This is the perfect trip to discover the unique lifestyle and the authentic flavors of Provence. The amateur wine connoisseurs will enjoy tours and tastings at Chateau Saint Martin and Château Font du Broc. Visit the medieval village of Les Arcs and the beautiful Agens Chapelle Sainte Roseline.
Far from the bustle of the city discover the art of living in Provence, and experience the best wine country that Provence has to offer:
Château Saint Martin: The fame of the CHATEAU DE SAINT MARTIN, that belongs to the elite, has been established for many years. The region's fame is also due to a family tradition carried out since the 18th century. Visitors will be treated to a guided visit and wine tasting. The domain combines the production of a range of refined wines with deep personalities to the art of welcoming the visitors thanks to its exceptional architectural and cultural heritage.
Les Arcs sur Argens: The old town Village Medieval of Les Arcs is very interesting and very picturesque, and the village is worth a visit just for that. The narrow streets are somewhat steep and with steps, so good walking legs are needed. Here, you will have free time for lunch (payable direct).
Château Font du Broc: The mood is set as soon as you step through the door of Château Font du Broc. Visitors will get to experience a guided tour of this prestigious domain and participate in a wine tasting. Explore their cellar, a superb underground cathedral.
Sainte Roseline Chapel: This place of workshop is a real work of art, but above all it is a renowned pilgrimage site. Since 1329 it has harboured the venerated Saint’s body, which is dressed in priestly clothes and laid to rest in a glass case. Many great artists have celebrated the life of Saint Roseline: Marc CHAGALL, with an remarkable mosaic representing the Angel’s Meal. Jean BAZAINE and Raoul UBAC, with their flamboyant stained glass. Diego GIACOMETTI, with a relief sculpture and a bronze lectern.
