GORDES AND THE Luberon - 1 DAY PRIVATE WALKING TOUR

GORDES AND THE Luberon - 1 DAY PRIVATE WALKING TOUR

140

We'll start our guided walk in medieval Gordes - in the heart of the famous Luberon - its homes perched dizzyingly over the Calavon valley and its ancient cobbled streets.

With your expert guide, you'll head out into the thyme-laden hills, on walking paths lined with ancient stone walls and shepherd's huts. The paths will lead us directly to Sénanque Abbey, nestled in the valley and framed by its lavender fields. The 12th century monastery has housed Cistercian monks for the past 850 years. You can visit the abbey before we return to Gordes by foot, on a trail with outstanding aerial views.

  • Departure: 9AM at your hotel in Avignon (or within a radius of 25km around)
  • Return: in the late afternoon around 5PM
  • A FIXED rate: the price is the same from 1 to 4 participants with one guide

After exploring the stunning medieval streets, your guide leads you along the walking paths lined with ancient stone walls. On seldom-used trails and through the thyme-laden hills, you reach the 12th century Sénanque Abbey, completely intact, a jewel of Romanesque architecture. It sits in a hidden valley, framed by its lavender fields. You can visit the Abbey if you wish (there are regularly scheduled guided tours, lasting an hour, not included).
