Vineyard walks in the local area
Oppède le Vieux
The vineyard walk in Oppède crosses a landscape shaped by agriculture. Olive and cherry trees punctuate the vineyard landscape, while terraces and groves shape the panorama. Five information posts explain various aspects of the “vine and wine” world.
Depart: Car park, Oppède le Vieux
Duration of walk: 1.30 hours
Why not round off your walk with a wine tasting!
The walk leaves from the car park at the Cave Coopérative. Walkers and hikers, with the help of a leaflet, will explore Cucuron’s viticultural past. There are two circuits, one of which is 3.5 km and the other 4 km, using public roads and paths. Just follow the signposting (stencilled stylized bunch of grapes).
The western looped circuit is a longer (4km) and takes around 1 h 30 mins.
