On this tour you will be able to explore several villages in the French countryside. There will also be a wine tasting where you will get to meet a family that produces wine and who will share their knowledge with you. There will be time along the way to explore the shops, cafes and galleries of the villages on your own as well.
After pickup at an agreed central location or your accommodation in Monaco, settle into your private, air-conditioned minivan with your guide. Then, set off on a tour of the countryside and mountains, taking in fruit orchards, flower fields, lush green hills and more.On arrival in St-Jeannet, enjoy a lovely walk through this hilltop medieval village, beautifully nestled at the foot of Baou of St-Jeannet, a flat-topped rock outcrop that's a hotspot for climbers and hikers.Stroll by and dip into St-Jeannet’s artisanal food, craft, and art shops and then continue to St-Jeannet winery. Here, take a walk in the vineyard and enjoy a presentation that showcases the estate’s production of white, rosé, and red wines. During the presentation, take the opportunity to taste some wines and swap notes on their flavors and characteristics.Next, pay a visit to the old town of Vence. This gem is surrounded by 13th-century ramparts, and combines impressive history with the charms of a sun-washed market town. Vence has preserved the memory of its Ligurian past, evident in the remains of a Roman triumphal arch, a 12th-century tower, the 17th-century Château de Villeneuve, and the many beautiful doors and architectural features on show in its narrow streets.Having explored here, continue to St-Paul-de-Vence. This medieval village offers stunning views, gorgeous old houses, and slender, winding streets full of boutiques and galleries. Enjoy free time to explore and shop on your own, perhaps visiting the old church in the heart of the village, or the St-Paul-de-Vence graveyard where artist Marc Chagall is buried.Afterward, relax on the drive back to Monaco where your tour ends at the original start point.
