FORCALQUIER and MANOSQUE 

 


 

 

 

You will go to Forcalquier, capital of flavours and scents “par excellence”, whose history dates back to the 12th century.  A medieval city nestled between Luberon and Verdon with its fabulous Monday market, which is one of the most popular in Provence. The alleys are full of treasures; you will meet its inhabitants and visit workshops of artists where the craftsmen will open their doors to you.

We will have you explore the brand new Artemisia Museum nestled in the Cordeliers Convent (13th century), an original multi-sensory immersion dedicated to medicinal, perfume and aromatic plants.

A climb up to the citadel will offer you the most extraordinary panoramic view of the Montagne de Lure and the Luberon.

In the afternoon, stop at the site of Les Mourres to discover some  strange rock formations.

In Mane, we will have you meet a couple that produce the best organic syrups in the region.

Then you will discover the superb medieval village of Lurs, founded by Charlemagne in the 9th century. Stop at the L'Occitane factory shop to pick up some goodies on the way back.

 

This day focuses on three villages preserved in the heart of Haute Provence, including Forcalquier, capital of flavours and aromas. Unique landscapes and exclusive meetings of artists, craftsmen and producers.
