St. Paul en Foret - Excursions and Places of interest

Vineyards

You cannot leave Provence without visiting one of the wyneries; Château Vignelaure, Château La Coste, Château Léoube, Mas de Cadenet, Clos Mireille-Domaines Ott, Château de Chausse... There is sonething for every taste!

Distillery / Brewery

Apart from gazing at lavender fields, you can also visit lavender farms and distilleries, attend lavender festivals at Sault and Valreas, and buy lavender products like oil, essences, perfumes, soap, etc. In Coustellet there is even a Lavender Museum exploring the history of the cultivation of lavender in Provence.

Natural areas of beauty

Les Gorges de Regalon : just beside Merindol, take a wonderful walk through a narrow canyon; the scenery, terrain, and views all make this hike extremely interesting - actually spectacular.
Head off to the mountain gorges of the Siagne and the Siagnole – either side of the 830m high village of Mons, where you can splash around in 'refreshing' streams or dive into rock-pools and plunge in the waterfalls.
Les gorges du Verdon offer something for everyone at about 90 minutes drive. Hire a pedalo (with water slide) at Lac St.Croix and meander down the river looking up several hundred metres of rock wall. For the walker, take the six hour Sentier Martel hike along the Verdon.

Regions to visit

A tour around the Mont Ventoux gives you a different perspective of Provence, from the lavender country round Sault to the west, to the wine country and Roman treasures of Vaison la Romaine in the East, and the beautiful and little-known villages scattered in between

Other excursions

Greaty number of activities and beautiful spots; you can canoe on the River Agens,or take a trip through the Verdon on an electric boat, cycle on the country roads of Provence or take a horserback ride through the hills...
The nearest beaches are about 45 minutes away, but a walk down La Croisette in Cannes, lunch by the sea and a quick dip should not be missed. For a more intimate experience, find a cove in the red rocks Esterel or visit Theoule.

Castles

Every village in Provence was built around a castle or some form of defensive structure, and many of them remain, in differing states, from a few walls to entirely preserved buildings. Some are privately owned and not open to the public, but some can be visited.

Other Places of interest

typical markets, pleasant restaurants (to suit all budgets) and a sensible collection of day-to-day and tourist shops.
