Drives and Walks

Vacqueyras to Vaison la Romaine

A drive through the vineyards, along the valley by the Dentelles de Montmirail.
From Vacqueyras, take the D8 north, then right on the D7 to Gigondas. Follow the winding road through Gigondas to Sablet then the D23 to Séguret, both excellent wine producing villages, and both with very attractive Provencal houses. From Séguret follow the D88, then the wider D977 to Vaison la Romaine, another very attractive town with Roman remains, on the banks of the river Ouvèze. These small roads offer numerous places for a picnic stop in a countryside with vineyards and fruit orchards.
