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.

Idyllic holiday cottage

5 of 5
From the moment we arrived to the moment we regretfully left Les Laurentins we enjoyed our stay. The peaceful setting and the facilities are first class, Veronique's warm welcome after a long drive really set the scene, and her subsequent helpful but non intrusive advice made us feel very comfortable. The swimming pool was a great asset during a warm fortnight. The cottage is well equipped and certainly had every we needed for a relaxing holiday. The walking in the Mt Ventoux and Luberon National Park offers tremendous variety with walks ranging from easy to challenging - in our experience all worthwhile. We would love to return to Les Laurentins and have no hesitation in commending it. Thank you Veronique for providing the opportunity for a memorable holiday. Roger & Janet

Beautiful Chateau with all the amenities

5 of 5
Mas de la Quintine Is a beautiful Chateau with all the amenities and it is situated in beautiful Provence. The Chateau is very well maintained, with very large dramatic gardens. My wife and I stayed here for a week with our family and another couple for a total of eight persons. We did not use one of the bedrooms and bathrooms that was upstairs in the main Chateau but the home would have accommodated another couple. We watched only the Tour de France on TV but the satellite system and entertainment systems were exceptional. All programming we found was from the U.K. Our typical day was a leisurely breakfast eating out door on the huge covered patio table. A morning swim then off to explore one of the very cute villages or wineries nearby. Late afternoon at the Chateau was spent, napping, reading in the shade of the gazebo and swimming. The pool and yard is very private. The property has large electric gates that insured our privacy. When you arrive at the property you are soon met by Bruno the manager. He will explain everything about the Chateau and pool and give you keys and gate clickers. Bruno is absolutely exceptional. We knew we would be tired on our first day with planes, trains and automobiles so Bruno offered to make us dinner (prearranged of course). Bruno is a great chef and we ended up eating two full meals on all the great dishes he prepared for us. Bruno is always available by cell to help with questions or problems. He has great restaurant recommendations. Also, He found us a wonderful chef who prepared all of our breakfasts and three incredible French dinners during our week. We were very pampered. The town of Carpentras is just down the street for any shopping or other items you may need. This quick shopping convenience was much appreciated. We had a wonderful week at Mas and I know your family will to. Paul and HomeAway made all transactions very simple. Enjoy Provence!!
