The Surrounding Area

 It is a wonderful area to explore, with its many beautiful villages, each with their own market days. A short stroll takes you to the pretty village of Bedoin with it's many restaurants and bars and the famous Monday market.

The Papal city of Avignon, and Carpentras, famous for its truffle market, are both near by. They both have excellent shops, and long summer festivals with music, dance, and theatre. Avignon’s cultural activities continue throughout the winter. All the local villages have fetes during the long hot summer months. For antique lovers, the world famous market at L’lisle-sur-la-Sorgue is a short drive away. The unique Vaison la Romaine, medieval on one side of it’s river, and with Roman remains the other side, is just to the north of the Mount Ventoux.

The Roman cities of Orange, Arles and Aix en Provence are about an hour’s drive away.

The Camargue, with its wonderful wild life, with flamingos, bulls, and wild horses, about 90 mins away. Also about 90 mins away is the pretty coastal resort of Cassis. A thirty minute drive takes you to the Luberon.

For good food lovers there are many exceptional restaurants very close by.

The wines are mentioned in more detail in the house guide, but as well as the favourites, Gigondas, Chateauneuf-du-Pape and the wonderful desert wine of Beaumes-de-Vanise, you may also like to try the wines of Vacqueyras, as well as, of course, the more local wines from Les Vignerons du Mont Ventoux in Bedoin.

For those who get bored sitting in the afternoon shade, reading a book, with a glass of wine, it is a wonderful area for walking and cycling. You may like to try the Tour de France route to the top of Mt.Ventoux! There are rivers to fish, or canoe, horse riding, and the village has tennis courts.

Local Attractions

The markets in France are fabulous, free entertainment, good for shopping and for people watching. Sit in one of the cafes next to a market and while away the morning. Provence has probably the best markets in France. Most open-air markets are farmers markets, where you can buy vegetables, fruits, cheese, meat and poultry, sausages, spices, candied fruits, nougat and flowers. Larger ones have clothing, shoes, linens, pottery, records, old books and bric a brac.

Most villages have a market but here are some of our favourites:

Bedoin. The Monday morning market which is alive with music, cafés and a wonderful selection of food, clothing and local craft stalls. The village is closed to traffic and during the summer the stalls extend from one end of the village to the other.

Mormoiron. This is a Sunday morning market which is very small but full of local produce.

Sault. This Wednesday morning market is large and well worth visiting. The village is in the centre of the lavender growing region of Provence and remains a fine example of a traditional French provincial market.

Carpentras. Friday mornings. Very close, and one of the largest in France, in existence since 1155. Huge, bustling and wonderful.

Isle sur La Sorgue. Visit this famous Sunday morning market with over 300 antique shops and many, many brocantes. It is a pretty town with its streets meandering along the river edge.

Vaison-la-Romaine. This wonderful town, half medieval and half Roman, has a huge Tuesday morning market, one of the best places to shop for bric a brac.

Lourmarin. Not to be missed on a Friday morning, even if a little further away. This is a very chic market in a beautiful village.

Aix en Provence. The markets, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays are well integrated into this historical and beautiful town, great place to sit and people watch. (Also a great town for shopping, eating and art, a day trip!)

St Remy de Provence. Wednesday morning market in this delightful town of art, antiques and boutiques.

Villeneuve les Avignon. Get up early on a Saturday morning for this wonderful brocante market. Breakfast on oysters and wine or hot chocolate and croissants with the locals. We have found many wonderful things here for our houses, but beware, an English van often turns up early to bag all the bargains before speeding back to the UK!
