More or less everywhere, near the campsite…

We are at the heart of a wine-making region which is full of domains whose cellars welcome visitors and host tastings.

The olive tree is the king of the Gard region. Le Moulin de Villevieille, for example, less than 30 minutes’ drive from the campsite, welcomes visitors and hosts tastings in its local produce shop.

Summer is also the time for festivals in the surrounding villages: the bull runs in the streets (abrivados…) are especially impressive!

Not to forget the many Provençal markets and antiques markets, where you can sample the best local produce and find something to remember your visit by.
