Let’s start the day tour in Provence in the heart of the Alpilles by visiting one
of the “most beautiful villages in France”, Les Baux de Provence. This unique village,
perched on a rocky outcrop 247 m high, will amaze you with its paved streets, its
renaissance houses… The Baux Château, located at the top of the village, offers spectacular
views of the vines, the olive groves, the Camargue…as far as the sea.
After lunch in Les Baux de Provence, let’s take the little picturesque roads down,
through the Provençal village of Maussane les Alpilles, to see the little Provence
of Paradou. It houses one of the biggest crib scenes in the world which includes
more than 400 Provençal crib figures in a miniature Provençal village.
Next let’s move on to Fontvieille,a very typical charming village, in the footsteps
of Alphonse Daudet with the discovery of his Mill, built in 1814. This village will
also surprise you with the ruins of the Roman aqueduct under which we’ll pass to
continue our Provence tour.
We’re going to take one of the most beautiful roads in the area, running alongside
the mountain range of the Alpilles and crossing olive groves so that you can see
wonderful scenery which will leave an unforgettable memory.
