Attractions in Vaucluse
Vaucluse – the place to be, all year round
This desire to explore is also thanks to local gastronomy with its taste of sunshine in both summer and winter and the abundance of vineyards in the Rhône Valley, AOC Ventoux and AOC Luberon – colouring the landscapes green in spring and golden-brown tones in autumn.
By bike, by foot, or by mountain bike – this part of Provence boasts blue sky and sunshine all year round.
Vaucluse – a destination blessed by nature
Your next Provence adventure in this beautiful setting:
- Go by foot and enjoy the scents of thyme and lavender in the summer, broom in the spring, freshly picked olives in the autumn…
- Go by bike and sail freely down pathways while admiring the stretches of vines, fields of lavender, olive groves and poppy fields
- Go by mountain bike and breathe in the fresh mountain air at Mont Ventoux, hear the screech of your tyres on the Luberon’s ochre lands, and take advantage of the ridges and crests at the Dentelles de Montmirail
A land filled with history and stories
Follow in the footsteps of the Romans in Vaison-la-Romaine where you can see the remains of 2 antique villages. In Orange, the Triumphal Arch and the Roman Theatre reflect the importance of their presence at the time.
In Avignon, the Popes’ Palace, overlooking the famous Pont d’Avignon, summarises the impact of the installation of the popes in this city in the 14th century.
In addition to these must-sees, as you explore, discover the legends inspired by geological particularities and the bories and chapels that line the hiking paths.
Vineyards and flavours
Then comes the delight of the market – a necessary stop for all the foodies who enjoy the finer things in life – and finally, the genuine art that is Provençal cuisine which highlights local produce (melons, strawberries, cherries, olives etc.). And concerning the chefs, stars are certainly not lacking here!
