Enjoy breathtaking view of the dried-stone hilltop village Gordes
Discover Roussillon and its coloful ochre cliffs
What to expect
Departure from Avignon to Roussillon built at the top of an ochre cliff. You'll see an harmonious combination of man and nature, of ochre and stone with all these ochre-washed façades. If you take the tour on Thursday, you'll have the chance to go to the market in Roussillon.
You'll then head to Gordes, a village erected on the top of a cliff. Its fortified castle and church dominate the typical houses of the village which were built with stones from the rock on which they are fitting. If you take the tour on Tuesday, you'll have the chance to go to the market in Gordes.
The tour continues to Fontaine de Vaucluse where you'll walk up to the cave from which the River Sorgues emerges. This impressive resurgence spring hasn't revealed its secrets yet and many speleologists have searched in vain the exact depth of the well.
