Description

Embark on a day trip with stops in a variety of fascinating places, from the factory of natural skincare brand L'Occitane to the town of Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. Striking views of the Gorges du Verdon and the peaceful lakeside of Sainte Croix complete your excursion through beautiful southern France.

Meet your driver in central Aix-en-Provence before hopping on board a comfortable minivan and heading to your first stop, the L'Occitane factory. The company is famous for natural beauty products that are available throughout the world, and here you get to see how they infuse their cosmetics with locally grown plants and flowers.

Reach your next destination by crossing the Valensole Plateau, blanketed with sprawling fields of purple lavender during the summer months. Find yourself in the quaint town of Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, famous for its earthenware workshops. Enjoy some leisure time here to browse in the shops and relish some lunch, before jumping aboard the coach to your next stop.

Arrive at the Gorges du Verdon and marvel at awe-inspiring views of the rugged landscape and the turquoise waters of Sainte-Croix Lake. Stroll along the lakeside, appreciating the serene and peaceful atmosphere and taking in the stunning natural beauty of your surroundings.

On your return trip to Aix-en-Provence, stop in the picturesque village of Sainte-Croix-du-Verdon, where you can take in the town's old-world charm and admire even more memorable scenery before the conclusion of your tour.

I booked the Gorges du Verdon tripfor 28 March and expected to spend some time at the gorges. Instead we spent over 2 hours at the occitaine factory at the little museum on a tour of the factory and at the retail shop. After we drove to mousetiers and stopped at a very nice but expensive restaurant. After lunch we walked around the town for an hour. We finally left mousetiers at 3:15 and arrived at the beginning of the gorge. We stopped for a photo and much to my surprise the driver turned around We thought we were going to another part of the gorge but we drove down to the lake for a short stop for a bathroom break. And then we drove back to Aix. A total of 5 minutes at the gorge for $272 seems exorbitant to me. The trip was advertised as a trip to the gorge with stops at Moustiers-Ste and occitaine. I think the trip is a rip-off and would not recommend it to anyone.
