The most lovely tour in Provence. You will learn why Grass became the world capital of perfumery, and what the most famous perfumes were created in its laboratories; who among the crowned person loved riding on a small carriage on the picturesque roads of the wolf's gorge, stoped to walk in the gardens of Gourdon Castle designed by the landscape architect of the King of Sun; which flower is a part of the perfume Chanel growning on the slopes of the cozy town of Tourette Sur Loup; what kinds of drinks the Provençal drink more than water; who of the artists lived a long life in St. Paul, making its famous throughout the planet.
It’s French Riviera’s hothouse climate, nurturing nearly year-round displays of tropical-hue flowers, that encourages Grasse’s perfume industry. The heady scent of roses, lavender, orange blossoms, and lavender wraps around you like silk in gardens, and since time immemorial people have tried to capture that seductive fragrance in a flask. With a free guided tour of Fragonard Perfume Factory located in Grasse, you will discover how French perfumes and other beauty products are created.
Rising above the Mediterranean coast, the very charming hilltop village of Gourdon ranks as one of the most beautiful sites in Provence. The enchanting passages are lined with workshops and galleries. The showcases attract by a stunning collection of goods in bright colors.
Violet is native to Tourettes and grows so well because the soil is naturally perfect for it. Off all the marvelous villages, this tiny town has more than a whiff of fairy tale in the lording over a patchwork landscape as finely drawn as a magical illumination, luminous as an illustration in a children’s book.
The medieval village can be seen from afar standing out against the horizon. Art dominates in the myriad traps that take your eyes off the beauty of St-Paul’s old houses, its light, and its honey-color stone walls soothingly cool on a hot Provencal afternoon.
