Provence France

Embark on a walking holiday through Provence’s famous wine growing region, starting in Avignon, a World Unesco Heritage site and finishing in the medieval town of Vaison la Romaine.

Chateauneuf du Pape is southern France’s most prestigious wine village: grapes have been grown here for over 850 years. The Popes brought the vines to this area in the 14th century and thanks to the amazing growing conditions many world renown and prized vintages have been produced here. The best way to discover these vineyards is by foot, strolling between the vines from one estate to the next. You’ll have lots of wine-tasting opportunities.

You will also pass through Séguret and Gigondas, two medieval villages perched high over the Rhône valley, framed by never-ending seas of reputed vineyards. From Gigondas you approach the Dentelles de Montmirail, a set of jagged limestone teeth that soar high and defiantly over the Rhône Valley. You then walk towards the foot of Mont Ventoux – through orchards and vineyards, with extraordinary panoramas and a large diversity of landscapes. At 1912m in altitude, Mont Ventoux is Provence’s highest peak. Its remarkable silhouette paint the backdrop of this scenic exploration of Provence.

HIGHLIGHTS
  • Wander through the famed vineyards of Chateauneuf du Pape
  • Take in views of Mont Ventoux, the Giant of Provence
  • Walk in the foothills of the Dentelles de Montmirail
  • Indulge in classic French cuisine; baguettes, goats cheese, ratatouille and Côtes du Rhône wines
