Departing from Toulon, you will head to Le Castellet -- a typical Provençal hilltop village. Perched on a wooded hill above the vineyards, this remarkable stronghold, formerly owned by the Lords of les Baux, has well-preserved ramparts, a carefully restored 12th century church, and a castle dating back to the 11th century.
Enter by way of two fortified gates, le portail and le portalet, to begin a walking tour through the narrow streets up to the castle, which now functions as the Town Hall. You will see St Sauveur church with its lovely windows before taking in the view inland towards Ste Baume and Paul Ricard Circuit.
Free time allows you to explore the arts and craft workshops, scouting for paintings, pottery and hollow-ware.
You are invited to stop at a famous vineyard (Domaine de Souviou or similar) to taste some local wines. This very beautiful Provençal winery features an adjacent chapel surrounded by 79 acres of vineyard. Some very fine wines are produced here, and the 2,500 olive trees are famous for their delicious olive oil. Your wine tasting session will include three types of wine.
Shopping is limited in Le Castellet outside of the main touristic season.
