Provence, The Vaucluse
We have the perfect recipe for your holiday
This very special part in the north of Provence, the Vaucluse is rich with truffles, lavender, honey and wonderful wines. Even the food tastes and smells of sunshine!
We'll picnic in some of the most beautiful settings you can imagine, play pétanque, glass of pastis in hand, in the shadow of a 14th century church. We'll learn about olive oil and nougat making, and shop for pique-nique fare in the colourful Vaucluse markets.
Wander through medieval villages classified among the most beautiful in France, explore Roman ruins including the famed theatre of Orange and the Pont-du-Gard, and follow trails to visit some of the stoniest vineyards in the world - Gigondas, Beaumes-de-Venise, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Côtes-du-Rhône - we'll try them all!
Our routes are cunningly planned to reduce hill climbing to a minimum, unless, of course, you want the challenge!
We'll even picnic high on Mont Ventoux, of Tour de France fame, but never fear, the majority of us will ascend by bus before enjoying the descent.
