The culture here is like the vines – a thousand years old! You’ll see signs of ancient history around every corner in the villages and valleys. The streets themselves stand witness to their medieval past with their red brick and half-timbered ‘colombage’ facades, while traditional white stone farmhouses punctuate the fields. But it’s the bastides and the hilltop villages that might surprise you the most. And if the architecture isn’t enough, there are also museums, gardens and libraries to enrich your holiday afternoons with culture.
