Discover some jewels of the Cistercian Order on a full-day tour through the scenic countryside of Luberon. Marvel at the magnificent Silvacane Abbey and charming Sénanque Abbey, as well as Provençal villages such as Lourmarin, Gordes, L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, and Fontaine-de-Vaucluse.
Admire Silvacane Abbey, a former Cistercian monastery founded in the 12th century. See its remarkable church, pass by the monk's dormitory, and take in the peaceful atmosphere of the cloister. Try to imagine the lives of the abbey's medieval monks while you visit the chapter house, the room where they copied manuscripts, and the refectory.
Next, reach the charming village of Lourmarin, nestled amid vineyards, olive groves, and almond trees. Visit the town's Renaissance-era castle and make your way to the Sénanque Abbey, a 12th-century friary located in the middle of a picturesque lavender field.
Continue to one of France's most charming villages, through rolling hills covered with olive groves. Standing on the edge of the plateau of Vaucluse, Gordes hosts a medieval castle overlooking the town and tiny streets bordered with white and gray houses built of stone.
Visit the enchanting village of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue and walk along the canals that run between the narrow streets. Your last stop is in the charming village of Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, where you can see France's biggest natural spring at the bottom of a steep 755-foot (230-m) cliff, itself ranked as the 5th-largest in the world.
