Itinéraire 16 : De Noves à Rousset, une traversée buissonnière du département par la D7n

Noves, Rousset, Aix en Provence, Saint Cannat, Sénas, Saint Andiol, Lambesc, Mallemort, Châteauneuf le Rouge, Orgon, Plan d'Orgon - Sightseeing route - Toute l'année

It is by whistling the famous words of Charles Trenet is this spree! The most famous road of France crosses the Department on 86 km. And as in old movies, it is often lined with plane trees, fields and orchards. On the edge of the Vaucluse, from the edge of the Durance, Noves and bridges, it is gone! Very quickly, the car sneaks between Luberon and Alpilles, to Plan of Orgon, then the route crosses Lambesc, mouthful of monuments and oratories, Saint-Cannat and his sarcophagus stoup, Waldo and its vintage service station, now classified. It bypasses or visit Aix before spinning along the Arc in green hills. Then the gaze is lost in rock bars and numbers of vines. In the vicinity of Sainte-Victoire, villages again, follow up to Trets, outpost of the Var, where the reverse gear is engaged...The national 7, which originally connected Paris to the Côte d'Azur through the Bouches from West to East over a distance of 86 km under the name of RD7n.
