From Arbuel to the hills of Condrieu – Rhône Pilat – Condrieu


Attractions of this route

The Arbuel trail, shaped by thousands of mules carrying coal from the mines of Rive-de-Gier to the port of Condrieu.


The lush Eden of Arbuel and the influence of the south is evident in the presence of southern flora.
The opposition between the wild nature of the Arbuel ravine and the mineral nature of the vineyard slopes.
The panoramas of the Rhône Valley, with the occasional appearance of the curves of the Ventoux.
