DISCOVER THE PROVENCE
At Le Couvent des Minimes Hotel & Spa
3 DAYS – 4 NIGHTS
Discover different places in the life of Cezanne in Aix en Provence: the house where he was born, the Chapellerie and his father’s bank, Bourbon College where he became friends with Emile Zola, the Jas de Bouffan, and the flat where he lived from 1899 to his death, in rue Boulegon, his last studio.
Valensole Plateau, Moustiers Sainte Marie and the Lake Sainte Croix: Leaving from Mane, you will drive through the Valensole plateau: the countryside all around is really beautiful, especially in the spring, when the almond trees are in bloom. In the summer aromas of lavender and Thyme waft through the air, substantiating the fact that Valensole is one of the most important producers of lavender in Provence. You will then discover Moustiers Sainte Marie, an amazing and exceptional site, set in a semi circle of rocky cliff perched at 630 m high. Located at the entrance of the Verdon Canyons, the Saint Croix Lake will amaze you by its breathtaking landscapes.
Southern Luberon: Luberon is the real Provence, full of character, a sweet Dolce Vita of a climate and pure clean air which just breathes the incredible contrasts between a rich, and varied natural environment. Starting with Apt, you will discover the unique pottery of this village, before reaching Roussillon, an original place to see its famous Ochre Quarries. You will then stop in the nice village of Gordes, for a splendid view and charming streets, and we will end our tour with the village of Bonnieux. It’s the central Luberon with an overview on the Northern Valley.
