    The above mentioned events do not cover all the events in the region, please check with the local tourist office or Syndicat d'Initiative about dates and hours. 


    Always carry your passport and never leave anything of value in a parked car. Try to park in the shade during the summertime - the heat can be mortal for children and animals. Camping wild (camping sauvage) and making open fire is forbidden everywhere due to the risk of bushfires, and fines are heavy. And - extremely important - the picking of grapes from a winefield or fruits from an orchard will not make you popular!
