Activities & Excursions

We live on the property and will personally welcome you and make sure that your holiday goes without a hitch. 
We will be at your disposal to advise you on the best neighbouring sites to visit and suggest you short trips so that you may share our passion for the region, its history, its wonderful wines and gastronomy..
Here are some recommendations for activities and excursions around us:
  • BARBECUE/GRILL:  around the pool you will be able to sample the famous ""cigalines"" and other local meats, accompanied by Mediterranean salads and local wines. 
  •  THE VINEYARDS OF OUR REGION:  we suggest to visit the vineyards of the region – which are unknown too often and we will give you our recommendations and tips.   You will discover and sample surprising and affordable wines, and meet people who are passionate about their profession
  • LES BAUX DE PROVENCE AND ITS ILLUMINATED QUARRIES:  without question and above all, the visit to the quarries offers entertainment which is dramatic and unique world-wide, with ""son et lumière"" (sound and lights) projections of pictures and paintings on the walls, ceilings and the ground. We also recommend to visit the village of BAUX and its medieval castle, as well as the typical village of SAINT REMI DE PROVENCE.
  • AN OUTING IN THE CAMARGUE:  situated along the Mediterranean, the Camargue has been built up by the delta of the river Rhone and offers shelter to multiple species of animals (including the famous race of white Camargue horses) and plants.   The area is classified as a biospheric reserve and a regional natural park.   During the day we will visit several towns and villages in the Camargue:  AIGUES-MORTES (a medieval town classified as a Unesco World Heritage), SAINTE MARIE DE LA MER, LA GRANDE MOTTE, as well as the famous SALIN DU MIDI salt beds.
  • LA  ROUTE  ROMAINE: Nîmes, a town founded by the Romans, is the home of numerous remains of the Roman culture, such as the spectacular arena – which is still used for frequent concerts and bull fights.  We also recommend a visit to the Musée de la Romanité situated in front of the arena. Then you can go to the site of PONT DU GARD which is at a 30 mns drive from Nîmes.
  • ARLES:BETWEEN  THE  CAMARGUE  AND  PROVENCE:  renowned for having inspired the paintings of Van Gogh, who influenced the contemporary art exposed at the Vincent Van Gogh Foundation.   Former provincial capital of ancient Rome, Arles is also renowned for its numerous ruins dating from this era, especially the Amphi-theatre of Arles, which nowadays hosts theatre plays, concerts and bull fights.
  • LES  CEVENNES,  ANDUZE  AND  ITS  BAMBOO  PARK:  This wonderful Bamboo Park transports us in a flash to an exotic décor stretching over 12 hectares.   Even though the bamboo, itself, is the highlight here, there are other remarkable trees to admire for their size and their age – such as sequoias, gingkosbilobas, cryptomerias, tulipiers, magnolias and camellias.  Then we suggest to take the Steam train to the village of SAINT JEAN DU GARD, at last a visit to the village of VEZENOBRES on your way back to CASA DINA is highly recommended.
  • SAINT  GUILHEM  LE  DESERT / LE  PONT  DU  DIABLE  and THE LAKE OF SALAGOU :  nestled between breathtaking cliffs, and winding along meandering roads, Saint Guilhem le Desert developed around the Abbey of Gellone, at just a handful of kilometres away from the Pont du Diable – both of them being listed among the world patrimony of UNESCO as part of the Chemins de Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle.
  • The hills of Saint Guilhem as well as those of Le Pont Du Diable are much appreciated by walkers, and allow magnificent panoramas – as well as many rare botanical specimens – to be discovered.   Saint Guilhem is one of the most beautiful villages of France.
  • A WALK THROUGH AVIGNON: A walk through Avignon and discovery of the ""Cité des Papes"", which is the home of the biggest theatre festival in the world.
  • CARCASSONNE:   A VOYAGE  IN  TIME:  This fortified medieval city – whose origins go back to the Gallo-Roman times -- owes its fame to its double fortifications, stretching for almost 3 km in length and including fifty-two turrets, which dominate the valley of the River Aude in a most spectacular fashion.   There is also a castle (Le Chateau Comtal) and a basilica (La Basilique Saint-Nazaire) in the city.   The City of Carcassonne has been classified as a UNESCO world patrimony site since 1997.
  • THE OIL MILL OF SOMMIERES/THE SOURCE OF THE MINERAL SPRING OF PERRIER/THE HONEY PRODUCER OF CLAIRAN:  sampling of different oils, a visit to the source of the Mineral Spring of Perrier, and a visit to the honey producer where you can sample an amazing quantity of organic honeys and their derivatives.
