  • From the heart of the Provence, the charming village of Séguret, classified among the "most beautiful villages in France", you ride through olive groves, vineyards and lavender fields to discover the emblematic villages of this little gem in Provence such as Sablet, Gigondas or Vaison-la-Romaine.
    In Vaison-le-Romaine you will discover the very beautiful Gallo-Roman remains, which testify to the power of the region during Antiquity. You taste the powerful wines of Gigondas and Sablet at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail, these jagged rock formations that overlook the region.

    A perfect escape between nature and culture at the heart of Provence!
