We are well placed for exploring all these wonderful sights of Provence and for enjoying its many leisure activities.  We are on the doorstep of the wine regions of Cotes de Rhones and Cotes de Ventoux, close to mountains and to the famous and beautiful Luberon.  Other places to visit include  

  • Avignon with its history, the Pope’s Palace, festival and relaxed atmosphere

  • Orange where there is a stunning Roman amphitheatre which is home to stunning events during the summer

  • Vaison la Romain with Roman and medieval sights and or favourite market

  • The Luberon villages of Gordes, Rousillon, Menerbes and Lacoste

  • The Gorge de Vanesques

  • Pont du Gare which has many activities. 

The collage of photos above includes from top left travelling clockwise:- Le Palais des Papes, Avignon; the harbour at Cassis;  a street in Gordes; a red squirrel in the garden;  the entrance to a local domaine;  a vineyard in a hidden valley in Les Dentelles.

If you enjoy outdoor activities, there are wonderful walks and cycling from the house or in the mountains a few minutes from here.  Les Dentelles de Montmirail are famous for their sheer sides and challenging rock climbing as well as for visually dominating the area.  Part of the Mont Ventoux section of Tour de France passes our front door so we get a lot of cyclists practicing all year round!
