of France.

Champagne Tour


Reviewed on: 22 Oct 2017

While visiting Paris, we decided to take a day trip to Champagne. W Travel France provided the transportation and itinerary. We could not have spent a more enjoyable day in Champagne. Our guide arranged for visits to two Champagne houses (one small and one large) for tastings and lunch at a local brasserie, all the while educating us on the history of the region. Very well done!
