About this activity

You will discover first the village of Les Baux de Provence, with an informal visit to the Castle after a short walking tour of the small village with time for morning coffee/refreshments at leisure. Les Baux de Provence clings precariously to an ancient rocky cliff. It is a fortified hilltop village, one of the most visited in Provence and you will easily understand its popularity, with its narrow cobbled streets, ancient houses run up to a ruined castle. Where the Baux family ruled from the 9th century 'til 1426 when it was integrated into Provence, subsequently became part of France in 1481. Later the people revolted against integration and Louis XI responded by dismantling the château. You will visit the village and the castle.
