Guida/autista preparato e simpatico. Ci ha mostrato degli scorci che solo una guida locale poteva conoscere. Giornata molto piacevole immersi nei paesaggi della provenza. Molto suggestivi i campi di lavanda in fiore e interessante la visita nell'azienda produttrice di lavanda. Bellissimo il paese rosso di rousillon (consigliatissima la passeggiata immersi nell'ocra), piacevole la frescura e i colori di fontaine de vaucluse, incantevole il belvedere a gordes. Escursione consigliata.
