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.

                                                            This was a beautiful property with very hospitable but respectful hosts. Lovely gite, gardens and swimming pool we were a family of four and it met and surpassed our expectations. Thank you

                                                            Wonderful place to relax with family and friends

                                                            We spent a wonderful week here, in a group of four couples, one of whom had two kids also. Lots of interesting things to do nearby but we far preferred hanging around by the pool and relaxing! I'm sure we will return.

                                                            Romance in Provence

                                                            Booked online for a week's stay in the gite at Auberge du Vin as we wanted somewhere romantic for Valentine's Day! The directions were easy to follow and even though we arrived late, Linda and Chris were so welcoming and even left us an 'apero' and some nibbles! Gite Tourelle is smartly furnished in traditional Provencal colours and every mod con is provided. Parking is not a problem and is very secure as the main gates to the courtyard are locked at night. The gardens are beautifully maintained and the pool area looks very inviting, I bet in summertime it is wonderful! The gite itself has two good sized bedrooms (one double and one twin), each with its own bathroom, there is a lounge/dining room and kitchen area. The weather was quite chilly but the central heating was very effective and there is also a log fire (with plentiful supplies of old vines to burn). Chris and Linda were very helpful in recommending markets, shops, restaurants etc, especially which vineyards to visit. Linda is a qualified wine tutor for WSET and is on hand to offer professional tips - I would thoroughly recommend one of her courses, I never realised how much I didn't know about wine until I did the course! The small town of Mazan is a five minute drive (bars, restaurants, supermarket), but Carpentras is only ten minutes away if you want to do a big supermarket shop (the market on Fridays is well worth a visit, particularly in the winter as they have a special truffle market)... Perne les Fontaines is worth a visit as is Isle sur la Sorgue on a Sunday for its antiques market (both a short drive south, then on to Avignon for some culture); going north Orange is worth a look with its Roman amphitheatre, also Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas and Vacqueyras for some serious wine tasting... With the new station opening soon in Carpentras with direct links to Avignon and Marseille, this makes travelling a lot easier; Marseille and Montpellier airports are 1h 20 and 1h 30 respectively and Avignon airport (summertime only) is 30 minutes away. All in all, we had a wonderful time - can't wait to come back again!
