Description

Starf off this magical day at the world famous village of Chateauneuf du Pape and the medieval abbey of Senanque. Located about 30 minutes from Avignon, the Chateauneuf du Pape is known for its narrow streets punctuated by beautiful fountains, a castle from the 14th century, medieval chapels and, of course, one of the best wines of France: Châteuneuf du Pape.

Vine cultivation, already known to the Gauls, was widely developed by the Romans. Monks were the first to clear the land and cultivate these vineyards and Bishops were instrumental in extending vine cultivation. Here you will have a 3 glass wine tasting session at a selected winery.

Then it is off to lunch, where you have reservations at a well known gourmet restaurant with a unique panoramic view over the Rhône river valley.

After lunch you will go on a pleasant drive across lavender covered valleys and fields that will lead you to one of the jewels of Provence: the medieval abbey of Senanque.

Sitting at the bottom of a deep valley, Notre-Dame de Senanque remains one of the purest examples of early Cistercian architecture still alive and still standing. The entire 12th century building is open for visits: the abbey church, the cloister, the dormitory, the chapter house and cale factory. Since returning in 1988, a community of Cistercian monks have lived and prayed here.

End your day by driving back to Avignon through fruit orchards and poppy fields.
