Make a holiday rental property or accommodation in Carpentras, France your home away from home

Carpentras is a large town with a concentrated, ancient centre, which surrounds the town’s most prominent building, the cathedral. Anyone with an interest in either history or architecture will love taking a Carpentras property. Located in the shadow of the mighty Mt Ventoux, Carpentras has been a vital market town since at least 46BC, the time of its first documentation.

Things to do on holiday in Carpentras, France

When you first arrive in your Carpentras accommodation, take a short walk into the very centre of town, marked by the St Siffrein Cathedral. Around the main square in front of the cathedral you will find all the best shops, restaurants and cafes of Carpentras, as well as the majority of the most interesting and famous monuments, including the Roman Arc de Triomphe. This is also the location for the weekly Friday market which serves the whole region. If you are there during the correct seasons, you too can sample Carpentras’ finest export; strawberries. The market has been in existence since 1155, and is enormous, filling much of the town with stalls.

During the week from 27th November, the St Siffrein Fair rolls into town, bringing with it all the gastronomic specialities of Carpentras, including the famous black truffles, strawberries, melons and bonbons!

Walking is a favourite activity on a Carpentras holiday, and there are a huge range of marked paths leading away from the village and off into the lush hills. The tourist information centre has maps and trail information, including the routes for a couple of wine tasting walks. Many of these walking trails can be easily and enjoyably completed on horse back or with a mountain bike.

Slightly further afield, the foothills of Mt Ventoux offer the ideal location for para-gliding and mountain climbing. If you are hoping to climb or take to the air during your time in Carpentras accommodation, you should again head to the tourist information centre who will send you in the right direction for equipment hire and the best places from which to try and conquer the mountains.

Great holiday in a beautiful villa!

5 of 5
We had a lovely stay in your beautiful villa. Everything was immaculate and the pictures don’t quite do it justice. The pool house and kitchen add a real convenience factor with the games area and boulodrome to the rear of the property providing lots of fun for all of our group. We enjoyed also the convenience of being so close to Carpentras, the local supermarket (SuperU) as well as being able to go for walks and bike rides. The area, the weather and the location were just perfect. We will come back again later on this year. Thank you so much.

Truly beautiful home with magnificent gardens

5 of 5
Mas de la Quintaine is just as breathtaking in real life as it looks in the photographs. The grounds are extensive and beautifully manicured and our children had lots of fun bouncing on the trampoline and swimming in the pool. The house itself was extremely clean and well-equipped and we felt very much at home. Upon our arrival, we were promptly greeted by Bruno who showed us around the property and gave us lots of wonderful recommendations. By far our favourite was the "Carriere de Lumiere" -it must not be missed! Our children, aged 8 and 10, loved it too. We followed our visit with a lovely dinner in St. Remy de Provence. I would like to add that Bruno was also very helpful throughout the rest of our stay and always promptly responded to our texts. When our daughter developed an ear infection, he quickly recommended a wonderful doctor and she felt better the next day. Overall, we thought the property was just beautiful and Paul and Bruno could not have been kinder.
