You can learn more about the famous Côtes du Rhône Wines. Stroll through the vines in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Châteauneuf-du-Pape is without a doubt the most prestigious of the Rhône Valley’s wine-making villages.

And of course, a wine-tasting…

You can visit the local markets and taste the delicious Provençal specialities for your daily picnics along the trails! We can inform you of the best places to get fresh goat’s cheese, charcuterie, quiche Lorraine, wine, olive oil and where to find the best baguettes.
