le camping des favards is at the heart of an organic wine estate
Located in the heart of the southern Rhône Valley vineyard, on a clay-limestone and stony soil, the Domaine des Favards produces rich, generous wines of great character. The farmers cultivate in organic farming 25 hectares ofCôtes du Rhône appellation and Côtes du Rhône Villages Plan de Dieu. They welcome you all year round. Visit of the estate and tasting await you there.
Concerned about their impact on the environment as much as the quality of the wines offered, they have made the choice since 2012 to produce organically. They thus contribute to the protection of the planet. They therefore respect the very strict specifications defined in Europe since 2007. The winegrowers thus undertake not to use any synthetic chemical product (fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, etc.).
A sustainable development approach
As an extension of their ecological commitment to the production of wines, the owners of the Camping Favards actively and fundamentally wish to limit their impact on the environment and waste. The upkeep and maintenance of hedges in the vineyard landscape provide natural shelter for a large number of animal species. This is possible while protecting the vines from the harshness of the sometimes violent and icy Mistral, which characterizes this beautiful region.
Almost all waste can be recycled, taking care to sort it daily. Several facilities are provided for this purpose.
- First the packaging bin. Only to receive the yellow bag distributed free of charge on your arrival. It contains steel and aluminum packaging (cans, trays, cans, aerosols, etc.), cardboard packaging (boxes of cakes, detergent, cartons of milk, etc.) and plastic packaging (bottles, flasks, trays …).
- The glass container: Bottles, jars, jars of jam, only glass.
- Also the cardboard box: cardboard boxes or plates.
- The paper tray: Magazines, newspapers ...
- The composter: For all organic waste.
- Finally the household garbage bin for all other waste.
Thanks to selective sorting, 50% of household waste can be recycled. Then they again become raw materials ready to form new objects, thus saving natural resources.
The compost obtained by sorting food waste allows, after spreading, to have healthy and fertile soil without using chemical fertilizers.
It also provides ecological shelter for a large number of microorganisms. These microorganisms are beneficial and necessary for the ecosystem (bacteria, fungi, yeasts). But also to other organisms such as earthworms, whose action is essential.
Starting point for sports and cultural activities
In addition to the activities within the camping (swimming pool, pétanque competition, tastings etc.), the Camping Favards offers you to take full advantage of its geographical location. It is very privileged to practice the surrounding activities.
There are close to the camping, many hikes and walks for all levels. The Dentelles de Montmirail tour is particularly famous for its climbing sites. Culminating at an altitude of 730 meters, the massif is approximately 8 kilometers long and offers you an overall hike of 57 kilometers. The Rocher du Turc is a short hike in the footsteps of the Saracens through the fortifications. The rock of Rocalinaud, also called “lunar rock”, sculpted by winds, water and men, is a walk in the middle of the vineyards of Beaumes de Venise, not far from the Lace of Montmirail. The Courens plateau overlooks the village of Beaumes-de-Venise. At the top of the plateau, you will have exceptional views over the plain of Comtat Venaissin and the Dentelles de Montmirail.
Mountain biking and cycling
Do you like cycling? Whether for walking, roaming, sports cycling or mountain biking, you will find a thousand possibilities of routes and bike tours in Provence. Mont Ventoux is a benchmark in the cycling world. It is nicknamed the Giant of Provence or Mont Chauve, and rises to 1 meters above sea level. It is one of the most famous passes in France. A real challenge for all cyclists!
