The Enclave of the Popes fires the colors and the scents of Provence.
In its landscapes, vineyards, truffle oak groves and intense blue lavender fields in June and July, alternate.

The Enclave of the Popes is the black truffle country. The smell of the truffle spreads into the market of Richerenches (from November to March), the first truffle market in France.
We offer the discovery of the truffle, during a weekend. For further information, click here : "Le château".

The wines of the Enclave are among the most famous of the Côtes du Rhône wines. You can taste and buy these wines in many cellars.
