Vineyard escapes/escapes near vineyards!

Hi there

My wife and I are going to be travelling from Nice to Toulouse in September, and would like to stay somewhere for a few nights where we can just unwind away from the masses, yet isn't too much of a diversion off the route (perhaps near Aix-en-Provence)?

Ideally we'd like to find somewhere scenic and quite rural where we can hire a couple of bikes and visit a vineyard or two. Having never been to the South of France I was recommended Seguret, and found some lovely places to stay there, but it's further inland than we had anticipated, hence my call for help!

Any suggestions would be most welcome - we're not tied to Aix-en-Provence; it's just roughly halfway between Nice and Toulouse!

Thank you! :o)

Seguret is a terrific destination and perfectly suited to visit the great vineyards of the Southern Rhone. La Bastide Bleue is a lovely place to stay there.

Nr Aix, Lourmarin Cadenet or Lauris might be some of the best places to consider.

Seguret is in the Gigondas wine country with I find more interesting as a wine. There is nearby a hotel/winery right in the vineyard.

From Seguret, you can take back the motorway in Orange and drive to Toulouse via Nimes. That wont add much time to your journey.

Hope this will help.

Thank you very much for your suggestions! That's really helpful...I'll have a look into those places. Whilst we love wine, we're not too fussed about which one we target as it's just our first dabble into the area!

If you really would like a couple of days' wine getaway, I cannot say enough good things about the Auberge du Vin in between Mazan and Carpentras: perfect hosts, lots to learn about Cotes du Rhone wines (including Gigondas) and an easy biking distance to scenic villages and vineyards.
