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.

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.

Our hosts were charming and helpful but certainly not intrusive. The location is ideal for visiting the many interesting villages in the area as well as convenient for Avignon and Orange. We couldn't fit everything in but Venasque and Gordes are a must. I have to agree with a previous comment re the bed - I'm a bad sleeper but I slept like a log this week. Everything is supplied in the little kitchen (except food, obviously) for preparing simple meals as well as general consumables. There is even a bottle of the owners' own grown olive oil. The pool is very refreshing particularly after a day out exploring. If you are single or a couple looking for quiet and relaxation but with plenty of lovely places to visit in close reach, this takes some beating.

Very well done interiors, extremely comfortable and chic bedrooms and bathrooms, amazingly equipped kitchen (we cooked at home almost everyday), fantastic views, and one of the best locations in provence...in the real heart of everyday provence. The house looked better than the photos (if possible) and was impeccably clean. They have a wonderful cleaning lady called Solange, whom we used everyday for a few hours to clean and settle the house and that was a great service to have access to on holiday. The linens, dishes and everything in the house was of a very high quality. There was a pool table, and comfortable sofas, and umbrellas for hot days by the pool. The sunsets from the house were a treat unto themselves. Olivier was extremely responsive, and would get back within the hour with anything minor that we needed ti resolve or have a question about. We had a heatwave while we were there and he immediately organized some fans to help in the rooms etc. I would not just recommend this property, but would happily return to it myself next summer. It was a beautiful 10 days we all spent at this lovely home. Thank you
