Walking Holiday in Dentelles de Montmirail, Rhone Valley

Wine Tasting Tours & Gourmet Walking Holidays to France
about French Wine Gourmet Food, Wine & Hiking Holidays in France


The Dentelles (laces) of Montmirail are the first overhangs of the Alps in the Rhone Valley.  These hills of low altitude (from 500 to 735 meters) are covered with a Mediterranean vegetation, aromatic plants, Holm oaks and Alep pines and are dominated by a limestone crest finely carved by erosion, creating genuine laces of white stone which illuminate the Provence of the Popes. 

The first vineyards were planted by the Romans and produce vintage wines, which were already appreciated at the pontifical court.  On the way, you will cross small villages hanging from or joined to rock faces, favourite play-grounds of many amateur mountain-climbers. With a magical scenery, the perfumes of the Midi, the southern sun.
