Departure from Uzès (or at 10 km around), to the Dentelles du Montmirail area.

The tulips start to bloom in early April (depending on the year) and it is only for a short time. On 8 hectares, a Dutch company plants multicoloured bulbs to the delight of photographers and flower lovers.

I propose a colourful escapade between flowers and the wines of the Ventoux-Provence region. The Beaumes de Venise wine and its famous Muscat. The Gigondas cru, the Vacqueyras cru, the AOC Ventoux wines. An undeniable passion and dynamic actions that constantly showcase their rosé, red or white “dresses”.

Journey time: Uzès – Jonquières +/- 1 hour 30 minutes (depending on whether you stop in a village beforehand or not) Return journey idem 1 hour 30 minutes…
