Les Chevaux du Mistral COURTHéZON

Vincent, a graduate of France's top horse-breeding institute Haras Nationaux, and his superb black Friesian stallion Winter take visitors on a number of themed horse-drawn carriage outings between Courthezon and the Dentelles de Montmirail.

By prior phone reservation, minimum 2 people, every weekend and during French school holidays. Can take up to 5 adults (or 7 people if some are children).
1) - COURTHEZON LA MEDIEVALE (guided tour by horse-drawn carriage):
30 minutes in the heart of the village to admire the gates, ramparts and monuments from the carriage. Prices €10/person or €45 for 5/7 people.
Departs from: Car park by the Apriorithé tea room - 11 Boulevard Victor Hugo, in Courthezon.
During the season (late April to late October) every Sunday afternoon in partnership with the Apriorithé tea room, COURTHEZON LA MEDIEVALE is transformed into LA CALECHE GOURMANDE, and the price includes a snack before or after the outing, served in the tea room (oriental pastries or cake with mint tea or cold drink).
2) - THE VINEYARDS AT A CANTER (faster horse-drawn carriage ride):
See the landscapes of the Ventoux, Dentelles de Montmirail and vineyards on secret little tracks drawn by a horse at a walk, trot, or a canter. This ride is suitable for anyone, but will be especially enjoyed by thrill-seekers. Lasts approx 1.5 hrs. Prices €15/person or €65 for 5/7 people.

3) - PICNIC OR TEATIME IN THE VINEYARD (""Like in the days of stagecoaches""):

Lasts about 4 hours including the stop.
