“A medieval escape to the kingdom of truffles and black olives”
The Château de Rochegude, a 12th century fortress, is located in the heart of the Provencal Drôme region and majestically overlooks the Côtes-du-Rhône vineyards, with vistas of the Mont Ventoux. The cellars of the château boast some of the best wines and are a starting point for wine tastings in the surrounding vineyards. Other activites on offer include a visit to the Ardèche caves or to some of the many Roman remains, such as the Pont du Gard and the antique theatre in Orange. On your return to the château enjoy a snack of warm local truffles, thinly-sliced, seasoned and lightly steamed with butter, accompanied by eggs and slices of toast.
