June Lavender Tour in Provence Experience the Magic

Magical Lavender

Spotting a lavender field in flower for the first time is magical, but it’s the fragrance that is heavenly. The tiny plants stretch towards the horizon, like small purple streams. It’s little wonder why you see so many images of people posing against this stunning backdrop. Lavender fields, cobalt blue skies and a glass (or two) of Provencal wine. Has a trip to Provence been on your travel bucket list for a while?

Travel specialist Emily Durand is the founder of Your Private Provence (YPP). Her small-group lavender tours have been sellouts since they first launched, and 2019 is no exception. Emily is an American who has lived in Provence for over 20 years, and her philosophy is to design authentic Provencal experiences for her clients.

In 2020, the YPP Lavender & Cultural Tour runs from June 27 – July 2nd. The scented ribbons of lavender plants are your chance for stunning photos-ops. However, Provence has more to offer to its visitors than lavender, and this YPP tour is designed to include some of these places of interest.

Luberon Views in Provence from Taillades

Unpack and settle into the delightful 4-star hotel located in in the heart of the historic town of l’Isle sur la Sorgue. Known for its busy Sunday morning market, l’Isle sur la Sorgue is a magnet for antique lovers with some 200+ dealers. There are still 15 old water wheels that turn lazily as the Sorgue River meanders by the town centre, but at one time these were vital to the industrial heart of the town (read more about the history here).

Bespoke Wine Tour Provence Your Private Provence

What is a trip to Provence without a chance to sample wines from Châteauneuf-du-Pape? No need to worry the YPP tour includes a visit to this winemaking region for wine tasting and to discover the town’s historical roots.

Book Your Spot

This YPP tour is as well-balanced as some of the Rhône Valley wine blends. It’s your chance to “Tour Provence with a perfect mix of culture and lavender.” Enjoy the tantalizing flavours of Provencal cuisine prepared by a local chef. Visit Orange and marvel the city’s amazing Roman theatre. Discover the charming perched villages of the Luberon and the chic town of St Remy de Provence, in the Alpilles, where Vincent Van Gogh painted some of his famous canvases. All of that with enough downtime to return home re-energized!
