That tour is designed for foodies who want to taste the best of our region and explore the local mediterreanean way of life. Along the day you will taste typical biscuits and sweets, sample fresh oysters, local cheeses, olives and tapenades. You will also stop for lunch in the beautiful medieval town of Pézenas and finish the day hosted by your guide at his winery to enjoy his wines paired with local cheeses in front of the vineyards.
Start the tour at 9.30am from the Esplanade de l'europe in Montpellier with your guide and take off for a ride to the Thau Lagoon and its beautiful landscapes bathed in the mediterrenaean light.
