Provence is a region known for lavender, an aromatic plant that is traditionally grown in much of the territory.
The Region is one of the great destinations of international tourism, thanks to the mildness of its climate, the beauty of its coastline, the charm of its cities of art and the high level of its cuisine. We will visit the area of Valesole, the most famous for its wonderful, colorful and fragrant lavender plantations, then we will pass through medieval villages built and set in the mountains of the area. We will trek along the Verdon Gorges with panoramic itineraries from above, but also along its wonderful lake and canyon that is successful all over the world. Another suggestive and unique place in the world that we will visit is the town of Roussilion with its colorful valleys "les ocres de roussillon" a natural canyon of red earth that will give our eyes unique landscapes of their kind. We will finish our trek by passing through the coastal road and in the Marseille area we will go to the famous natural reserve of the Calanque d'En-Vau where we will enjoy a wonderful swim in crystal clear waters.
