Departing Toulon, drive to Le Castellet, a typical Provencal hilltop village, perched on a wooded hill above the vineyards. This remarkable stronghold was formerly owned by the Lords of les Baux, and has well preserved ramparts, a carefully restored 12th century church, and a castle dating back to the 11th century.

Entering by two fortified gates, you’ll walk around the narrow streets and up to the Castle, now home to the Town Hall. Discover the St Sauveur Church before joining the ‘Trou de Madame’ from where you will enjoy an attractive view inland towards Ste Baume and the Paul Ricard Race Circuit. Enjoy some time at leisure to explore the arts and craft workshops.

Continue onto Domaine de Souviou, a very beautiful Provençal bastide, with its adjacent chapel surrounded by 32 hectares of vineyards producing fine wine and 2500 olive trees producing a rare olive oil.

Taste several wines including AOC Bandol Rosé Red and AOC Côtes de Provence Red, Rosé & White accompanied by olive oil and fougasse (Provençal breads).
