    Things to do

    -Local sights. A Papal enclave in the middle ages, Valréas is home to a number of pretty medieval churches and chapels. You can take a tour of the town, starting at the tourism office, and taking in 14 of the main sights. At Grignan there’s a medieval hillside village, with a fantastic castle. It dates originally to the 1000s, but was updated in Renaissance times and is regarded as one of France’s best monuments from this era.

    -Walks. At Valréas’ tourist office you’ll be able to get detailed information about the 18 walks that can be taken from the commune. A number of these walks are devised to showcase the papal history of northern Provence, dating to the time that the pope was based in Avignon. The best evidence of this era, dotted around the countryside, are tall, carved stones from the 14th and 15th Centuries marking property boundaries and the identity of the landowners.

    -Bike rides. A fabulous circular ride can be had by setting off for Visan. You’ll follow a winding lane that passes through vineyards, pine forest, fruit orchards, as well as the oak woodland where black truffles are sourced. From Visan to Richerenches your adventure will be all the more colourful and fragrant as you cycle past herb farms and fields of lavender. From there you head to Grillon and back to Valréas, with the picturesque Montagne de la Lance in the background.

    -Roman history. Not far south of Valréas are some magnificent Roman towns. Orange is southwest, and has a large Roman theatre in a near-perfect state of preservation, with astounding acoustics. In Vaison-la-Romaine there’s also lots of ancient heritage in the shape of a bridge, spa and villa. There’s a small archaeological museum here with mosaics and statues. Vaison-la-Romaine also has a beautiful medieval centre.

    -Local produce. Foodies could check out the nearby attractions like the snail farm, where 600,000 snails are bred for consumption every year, as well the local goat dairies. There’s also a large fresh produce market on Wednesdays in Valréas, where you’ll find season fruit and veg, as well as meat, cheese, and a host of household items. And every third Wednesday there’s the truffle market, considered one of the best and largest in Europe.
