Gigondas and the Dentelles de Montmirail

hiking in provence in wine vineyards

  • Walk 4h (7.4 miles)
  • 9am : meet your guide in Gigondas

  • Meet in the charming village square of Gigondas, world-renowned for its red wines. We’ll explore the picturesque village streets before heading into the hills, laden with gnarled vines set on vertiginous terraces. 

    Set behind the village are the Dentelles de Montmirail: a mountain range composed of three sets of limestone cliffs that jut vertically from the chalky soils, creating a veritable playground of some of the best walking and hiking in Provence. Your expert guide will lead you as you as you approach the foot of one of the imposing cliffs. A hidden and little-known path takes you up through the brush and evergreen oak and to the very ridge of one of the cliffs, from where the entire Rhône valley and its sea of vines is sprawled in front of you, with the Cévennes mountains as a backdrop: one of the best vantage points in all of Provence.

    After a leisurely Provençal picnic we return to Gigondas via the farming tracks that run in between the picturesque rows of Grenache and Syrah grapes. We’ll then enjoy a wine-tasting in the center of Gigondas (depending on opening days) before parting ways with your guide.
