The village of Beaumes de Venise takes its name from the many caves dug into the hill ("baumes" means "caves" in Provençal). It's worth photographing: when arriving in Beaumes-de-Venise, you can see the beautiful 17th century fountain near the restaurant La Table des Balmes. As you enter the roundabout, you may have noticed the sculpture: the hands of a picker, in Crillon-le-Brave stone.
The local market is on Tuesday morning.
Typical Provençal aperitif for the holiday home:
Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise is considered by connoisseurs to be one of the best in France. This wine is used as an aperitif and as a dessert. Since 1943, this Muscat Beaumes-de-Venise has been classified as an AOC for natural sweet white wines. The percentage of alcohol must be at least 12.155% and the yield cannot exceed 30 hectoliters per hectare. The grapes must have a sugar content greater than 252 grams per litre. The wines must have a sugar content of at least 110 grams / liter, after all very strict legislation!
Beaumes de Venise 'des pointes', fifteen minutes from the holiday home:
Worth a detour, about 5 km further towards Loriol-du-Comtat is the Old Gare de Loriol-du-Comtat where you can eat or quench your thirst. The old train bed has been refurbished and you can cycle or inline skate.
