After 2 glorious weeks at our villa near Vaison-La-Romaine it’s time to move on. We pack up the minivan (Clampett-style) and head about 50 miles southwest. We are in Comps, near the intersection of the Rhone and Gard Rivers. The first thing that stands out is that it’s flat here. The landscape is completely different. We have left the hilly, lush and abundant vineyards and caveaux of the Cotes du Rhone wine region. Now we are smack-dab in the middle of a region filled with fruit orchards.
Our 39-mile ride today crosses the Rhone River.
It goes through acres and acres of peaches, nectarines, apricots, apples, pears.
These naked trees used to have cherries before they were all harvested this earlier month.
