La Montagnette and its monuments

La Montagnette is a low-altitude mountain in Bouches-du-Rhône set against dry and rugged terrain. It is replete with architectural gems to visit. Start the morning with a visit to the cryptoporticus in Arles. In Tarascon, take a tour of Saint Michel du Frigolet Abbey and Château du Roi René. Next head to Le Garde-Manger for lunch before venturing off to see Daudet's mills. When you reach Fontvielle, you can't miss Château Montauban and the Roman aqueduct. Finish on a high note at Montmajour Abbey.

Wine country

The left and right banks of the Durance make the perfect complement to a weekend of luxury and art de vivre. Two well-known wine estates have created a universe in celebration of wine. At one you can expect land art and contemporary art; at the other, gardens inspired by Tuscany. In Puy-Ste-Réparade, Château La Coste is a winning combination of art and nature. In Pertuis, Château Val Joanis invites you to stroll around its vast grounds lush with fruit trees, olive groves and vines. A journey for all five senses!

In the Alpilles, Les Baux, Saint-Rémy and more

A day suffices to see the main sites in the Alpilles. Don't miss the ancient town of Glanum with its Roman ruins and Saint-Sixte Chapel. The Carrières de Lumières is worth a visit for its original and captivating audiovisual displays. Then step foot in the legendary Château des Baux and find a table at La Reine Jeanne to enjoy refined dishes made with fresh, local produce. Your tour ends at the oil mills, vital links in the production chain for AOP Baux-de-Provence olive oil.
