The area

– explore the beautiful Provence

The wine

The southern Rhonedal is one of the largest wine regions in France. A lot of high quality wine is produced and Bastide le Luget is close to many of the famous wine regions.

The most famous is Chateauneuf du Pape, but also in the areas of Gigondas, Vauqueras, Rasteau and Cairanne you can find high quality wine. Try to explore the domains yourself, where you can get taste samples.

The local markets

Do not miss the typical food markets that have existed in Provence for 2000 years. Hver by, lille som stor, har marked en gang om ugen. Her finder man de lokale råvarer, men også varer fra andre dele af Frankrig er repræsenteret, som fx osten, der kommer fra de egne hvor de bliver produceret.

Antiques and flea markets

In addition, there are also a lot of flea and antique markets. The most famous is found in the town of Isle sur la Sourges, but also the Carpentras are worth visiting.

Roman Age and Medieval Villages

The area offers many opportunities for experiences. You will find the small picturesque medieval villages with lots of Provencal charm, but also the Roman Empire has left its mark with impressive buildings from that time.

Of larger cities it’s worth mentioning Avignon, Nimes, Orange, Arles and Uzes.
