Provence: Walking and Wine

  • Walks through the world-famous vineyards of Chateauneuf du Pape
  • Unforgettable and classic views of Mont Ventoux
  • Spectacular scenery in the foothills of the Dentelles de Montmirail
  • Picnic lunches amidst stunning vineyards feasting on fresh baguettes and local cheese
  • Sharing a bottle of enticing rich and fruity Côtes du Rhône in a hill-top village restaurant
Walk through Provence's famous wine-growing region, starting in Avignon, a World UNESCO Heritage city and ending in the medieval town of Vaison La Romaine, exploring both famous vineyards and quaint villages on the way. Chateauneuf du Pape, one of the highlights of the tour, is one of France’s most prestigious wine villages, with a viticultural history spanning 850 years. Introduced to this region by the Popes in the 14th century during their residence in Avignon, the grapes have thrived. Immerse yourself in the vineyards, unveiling the secrets of these ancient vines. Head into the foothills of the Dentelles de Montmirail in the Vaucluse, taking in views of Mont Ventoux and passing through splendid medieval hilltop villages, such as Seguret and Gigondas. End your days with a leisurely French meal, savouring regional specialities such as ratatouille, soupe au pistou, and tapenade—all of which, naturally, must be accompanied by a glass of exquisite local wine!
