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

Vaucluse is a mountainous department in Provence, in the south of France, with Mont Ventoux dominating the view from most Vaucluse properties. This tranquil department inland from the coast has a variety of landscapes and cultures, but what is certain is that a property or holiday villa in Vaucluse will allow you to relax whether you use it as a base to discover the department on foot, bicycle or car.

Places to holiday in Vaucluse, France

The festival of Avignon is the most famous even in Vaucluse. The official festival has 20 locations, but the fringes extend to include around 450 shows and acts, and there is something to tickle the fancy of all travellers to this region.

Apt is a charming market town, rich in walled buildings and long narrow streets. A rental property here acts as a fantastic base for hiking and cycling, due to its proximity to the Luberon en Velo cycle paths.

Carpentras is another old town with a concentrated old town in the centre, rich in historic buildings like the St Siffrein Cathedral, fourteenth century Porte d’Orange, Chateau des Comtes de Toulouse and Roman Arc de Triomphe.

Menerbes is a stunning stone village perched on a high ridge overlooking lush plateaux below. Here are the only two dolmen sites in Vaucluse, which are both very impressive sites.

Things to do in Vaucluse, France

There are 4000km of marked walking trails, 700km of bridle paths and 236km of bike trails in Vaucluse, taking you through every landscape; mountains, ochre, plateaus and vineyards. There is also exceptional trout fishing on the Rhone, and carp fishing on 30 lakes throughout Vaucluse. For rock climbers, the tranquillity and range of rock faces means that Vaucluse is a premier destination, and keeps climbers returning to tackle the cliffs year after year. There are 3 top-class golf courses here too, and a Golf Pass Provence’ allows you to play them all. Whether you decide to take a Vaucluse holiday villa for the walking, cycling, fishing, golf, climbing or canoeing, you will certainly not be at all disappointed. There is also the opportunity to ski on Mount Ventoux in the winter.

Provence is known for the number and quality of restaurants, bistros and cafes boasting some of the best natural produce of France, including the full bodied wines from the local vineyards.

Vaucluse has a long and varied history, and snippets from its past can be seen all over the department. Roman ruins, sites from the middle ages, Renaissance and Baroque heritage can all be found here. There are also 53 museums in the department, which give a fascinating insight into the past of Vaucluse, and make sense of the beautiful scenery which surrounds every Vaucluse holiday property. The castles of Comtal, Ansouis and Brantes are all spectacular, and tell the story of different periods of Vaucluse’ heritage.

Some of the most beautiful villages in France lie within the borders of Vaucluse. Walking to the hilltop villages of Aurel, Brantes, Crillon le Brave, Gordes, Lourmarin and Menerbes is well worth the effort.

Great Location

5 of 5
We really enjoyed this property which was perfect for 4 friends. Very well equipped with great bathrooms and comfortable beds. Hosts were nice and communication was easy. A great place to base yourself for exploring Provence.

Lovely, well appointed house in great area

4 of 5
A beautiful house with some fantastic touches; so lovely arriving to fresh cut flowers and a fully stocked fruit basket - Simon takes real pride in providing his guests with a luxurious stay and that's what we had. It was also a great house to have kids in, with the provision of not only a cot and a high chair, but even a buggy - so useful for helping to cut down on the packing. The house is really well served by the surrounding village, with lots of bakeries, restaurants, shops and amenities - you don't have to travel far to find what you need, everything is walkable and there are some great markets. All in all a lovely holiday with fantastic weather throughout.
