Journey through Southern France with the WITF Travel Club in September 2020
Ignite your senses by discovering the rich flavors, colors, and cultures of Southern France. Journey through some of the world’s most wonderful wine regions and explore medieval villages seemingly untouched by time.
Feel like a royal in the Dordogne Valley. Tucked away amid vineyards, sleepy towns and groves of chestnut trees, lies a legendary estate fit for royalty. Dubbed the “Petit Versailles,” Chateau Des Vigiers is a sprawling 16th century estate that seamlessly pays homage to the past while providing luxurious contemporary comforts during your overnight stays on site.
Delight in the “Thrill of the Hunt” in Gordes. Led by a local chef and his keen-sensed dogs, this culinary adventure takes you through the countryside on an exciting hunt for black truffles where they naturally grow. Apres hunt, relish local farm-fresh treats in creative presentations.
Saint-Emilion (UNESCO World Heritage Site)
Discover the charming village of Saint-Emilion. Surrounded by medieval towers and landscapes of world-renowned vineyards, you attain a truer taste of local life. Take time to walk the cobblestone streets, peek into centuries-old churches, and taste the wine that shares the town’s name.
Bordeaux Winery Tour
Drink in the Beauty of Bordeaux. Savor a locally sourced meal paired with the region’s famed wines. Meander the grounds of a winery in Medoc and absorb the atmosphere of the vineyards, smell the grapes, and taste the locally grown wine.
Avignon & Carcassonne (UNESCO World Heritage Sites)
Peek into Provencal Life. An insider’s look at the village of Avignon is afforded with a local expert guide; the Palace of the Popes is just one of the impressive visits. Learn more about the region’s famed lavender at the Musee de la Lavande. Step back in time when exploring the medieval town of Carcassonne, a UNESCO World Heritage site replete with drawbridges, towers and cobbled alleyways awaiting your visit.
