Provence: walk in a typical food market
Provence is known all over the world for its tasty cuisine. But there cannot be good food without good products. Strolling in the famous market of Provence is a nice occasion to understand why what you have on your plate is so genuine and delightful. You will be stunned by the bright and intense colors of olives, spices, fruits and vegetables; by the smell of the delicatessen, cheese and wine; but also by the crowd and the screaming sellers competing to attract you to their products!
Les Baux-de-Provence belongs to the labeled group of the "Most Beautiful Villages of France". This impregnable village is located in the heart of the Alpilles. The fortifications give an interesting example of the defensive architecture in the XIth to the XIIIth century. The main relic of this mighty stronghold is the castle crowned by a massive keep. Les Baux-de-Provence is a must-see on your Provencal experience.
After a view of this breathtaking landscape, we will stop for a tour and olive oil tasting in the Baux de Provence Valley followed by lunch at a traditional restaurant with local products. (Optional wine tasting lunch at a local domain – a great experience to discover local wine! – please let us know if that is your preference and we can add it to your proposal)
At the end of this extraordinary and genuine discovery of Les Alpilles area your guide will drive you back to Aix-en-Provence train station or to your hotel in Aix-en-Provence area.
