What you can expect
Your guide will pick you up in the morning at Arles Board your private vehicle and take the road towards your first stop: l'Isle sur la Sorgue. This village is a little paradise of greenery and flowing water, as several branches of the Sorgue river are flowing through the town, and used to drive many water wheels which are still turning. In the historical city centre, have a stroll in the winding streets and canals junctions.
Back to your vehicle and head towards Gordes, built on the rocky mountains. You will walk in its narrow streets, and enjoy the shady squares and graceful fountains. Sense the history and activity that have shaped both the architecture and the people. Enter the workshops of the tradesmen and artisans.
Afterwards, your guide will take you to Roussillon and explore the stairs and streets in the old village. See the vaulted passageways, the lovely houses from the 17th and 18th century, the cliff which provides fabulous views, the clock tower and its campanile, the vestiges of the ramparts, partially rebuilt in modern times and the remains of the 10th century castle.
Move towards Bonnieux where you will enjoy the panoramic view. Observe the old 13th century church with its combination of Romanesque and Gothic styles, the ruins of the 12th century towers and ramparts, Hôtel de Rouville, a beautiful 18th century residence and the Philippe tower.
Finally, your last stop is the village of Menerbes where you will have the opportunity to taste Côtes du Luberon wines at the magnificent Maison de la Truffe et du Vin (open from April 1st to October 31st - own expense).
At the end of the tour, your guide will drive you back to Arles.
