On this special journey into the Alpes de Haute-Provence region you will spend the day exploring sleepy medieval villages nestled in the mountains.
Stop in Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, located along cliffside platform terraces. This town has been the center of the pottery trade for centuries, especially the tin-glazed faience variety.
In Manosque, the largest town and commune in the region, you will visit the historical factory of the L'Occitane de Provence cosmetics brand and learn about their different production processes.
Continue your exploration to Valensole for breathtaking views and the aromas of famous lavender fields. Walk along the main street with its boutique shops and cafes and observe the restored houses decorated with wrought-iron balconies. Near the town's fountain you will find a simple sundial that is more than a century old.
Conclude your approximate 9-hour tour at Lake of Saint Croix, a large man-made lake that contains the remnants of the original Sainte-Croix-de-Verdon village below the surface and offers stunning views over the Verdon canyon.
