Welcome to Dentelles de Montmirail
Rising like a set of dragon's teeth from the flat, vineyard-cloaked plains about 20km north of Carpentras, this 8km-long rocky ridge is an imposing sight. Rather fancifully, the craggy spires are named after the dentelles (lace) they supposedly resemble. They're impressive seen from afar, but you can also hike in for a closer view thanks to a network of footpaths that wind amongst them – and, if you're so inclined, some famous rock-climbing routes.
Around the ridge are lots of small villages and many, many vineyards – but for safety's sake, maybe it's best to save the wine-tasting for a post-hike treat.
