A foodie walk in the land of the black truffle

A delicious smell of goat’s cheese perfumes the Pays d’Aix

Passing through the Pays d’Aix, head for the village of Rognes. This unusual village is renowned as the capital of the black truffle. Want to check it out? An 11-km tasting hike starts at the tourist office. An easy itinerary of 2½ hours invites you to discover the village, its little streets and its former castle or the pine forest and the surrounding vineyards. The goat farm of Le Brégalon is a must if you want to taste a delicious Provencal goat’s cheese! Stop off there and you’ll see…


Test the concept of the Rando Bistrot

Try it, you’ll just love it!

To visit Provence in a different way, the Rando Bistrot is the answer! The pleasure of sport, discovry and a good meal are there and will  give you energy. The foodie hike in the open air with a professional guide is completed by meeting a local farmer or craftsman. And to cap it all, Provencal flavours on your plate at the end of the outing. A real moment of sharing to discover the terroir, created by the Fédération Nationale des Bistrots de Pays. The outings change over the months and the seasons (programming under way).


Côtes de Provence foodie hikes

6 km of flavours to discover

And now for an idea of an unusual hike in Provence. The foodie itinerary gourmand hosted by the winegrowers of the golden triangle in Cuers, Pierrefeu and Puget-ville is different every year. Set off on a discovery of the wines of Côtes de Provence and local products such as honey, saffron and olive oil.

Over a distance of 6 km, you will eat one dish of your meal every kilometre, with the best vintage of the winegrowers. From the aperitif and the starter to the main dish, cheese and dessert, the gourmet terroir has a place of honour.

A delicious détour in the Pays de Nîmes

A walk in the garrigue to learn everything there is to know about the olive tree
