Discovering the vineyards: Elixir of provence

discovering-the-vineyards-elixir-of-provence

A journey of learning and appreciation through the great wine estates of Les Arcs. Over centuries of patient and passionate study, winemakers have striven to unlock the mysterious alchemy of the perfect wine. The type of soil, the variety of the vines, and the micro-climate of the land have been studied and are chosen for their respective qualities.

This tour will be a high point in your stay; an initiation into the elixir that is our Cote de Provence wine.
Now, we invite you to enter the heart of our local culture; the Provencal market. Banish your watches! Here, time cannot be measured in seconds, minutes or hours.

The Provencal philosophy can best be experienced at the local market which is held every
Thursday morning at Place du General de Gaulle. The abundant produce and colorful flowers delight the senses. The stalls, arranged under the shade of century-old plane trees, offer a plentiful bounty of nature’s best fruits and vegetables, meats, fresh cheeses, and spices.

As the soul of the village, the Provencal market is THE local meeting place where tourists are a welcome addition to the hectic local hubbub. It is a place for shopping, of course, but also for keeping abreast of the latest village news, swapping stories, and stopping off for a cold drink or a strong shot of coffee.

There is no such thing as a quick run to the market! Ten minutes planned stretches into several pleasurable social hours with friends and neighbors. These may be just some of the reasons by the south of France is known for a slower, warmer, and friendlier pace of life.
