The South of France, where the farmers grow olive trees, grape Martin de Crau offers hiking on the back roads
The town of Lacoste is an interesting hike. Narrow cobbled streets rimmed by beds of hollyhock and lavender lead past textured doorways, lace curtained windows, and through tiny portals, twisting down the hill to networks of trails beneath the town. In the valleys lavender fields, cherry orchards, and hike to the next village, perhaps Bonnieux.
Short term and long term vacation rentals in towns like Gordes and Goult make this part of Provence ideal for hiking. biking, and the culinary vacation.
The fruit and vegetable markets in the villages will provide a healthy snack of crushed olive tapinades spiced with basil and they will supply the fresh fruit, goat cheese, and a bottle of wine for the picnic on the way to the next village.
