Meet up with your guide and set off on a guided tour of Les Baux de Provence, one of the most beautiful villages in France. Located at the heart of the Alpilles on a rocky plateau, the village overlooks breath-taking landscapes over Arles, the Camargue and the Alpilles. This gorgeous and impressive stone fortress is definitely a must-see.
Tourism developed in this region after World War II with the arrival of Raymond Thuillier who contributed to the worldwide popularity of the Baux with the opening of the gastronomic restaurant "Oustau de Baumanière” where celebrities and political figures would often dine. In 1966, André Malraux issued a decree putting the village under protection of the Ministry of Culture and the Environment. A prosperous era then started for the Baux which had been left aside since the Revolution. The restoration of the city led to its being listed as one of the Most Beautiful Villages in France in 1998. Return on board by coach.
