Co budeš dělat

After the pickup at the meeting point in Avignon, start your journey in colorful Provence by a visit of the beautiful village of FONTAINE DE VAUCLUSE, by the river Sorgue : Walk up to its spring, the biggest of Europe, down the cliff.

Then head-off to ABBAYE DE SENANQUE for a photo stop at this majestic XIIth Century Abbey surrounded by lavender fields.

The next stop is GORDES, after the photo-stop at the 'belvedere', visit this famous hilltop village made of local dry stone.

For the lunch time, we stop at ROUSSILLON. The enchantment of this Provencal village weaves its spell throughout the year, as the shades of ochre of the houses and the ground vary with the sunlight.

It is time to visit the LAVENDER FIELDS : Gaze in the lavender fields, fill your body of fresh lavender fragrance, take some pictures and have a look at a distillation operation during harvest.

Finally, we will relax in SAULT, in the middle of a bucolic landscape, isolated from civilisation, this quiet and wild village will slow down rush and cool the heat of the day.

The experience has been reviewed and improved in a way to answer to new safety rules, allowing us to host you again safely and comfortably.

Hello I am Gilles Balazut, born in Orange, within the Cotes du Rhone area, in a Châteauneuf Du Pape wine growers family. I had very early, in the 80s, my first oenotouristic experiences, when I was helping my parents in the cellar to take care foreign customers.

Suffering of asthma, I spent my childhood time between my parents and my cousins's home, lavender farmers in Sault. The fine lavender products of the area have played a central role in my complete healing.

Working for over 10 years as a driver/guide in Avignon, I opened my company in 2017 and designed my day tours according to my own experience.

I will have the pleasure to reveal you all secrets of Fine Lavender, as well as of the wines of the Cotes du Rhone area, passing by the marvels in Provence and treasures of Luberon.

See you soon !

Was a wonderful way to see Provence and places that are hard to get to without a car! We loved the girls who went along with us and it was so fun seeing so much in a day!

The tour of the small villages around Avignon was delightful! It was fun to be able to be on a tour, have a guide who knew a lot about the areas we visited, but then also have some free time to roam about the towns we visited on our own. Would recommend this trip, and would highly recommend Chez David in Roussillon! Visiting the lavender fields, even though it is near the end of the season, was still really cool, and really awesome to see the distillery process!

Gilles was a great guide! Accommodating, friendly, and he shared some history and info about the places we visited. We were also given enough time to explore and enjoy the spots on our own. We were lucky enough to still see lavender fields despite coming late in the season and we even got to see the distillation process! Highly recommend this experience!

Giles’ trip was awesome.. it was a small group of just 5 folks and he gives enough time for everything.. frankly, I had very low expectations for the trip.. it was my wife who was excited about the lavenders.. but it was way beyond just lavenders.. one of the stops had some construction work going.. so Giles gave us an option to continue and waste time or skip it.. we skipped it.. I thought that would mean the trip would end early.. but Giles went above and beyond and took us to another destination not even on the itinerary to make th trip extra special .. Giles was super awesome and it’s very clear he loves his work and has super work ethic.. he has set a high benchmark for other tours to come

This was a great tour. We saw some really beautiful places and Gilles gave us plenty of time to enjoy them. Watching the distillation of the lavender was very interesting and fun.
