Gargas Holiday Homes

Make a holiday rental home or villa in Gargas, France your home away from home.

Gargas, France

Not to be confused with Gargas in the Haute-Garonne department of France, Gargas in the Vaucluse department is a comune that has expanded rapidly in recent years, and is now a relatively popular option for those seeking a holiday rental base in the heart of the Provence. Many buildings in the area date back to the Middle Ages, and the village certainly has an ‘old world’ feel about it – though it is the earth-coloured pigment ochre for which Gargas is most famous, and visitors can even visit the old quarries during their stay.

Things to do in Gargas, France

Gargas has grown in size over the last 10-15 years, and now encompasses a number of smaller hamlets in the area. The village is best known for its still-operational ochre quarries – making it the only village of this type in the Vaucluse department. Some of the these quarries can be visited by the general public, though it is advised to consult the local tourist information office beforehand to check exactly which ones offer this facility. Remember not to wear white clothes during your tour – the reddish-brown pigment can get everywhere!

Gargas has several old buildings and historical sites around its picturesque centre, the highlight of which is the 17th century church. The comune also has a respectable selection of amenities, and a pleasant full day can be spent wandering the narrow streets and shopping in the local stores. After a day or two you will likely want to get out into the surrounding countryside, and this unspoilt part of the Luberon offers many days of hiking, walking, horse riding, fishing and cycling opportunities.

Places to visit on holiday in Gargas, France

Further afield, Cavaillon (33km) is famous for its markets, and the best place to visit to pick up fresh local produce. The local speciality is melon, which will almost certainly be the freshest and juiciest you have ever tried!

Simply fabulous

A wonderful little detached gite with amazing views over the verdant valley below. Easy access to Viens and other Luberon villages with a car.

Lovely, secluded cottage

Great location, and the house was very well equipped. Mme Pedersin was very helpful, despite our poor French!
